I think FastPasses stopped at 10ish or so, but they were still taking FastPasses up until closing.

Yeah, from what I saw it just depended on the ride how late they gave out FPs for. I know Space Mountain had them going all the way until 4am when it closed, but I think ones like Snow White and Winnie the Pooh stopped them early, like 1-2am. I'm not 100% though, so please correct me if I'm wrong.

That looked amazing! In 4 years, whose up for hitting both MK and Disneyland on the same day? :b

Quite frankly, the ammount of people inside disneyland was rediculous. I got through the gates at 10 and shortly after the park hit capacity. I didn't go on a single ride but I did talk to some people I hadn't seen in a long time and it was interesting watching the chaos unfold. I left around 1 and it looked like thousands of people were still trying to get in. Imo, disney would have been wise to have had dca open but I'm thinking that those in charge didn't expect to see the turnout that occurred for a 24 hour event in the middle of the week. General park merch and odv carts weren't selling much but lines for places like jolly holidays and popcorn carts were extremely long. I'd be interested to see if disney met or outperformed all of their financial goals with this little stunt.

Why do you have to wait 4 years? You can do this on pretty much any day assuming that DL is open until 8pm or later (and obviously depending on your flight).

We were going to do this on our last trip (got into LAX at 6pm) but decided not to. I know some people who have done it on a normal operating day.

Congrats on making it the entire 24 hours! I struggled just by arriving at 7 last night and staying till 1 this morning! Needless to say, I'm not getting a lot done at work right now! Hope you're getting some rest!

Jen and I were there from 7 till just after midnight, and the crowds were pretty crazy at that point in the night. Either way, got a few rides on some of my old favorites and had a great time. Not sure how in the world you guys lasted 24 hours, I was done after 5!

Although I did not get to see the TPR Madness, I did enjoy the one more Disney Day. I was sad to not be one of the 3,000 to get the hats...but fortunately they were handing all the extras out at The Town Square Theater at the end of the night. The park did seem to get a little busy in the evening and I even found my self surprised at how many people stuck it out until 6. Some cast members did the whole Fly to Lax and hit the other park which seems fun. A very succesful event and I really hope they do another one....maybe all 4 parks :)
