 Best Post of the Day 9-11-13
Good morning!
This sad day in Disney history, September 11th, 2001.  Following the mornings tragic terrorist attacks on The Pentagon, New York City's World Trade Center and in the air over Pennsylvania, Walt Disney World and Disneyland closed without incident.

Flag


All the resort hotels remained open and provided accommodations to guests who were unable to leave. Phone charges were suspended so that guests could reach family and friends. Food and beverage stations remained open at no charge for guests who were on property. AMC Theaters in Downtown Disney were kind enough to show free Disney films for stranded Resort guests.

The closure marked only the second time Disneyland had locked it's gates in its 56-year history due to a national tragedy.
The first time was after the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in November 1963.

gates


The photos I found are from an article written by a cast member who worked at the park on September 11th, 2001, as part of the "skeleton crew". I enjoyed the read and found it pretty interesting, it has even more photos from the nearly empty park. A true rarity as Disneyland is normally open 365 days a year. To read:

I know today is a somber one, as we morn and pay our respects to the ones we've lost, let us remember how blessed we are to live in the most wonderful country in the world. Please don't let another moment pass without letting someone YOU love know how much they mean to you.

God Bless the USA! Never forget!

This is a very hard day for me as I lost friends in that tragedy.  It's a constant reminder that, as you said, we need to let our loved ones know how much they mean to us.  So, with that said, thank you Admin for giving me a new family, and thank you all of MW for welcoming me into yours.  I love you all! - DisneyDavidEMT  2631.8 #49 8:41AM
David please feel free to DM me as needed. I am sending you tons of hugs. - missmimi90  2032.1 #76 8:54AM
I'm very sorry for you lost friends on this horrific day. I just remember my very smart almost two year old actually crying and saying why would someone fly a plane into a building. I hadn't even told him what happened or why at that point. We need to all tell our friends and loved ones as often as possible how much they mean to us. I'm thankful for this app and the friendship it has created for most of us. I hope you have a good day still and know your very cared and loved by many.  - Tinkerbellmom4  440.2 #499 9:09AM

I too lost a friend and feel your pain. I think I can speak for everyone when I say, we are beyond happy to have you on MW! It's always great to open up your world to new people, who give you hope that goodness still exist. Sending you a big hug!! - BriarBeauty  121.7 #3193 1:34PM
Love and gratitude to all.. I deliberately , as an act of defiance, went to DL on 9/12, ( the news had said that DL was a possible target ), and I went to Great Moments with Mr Lincoln and the flag retreat and held my head high while tears streamed down my cheeks... - carminaire  805.3 #229 7:51PM
πŸ˜ͺ. Brought back all the emotions of that sad day. I know living my life doing the daily routine sometimes I forget to appreciate the people in my life and my country. Thanks for this reminder! - sultan  45.4 #4977 8:53AM
This day as well as Memorial Day and Veterans' Day always has me numb.  Like many who have answered the call to serve whether it be as first responders or military duty, service is not done for money or glory.  I can't put into words what I'm thinking about how much has changed.  I've changed, friends have been lost, and we as a nation have changed.  I'm thankful for my family and for Disneyland giving us all a place where it's ok to escape the world. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #185 9:09AM
Thank you got your service Sir! Yes! So grateful for family and DL as well! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈπŸ’— - Duchess_SMK  6349.2 #18 10:44PM
Disney is just so magical.  It has helped us remain and grow as a family. - BombFrogFormerCM  1015.8 #185 10:55PM
Thank you for this post, Duchess. It is so important that we don't forget. I got emotional talking about 9/11 with my children this morning as I took them to school. Amazing how fresh the memories are, 12 years later.  - BaronessVonShush  120.6 #3222 9:27AM
We had Andrew Card, Chief of Staff, during the 9/11 crisis speak with us just a moment ago along with survivors. It was incredibly touching and made me so proud to be an American. This morning coming into work it was still quite dark only the light from the moon illuminated the surroundings and on an overpass was a soldier pacing back and forth holding the American flag -it brought tears to my eyes. I hope everyone finds peace in their hearts today and everyday. Thanks for allowing me to share and thank you to all that serve. - BibbidiBobbidiBoo  99.7 #3606 9:34AM
Thank you for Posting this!  I come from a Military Family, my Dad was in the Navy, retired after 32 years, my husband is retired Air Force, my oldest Son is in the Navy now and my youngest son is enlisting in the Air Force next Month.  Our Country is the Great Nation it is a because of our volunteer Military, Police Force and Fire Fighters!   - luvthemouse  277.9 #1077 9:40AM

"It's better to feel pain, than nothing at all. The opposite of love is indifference". May God bless those who lost their lives on this day and their families. May we never forget that it's ok to feel pain and to always show love and kindness to one another. - missmimi90  2032.1 #76 8:51AM

We had a partial 3rd day closure and that was after the Northridge earthquake as well. Whatever you believe happened on 9/11/01 I thing for sure is you remember where and what you where doing that day. panic , fear, confusion and some hate was felt all over. As we have many mwrs here that serve in the community I am grateful for their courage and the courage of all those responders that faced danger to save as many as they could even if they didnt not know that for some of them it would be their last day on earth. They passes away as super heroes because they were already heroes.This reminds me of how fragile life is and try to be welcoming and loving toward others. Thank you , everyone is a hero in my book - pikarich  5247.2 #22 9:44AM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

Super Bowl unFORECAST for the week of Feb 1, 2016
Everyone always asks if it will be busy on Super Bowl Sunday. Historically the answer is always YES, and this Sunday should be no exception. Since last week, weekdays have been surprisingly slow (very low crowds). We expect more of the same this week, until Friday. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 60s (approx 60% capacity), and it jumped a little during Super Bowl weekend. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Feb 1, 2016 12:06PM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  618.5 #331 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  20.5 #7247 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  438.4 #500 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  171.2 #2391 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  249.4 #1358 5:04PM
I'm glad Saturday's are good we are going tomorrow ! - vanessav87  5.4 #17635 3:45PM
6 of us going Sunday 11 6 year have use that annual pass - jmmm  0.5 #79333 12:12PM
