    They’re posing for the photos. A photo of them working probably wouldn’t look as good.

    How do grand openings like these work for Disney? Do people set up tents and what not at the entrance and camp out overnight and what not. How do they handle the crowds because theres a legit chance I could be in California for the grand opening and would easily camp outside the night of to be one of the first guests in the land.

    In my experience with theatre, when photographers come take photos during our tech, they always ask the technicians to strike "action" poses that don't make any sense with the equipment they're using, but supposedly it "looks better". I'm sure those are employees who are fully aware how dumb those poses are. :lol:

    There would most likely be a big campout in the esplanade for opening day.

    I always feel for the uninformed tourist that shows up to a park on a grand opening he had no idea about.

    I remember being in Orlando when Potter opened and seeding the massive line that stretched out to City Place. I would be so pissed if that was when I had accidentally booked my trip.

    I think they're taking into account the guests who enter and exit the park as individual numbers. You're right though theres no way it could hold 150,000 at one time.

    I would imagine Disney would want crazy estimates to both keep the hype up and discourage some people from coming early as capacity is limited. I also think in the lost potpotter world people may better understand just how bad of an experience opening days can be and how crowded they can get.

    Mickey and friends has supported 2 parks with 10,000 spaces for 20 years. You don't think an additional 6,500 spaces is enough to support one new land? It'll be fine.

    I was referring to the estimates of 100k to 200k people showing up on opening day. My bet parking becomes full.

    1.) Those numbers were pulled out of someone’s ass.
    2.) DL has an abundance of Surface parking
    3.) It’s not like this will be the first time in modern times that DL gets hit with huge crowds (24 hour day 2012 was a disaster, but they survived parking-wise).

    Debatable. Disneyland Resort parking fills to capacity all the time.
