As we arrived in the park, everything felt like an ordinary day. There were no signs suggesting a temporary closure starting the next day. No announcements were made. It was as if the end of the day wouldn’t mean closing the gates for the rest of the month, if not longer. The fear of crowds hasn’t stopped anyone today.
Guests were spread out around the park on their phones, hopeful for a Boarding Group for Rise of the Resistance.
Many people choose to wait in line for the new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction at the Chinese Theater before the park officially opens at 8 AM. These are the crowds prior to 8 AM. The crowds were a mix of local passholders as well as visiting guests from around the world. Everyone was ready to make the most of the last day before the parks close.
The crowds were lighter than usual, but it still felt like a typical day in the park.
The rest of the day felt oddly normal, which is probably a good thing.
The times guide is for March 15-21, since they’re printed in advance.
The digital tip board on the way out of the park still says “See Us Tomorrow”, but we will not be seeing them tomorrow.
The park is officially closed now, so we have to make our way out of here, unfortunately. The closure will last at least through the end of the month, but as always, be sure to keep following WDWNT for all the latest information and updates around the Disney Parks closures around the world and all of the latest Disney news. Thanks for joining us today, and we’ll see you real soon!
