  • 10/6/07 Craziness. Can you say "Cah-rowded?"

    So I was at a meeting down the street at the Hyatt, and I stopped by last night on my way home. (There was a Hot Wheels convention in town. Who knew they had conventions for Hot Wheels? :blink Downtown Disney was an absolute zoo. It was about 10:15 pm as I walked through and it was wall to wall people from the ESPN Zone down to the gates. I can't recall seeing that many people down there before.

    Here's a couple of shots from last night (10/5):














    After more meetings this morning, (10/6) I stopped by on my way home in order to see how many had made it to the meet today. As I arrived, Mary Poppins was just finishing up "Jolly Holliday" in front of the castle:










    I finally spotted quite a few faces in front of IASW waiting for the parade. Sadako and Monorail Man...




    The Forbidden Eye and the back side of DinseyIPresume...



    Princess Buttercup looks on...



    After the parade it was time to set off across the park for a Micechat trip through the Haunted Mansion. So off we went.

    Except, when we finally arrived, we found this....




    Just a wee bit of a crowd. Here's a photomerge of the line....




    Adelade tells everyone not to panic. Dusty has a plan...




    Penguinsoda has never seen this many people in her entire life...




    Pezz Lightyear thinks "You CAN'T be serious!"




    What to do about the mammoth line from hell? Princess Buttercup comes up with a solution:




    Bribe the CMs with Mr. Yummy Skeleton Pops!


    But, our CM wouldn't budge. Happily, the "bribe" was not needed as it turned out that we had enough fastpasses from within our group to make it in. :clap:




    (More to come...)

        It's funny to see the real world flesh and bone versions of Micechatters!

        It's the weekend, and Halloween Time, and Gay Days Weekend. The crowd is just the offspring of that traingle (and that's speaking as a Summer Warrior).

                And for what it's worth, I miss seeing some of my MiceChat friends in the flesh.

                Your report is the next best thing, LDF. Nicely done.
                God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

                    Is it safe to say that it's going to be this crowded tomorrow?

                    I'm going to celebrate my cousin's 5th birthday and he absolutely loves Nemo, so we're hoping to get on the subs.

                        So because you post on an Internet discussion board, somehow you feel you don't have to wait in line?

                        That right there is reason enough to abolish FastPass and Annual Passholders.

                        My sincerest apologies to anyone whose wait was made longer by that selfish display.

                            you know, I miss seeing MC'ers, but with crowds like that I'm glad I didn't go. I would have left....yikes.

                              I agree with the spirit of your post, though I think you may have overreacted a bit. Me, I'm still trying to decide how serious the OP was. But...why did you bring up FastPass and APs? Both are great systems for helping everyone get a chance to ride what they want...so I'm not sure how that relates to this.

                              Anyway...wow. That's a LOT of people.

                                If I recall correctly from last year's Gay Days weekend, Sunday, most of the planned events move over to DCA - and as such, Disneyland isn't as busy. That didn't help much last year with the CHOC Walk also happeneing on Sunday, but it was truly manageable - more so than what I saw in these pics from today.

                                As for getting everyone on HM, I always thought Dusty had a touch of "MAGIC" in him somewhere...and that's what I'll continue to believe!
                                I love my awesome crazy wonderful friends!!

                                then 10 seconds later you�d be playing like you were best friends?"

                                  :blink: Um.....I'm a relatively new AP holder (only 2 years) and I don't go around bribing every attractions host I see.....don't know why we suddenly got shoved into that generality....

                                  And I agree with others who've posted that for all we know that statement could've been made in jest. I don't think it's anything we need to lose sleep over.



                                  Anyways, those crowds look insane! Don't forget on top of everything else it was Columbus Day weekend, too! Talk about a nasty combination of events.

                                      I was being facetious. As mighty and powerful as Dusty is ( ), I don't believe he has the magical ability to conjure fastpasses. (Although it wouldn't surprise me.) As far as I know, they were real fastpasses that were procured by real people using real machines the same way that everyone else was able to get them throughout the day.


                                      And...Mr Liver? Did you really mean to suggest the aboliton of Annual Pass holders?

                                      Nice. I can't wait to hear your suggestions for how this would be accomplished.

                                      (Original post edited as to avoid having this thread devolve into a discussion about the "evils" of fastpasses and annual passholders.)

                                        Could it just be they were trying to take a cute picture? We all try to ham it up when we have the chance.

                                        I went yesterday (I am going to post a quasi-TR about it.), to the Cove Bar at like... 4pm. OH MY GOD! Total mad house! So fun though because everyone was in a great mood and spirits (pun intended).
