  • Why does Disneyland always close at 6pm the 1st 2 weekdays of December?

    I'm trying to plan an early december trip to Disneyland but am frustrated as to why Disneyland always closes early at 6pm on the first monday and tuesday of every december month. Is it that disneyland candlelight procession that is a hard ticketed event or is it closed for something else

    Please explain these dates to me. If you can.

    They close early on these days because of the Disney Holiday party is on those dates for all CM's and employees.

      Those are the nights of the cast member partys. The CM's can bring a guest and enjoy the park for an evening. I understand they only do this at DL and not at WDW. More power to them, the CM's deserve a night at the park without te public. California Adventure will be open later those nights so hit MK early and CA until closing.

          Not precisely true though it gets the point.

          CM's can ride the rides they are working at in costume and occasionally do for 'test rides' or training though I expect there are some policy differences in policy across lands and rides.

          Riding in other lands or other rides is prohibited as it destroys theming.

                Unfortunately many leads and managers throw theming to the wind during the cast mem ber events even with their friends and families in tow.

                  The only policy regarding riding rides or buying food in costume during these nights is that you have to be on your break or off the clock... it is most definitely prohibited during normal operating hours but the cast parties are much much different.

                    Its an early close but usually a pretty awesome time to go, the lines during the day are fairly short and the fireworks go off early so you can have a good day at the park, watch fireworks, have a nice dinner and a free evening.

                      Ahhh that's very nice of DL! The CMs deserve it and more!

                      I thought I was holding it correctly.

                        This is not true on the night of cast member parties. Which are the nights in question! You're pretty much working.. but are a free person!

                          I was responding to the post:

                          "the only time a CM can ever ride a ride with their costume one" (should have been "on", of course)

                          which was not precisely correct.

                              The Cast parties are much fun!

                              The churros are discounted, too.
