  • Do you, by any chance, have a schedule for Disneyland? =D

  • Looking forward to spending the wee hours of the morning in MK!

    But…we normally take the Resort Monorail. Those hours are listed as:
    Resort Monorail – 5 a.m. to 12 a.m.

    Does that mean there is no resort monorail service from 12 am – 6am? How else would we get back to Polynesian at some point when we are ready to drop after midnight but before 6am (likely to be around 3am)?

    I assume the boat service will not be running either. Is the only option the bus?

    Thanks for the info!!

  • Do you happen to know the times for the boat from Wilderness Lodge?

  • Awesome, you guys are great!

  • Thank you so much for the bus info. It was the missing link in my TP!

    I wonder if they’ll try squeezing in a Kiss Goodnight. Sunrise is 6:50am on March 1, so it seems technically possible…

  • Any time Monorails are closed, there will be plenty of boats and buses available for all guests until the last guest is clear of the park. Have no worries, you will not be stranded. I’m a monorail operations worker, don’t worry!

  • i’m still confused. Disneyland will be OPEN tomorrow 2/29/2012 right? Lol.

    Do you know if there will be anymore One More Disney Day merchandise sold online? When we got to Magic Kingdom on the night of 2/29 it was SO crazy and I forgot to buy a t-shirt or something to commemorate the night. Have you heard anything? Thanks so much!
