DCA Oct Hours Extended to Midnight Because of MNSSHP

According to MiceAge note today...

Quote:
EDITOR’S NOTE 10/2:The first Halloween party last Friday brought record evening crowds, with DCA in particular swelling to 35,000 people inside that park by 9 PM. Those are epic numbers only seen before at DCA in June for the Cars Land debut. In response, TDA will now extend DCA hours out to Midnight on all remaining Friday's in Oct. While Disney cut the smaller Employee Holiday Party on far less busy weekdays in early December, they're going to great lengths to keep the profitable Halloween events going on packed Friday nights. The CM's working with these huge October crowds and extended hours no longer believe the corporate spin on why the 57 year old Holiday Party tradition was canceled.- Al Lutz

MNSSHP? How does something at the Magic Kingdom at WDW affect DCA?

We were at DCA last week and one night hours were extended from 8:00 to 9:00 and a second WoC added. We asked a cm and he said it was because of crowds for Yom Kippur.

It was our first trip since the park was redone and we really thought it was awesome. We were there 7 nights and spent most of our time at DCA. Rode RSR 9 times! 6 in single rider, 3 in fastpass.

Ooops, I got my abbreviations confused. I need to talk to the author of that abbreviations thread and get my story straight.

I know this is a side note, but I feel awful for the CMs regarding the holiday party being taken away. I know Disney isn't obligated to do this every year but it makes me a little sad to see a tradition come to an end for the people that work so hard to make the parks a little more magical each day.

So funny. I had looked at that same calendar before I posted and no change. Now it is. Guess I missed it by this much.

I was there that Friday night! Absolute madness!
They must have let all the people who were kicked out of DL, into DCA, even without a park hopper!
