As for the fireworks, that verbiage in the link that iKristin posted is exactly the same verbiage that we saw before the tickets went on sale to the general public. It was there when the tickets were sold to AP holders, etc. I am more interested in the lengthier HalloweenTime press release that will come down the wires via Disney Parks Blog or D23, because I want to see exactly how they handle the subject of Halloween Screams in their wording. That will be a bit more detailed, and we will be able to tell if they are going to show Halloween Screams on non-MHP nights at all (even on Saturdays, if no other days).
I think she's referring to the email stating that Non-MHP guests will be cleared an hour before event time. I'm guessing they will start herding non-party people out at 6 since it'll take a full hour to get to everyone. (if what's stated in the email is correct)

Heya,

I wouldn't sweat it. They have to respond to public inquiries like this, but chances are they will make announcements to encourage people to exit, but they won't force the issue. Just get on a nice long ride before the "close" time, and then hide in plain sight. I don't plan to buy a ticket just to watch the fireworks, so this is what I am doing (don't want to ride or do pictures, etc. and the ticket is way overpriced just for fireworks - wish they would do a second tier "Fireworks Only" pass or something...). If a castmember asks me face-to-face to leave I will, but I really doubt they will actually do that (as the posts on the other site indicate). I have been in the park plenty of times during grad nights (as a regular guest), and after a while they just announce "anyone still here is welcome to stay!".

Best of luck!

I have a problem with what you are doing. If you want to see the fireworks that bad, then spend the money and get tickets to the event like the rest of us that are going, and stop work around the system. I hope that a CM catches on to what you are planning to do, and forces you to leave the park. This is JMHO as I hate people to try to bend the rules to their own advantage.

I have no desire to watch the Halloween fireworks. I saw them on youtube and wasn't impressed at all. I'd just like to hang around to walk through shops. Maybe get a hot chocolate and just wander around. As dorky as it is, just wandering the park is one of my favorite things to do.

Mine too! There are those times where, especially if you've been on a bunch of rides already, you just feel like sitting on a bench or wandering around, with no particular goal. Sometimes that leads to the best discoveries - you may find a cute little shop you never knew existed or a little corner of one of the parks that you've never seen, and unknown or unexplored territory always means more Disney details and hidden gems to uncover! When we are all busy racing to and fro, trying to grab Fast Passes or get to this line or that line before it gets long, or stand in a huge mob of people to wait for some show or other, we tend to overlook things. It's often on those "just wandering" days that we really see a lot of what DLR has to offer.

Heya,

It's not dorky. Especially after dark. The park totally transforms, and it's a great time to get pictures and people watch.

Hope it works out for you!

Just like you AmyPond, I love to walk around through the park and watching the nighttime shows instead of doing the rides. I like the rides at both parks, but it is a bonus to me when I go down to DL. It is fun to go through the shops and look at the art work and the different variety of dessert food. Every time I go to get a FP, I just collect them instead of using them.

It's not dorky at all! Disneyland itself IS the best attraction! Just being there is a wonderful experience. Look at the lights, listen to the music and wonder at the magic that is all around you.

I can't believe this thread is almost to 100 pages! For the heck of it I went to see when I first "joined" it (under my old board name PeytonSdiz.) My first post in this thread was on May 7th and it was only on page 22! Crazy!

Don't be too jealous - we've already hit 104 in my neck of San Diego today and we usually have weather like Anaheim, so I assume it is a similar temp!

Amy Pond, the sun sets around 6:30 the end of Sept and I believe the stores on Main St stay open an extra hour, so if the park closes at 8 pm, you'll have time each evening to just wander and soak it up. Plus the benefit of less crowds!

I know this is not necessarily your ideal, but we always go when the park hours are limited, and it is so nice to wander through DTD after the park closes and see all the twinkle lights, listen to the bands playing, etc. You are going to have a wonderful time!!!
