  • Trip Report Son got to open the park

    We were there Thursday morning for rope drop. We were standing in Kodak at the door. We were there first and were quietly waiting when a group of cheerleaders (5?6?) crowded in and kept trying to open the door and run out. The guy manning the door kept telling them to knock it off and even I told them to stop. I said "the park has been there for 55 years you can wait 3 more mins it isn't going anywhere" The guy came back and firmly told them to either stop it or he was going to lock off the door and make everyone move which would then make everyone mad at them. Then when he came back again to open the park he told my son that since he was so good NOT messing with the door, that he could "push the red button" and officially open the park. It played that guys voice "LADIES AND GENTLEMEN BOYS AND GIRLS" etc and he gave him a sticker. DS11 was thrilled. Has anyone else done this? I haven't heard of "opening the park" before. All in all a wonderful time we opened and closed the park crowds larger than I expected but managable with a plan

    I've never done it myself, but sounds really really cool to do.

    (no comment on the way the cheerleaders were acting. people tend to be more wild in groups. take them individually and I'm sure that none of them would be behaving in such a way)

      In reference to those cheerleaders...spoiled brats would be the operative words here.

        That's cool! I hate when guests are rude and acting inapropriate. Especially when it's a group of teenagers. Not saying that all teenagers are like that!

          People like those cheerleaders are probably one of the most irritating things in life.

            Awww...how cute!

            I would be so proud. Not only was your child behaving better than an older group, but he also got recognized for it. I would bet he'll remember that moment forever.

              I'm not familiar with what you mean by "door." Or "standing in Kodak." Is this DL or DCA?

                I've been to the parks a billion times and I don't know what they meant by that either.

                But it's cool that your son got to open the park! It's too bad there are people like those girls who have to act that way.

                  What I think they were saying was that they were waiting inside of the Kodak shop at the end of Main Street. On some days, guests are allowed to congregate on Main Street (and in the shops) prior to the park officially opening.

                  It sounds like they were waiting in the Kodak shop, which had it's doors closed, and the other group (referred to as cheerleaders) were trying to open the doors and run out of the shop, into the rest of the park, before official opening time.

                    So there are doors that face out into the park, past the rope.

                    And their son got to open the park from those doors or out on Main Street?

                      This sounds really cool! We always go at park opening and I've never seen this "red button". Is it only in the Kodak shop or do you take it out in the front of the crowd on Main Street?

                        The quotation marks lead me to believe that there is not an actual red button to push.
