Disneyland Closes Gates As Holiday Crowds Fill The Park

Disneyland temporarily shut its gates Friday, Dec. 27 as crowds filled the Anaheim theme park and new visitors were directed to Disney California Adventure across the esplanade until attendance levels declined.

“We have temporarily stopped selling tickets to Disneyland Park,” the official Disneyland Today Twitter account said. “As of 11:40 am, Disney California Adventure Park tickets remain available. Updates to follow.”

Disneyland closed its gates at 11:40 a.m., less than 4 hours after the park opened. Disneyland diverted visitors to Disney California Adventure until later in the day when crowds were expected to diminish.

Disneyland is currently at capacity, Disney officials said. “Visiting the Disneyland Resort during the holidays is a tradition for many people and on high demand days like today, we do all we can to welcome as many guests as possible,” Disneyland officials said in a statement.

Tickets for Disney California Adventure were still available at 1 p.m. on Friday. Visitors who purchase a “divert ticket” with park-hopping access will be able to visit Disneyland later in the day after starting at Disney California Adventure.

“Annual Passports valid on this date are still good for admission at this time,” the official Disneyland AP Twitter account said.

Disneyland occasionally halts visitors from entering when the park reaches capacity, which is estimated to be about 75,000 people. Disney doesn’t release attendance figures.

The holiday week between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day is typically one of the busiest times of the year at Disney’s Anaheim theme parks. The holiday break was stretched to two weeks this year with Christmas and New Year’s Day falling on Wednesdays. That meant the weekend between the two winter holidays was likely to be a busy one at the Anaheim theme parks.

Touring Plans, which tracks wait times at theme parks, estimates that crowds at Disneyland will be at a peak level on Friday through Monday, Dec. 27-30. Inclement weather earlier in the week likely caused some visitors to delay their visits.

Disney fans determined to visit the “Busiest Place on Earth” were met with longer than usual wait times for Millennium Falcon: Smugglers Run (125 minutes), Hyperspace Mountain (120 minutes) and Indiana Jones Adventure (110 minutes) on Friday.
