  • Kinda Lame Question....But What the Heck???

    How does Disneyland officially kick everyone out at closing? Keeping Main Street open for an hour after closing is a good idea to get $$$ and slowly siphone everyone out. But has anyone has an experience where you were there to the bitter end...where you were ASKED to leave?

    I would imagine they suit up in riot gear and start swinging--As soon as the Main Street Shops close, the magic stops.



    Any experiences?

    The stores actually shut and lock the doors, with the guests inside, as the guests leave, they do not allow anyone else inside. Thus officially flushing the guest out of the store. Main Street is blocked off (like when it is open in the morning prior to the rest of the park opening), with security there to move people towards the front gate (and the two open gates that I lovingly refer to as the "get the hell out gates"). =o)

      I believe they use bull horns, whips, tazers and mace. At least that was what was used on me. Oh wait, we're talking about DL. That was an entirely different closing I was thinking about.

        Let's not forget the hot oil they pour over the castle as guest try and make entry.

            There are actually some people who have to be the "last one" out of DL.

            My wife sees them on a nightly basis.

            There are no lame questions, just lame answers.

              How about these photos actually taken at Disneyland, instead:





              Yep. It can get really rough at closing time.

                Those cops were there for a "Main Street Police Parade".

                Didn't go over well and was replaced by MSEP.

                    From what I always heard, Disney never forced people out of the stores. So if MS stores closed at 1:00am, people would occasionally stay until 1:30am and the latest was until 2:00am. I am not sure if they got forced out for staying until 2, but 1:30 happened very often in the Emporium.

                      We enjoy just hanging out at closing time and watching people leave. Usually along the area next to the Matterhorn and Alice's ride.

                      Very peaceful ending to what might have been a busy day.

                      Eventually, a CM (sometimes security) will "inform" us that the Park is now closed. We say "thanks and good night" and then leave.

                      Disneyland after dark is the BEST time to enjoy it!

                        I've walked around after closing and I never had them say anything. Besides I don't think they would be rude about it anyways. Nice pictures of the riot police though.

                          I think it's an interesting question.

                          How DO they find the last hidden teenager? There aren't heat seeking cameras all over the park, right?

                              i read that they just have dogs with security guys that walk around, and im sure they know where the most "popular" places are to hide.

                                I have a friend who used to work in Tomorrowland - when Tomorrowland worked. Anyway, park closed at midnight, but she told my buddy and I to wait for her underneath the Rocket Rods track. Well, we waited until 12:57 and a security officer asked us why we were still there. We told him we were waiting for our Cast Member friend, and he said we'd have to wait outside the front gates....but we were lucky, because just then, she came running out to meet up with us.

                                I don't know why we were waiting.....I think I might have been driving her home that night or something.

                                  On my friend's last night as a Disney CM a few of us came into the park and stayed for his last boat on the Jungle Cruise. We were there until like 12:30 and then just walked out and no one said anything to us.

                                  My best score ever!

                                      At closing, security used to start way back in the far "corners" of DL (like in Critter Country, Toontown, TM) Then they would walk forward "herding" the guests before them. They wouldn't really push, but they wouldn't allow guess past them back into "cleared areas". Security would check the rest rooms as they cleared the area. If guesses were still on a ride, they would stop at the ride's exit and wait for the guess to leave then continue forward. Then they would met up at the hub or top of Main St.

                                      When the park used to be open until 1 am, we janitors would work in the backsatge areas until the area we were to work in has been cleared by security. The summer I worked in Small World, so we would clean the boats that were backstage in boat storeage until all of the guesses left the ride, Then we could turn on the inside worklights and start cleaning the boats inside.

                                      I remember when I was hoser, we would park our scooters just backstage behind the large gates between FL and BTRR trail. Once that area was cleared far enough that the guesses couldn't see, we would open the gates. But we had to stay far enough behind security that the guess couldn't see us.

                                        That parade only started when THIS dude refused to leave. I believe it was August 6, 1970.
