    No email for me. Not like I can go anyway. Nice to see they are keeping Carsland open for the event.

    Have a Disney Day!

    No email for me... can't go to the first one, but might be able to swing the second one. Maybe I'll wait to decide until I see reports from the first one :-)

    None received. Went to one of these in Feb and was so crowded I left early.

    I'd LOVE to go, but we get there on the 8th and leave the morning of the 19th! Too bad it wasn't a day earlier. I did get the email, but didn't register.

    I thought you couldn't register until the day of the event? Or is it different for people who got the email?

    I understood that APs could register at ticket booth #4 starting at noon on the day of the event. Oh, and no email for us either. We'll try to hit one or the other, not sure which one.

    I got the email (and live in the Los Angeles area), but already have plans to go on the 6th (MouseAdventure practice with my team) and 13th (for the special event). Adding the Thursdays would be admittedly overboard.

    Club 33 1/3- Decades Advanced Spring 2010: 25th Place
    Beware the Groove- Trick or Treat October 2010: 88th Place
    Beware the Groove- DatP Card Games Spring 2012: 16th Place
    Technical Difficulty Bears- World Explorers IV: 5th Place (tied)
    Beware the Groove Returns to Mouseadventure in September 2013!

    The email that I received said that I couldn't register until the day of the event. It appears that not all AP holders received the email.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    You're right. I didn't read too carefully since I knew I couldn't go. :-)

    To passholder event veterans: We are flying in on the 5th, but won't get to the park until about 1:30pm. It states limited space several times. As registration starts at noon, need we fear getting shut out?

    Thursday is a no-school day for the Los Angeles Unified School District. My few moments of considering switching our plan to go to the parks Wednesday to going Thursday and getting wristbands for this are over- I suspect Thursday will not be a week-after-labor-day-uncrowded day at the Disneyland Resort, but perhaps I overestimate the effect of a school holiday for the LAUSD (I don't think Orange County schools, in general, are closed that day).

    Maybe not. I remember going one day last year (and I wish I remember when), and the surface street approach to Disneyland was jammed. I made a comment on Twitter about it, and several people replied that it was an LAUSD holiday.

    Should I expect the line/wait at ticket booth to be long? Just wondering what is the best way to fit this into our day. Send one person ahead early to get a spot in line and all meet up closer to wristband distribution time? How good would our chances be of getting wristbands if we show up close to 12:00?

    Line for DCA limited time passholder magic event

    Can anyone recommend a good time to start lining up for the DCA event in September if they are going to start handing wristbands out at 12:00? Obviously I want to get there before all the wristbands are handed out, but I want to spend the least amount of time in line as possible. Thanks!

    Anyone go to the event yesterday? How was it?


  21. #20

    I went last night with some friends. We didn't check in to get our wristbands until around 7:30pm. There was no wait in the wristband line and that went very smoothly.

    Overall, I'd say the crowds in the park were light-moderate. 20 minute wait for ToT, 30 minutes for TSMM, RSR was down when we walked by. No wait for Soarin' at 10:30.

    The only complaint I have is that the AC was off in all the rides early in the event. CM at ToT said the AC went off when the park officially closed at 8pm and they had called maintenance to turn it back on. AC was still off in Little Mermaid when we were there around 10, but on in Soarin'.

    The 'gifts' get handed out starting at 9:45, so you could not just check in at 8, get your gift and leave. However, the gift was only a Little Mermaid magnet promoting its release on Blu-Ray so I'm not sure you'd be missing much.

    It was a fun night - I'd do it again.

    Thanks for the info. Sounds like I don't need to worry about waiting in line for wristbands. Since we have a trip booked for the 19th anyway, I am just glad to have extra hours in the park. The gift is just a mini bonus.

    Thankyou. Both A and I have reacted to something and I itch from head to toe. Doesn't leave much brain power behind.

    Interesting. So they're doing an AP exclusive thing in DCA on the same night they're doing the extra hours at Disneyland for everyone for the kickoff of Halloweentime. I'll be at Disneyland, enjoying pumpkin beignets and villains.

    On the pre-signup list for Inaugural Starbucks Run.
