|Trapped inside Disneyland. Been there, done that.|
Call it the Most Crowded Place on Earth. Or, It's NOT SUCH a SMALL WORLD, after all. Or, How Dumbo are Tourist? Or my favorite, Stand In Line All Day long for $200 and Go No Where.
It has been mass confusion at Disneyland during the past two days. You know, it was bound to happen. For the first time in 55 years of operation, Disneyland was filled to capacity, just two hours after opening on Tuesday, and it was also the second day in a row that the Magic Kingdom here in our hood was forced to turn potential guests away because of overcrowding.
Look for hundreds of thousands of fans from Wisconsin and Texas Christian University to be arriving in LA for this weekends Rose Bowl. Yep. All those travel delays have put everyone back a couple of days this week. What a mess.
The freeway traffic and streets around Disneyland are totally packed. Today and Thursday is going to bring lots of rain and wicked winds to So Cal. So, be careful when you ride the "Matterhorn Bob Sleds," you know, the one in Fantasy Land, not those up at Big Bear Lake.
Welcome to the OC! BTW. How many peeps can fit into Disneyland? My sources say it can fit around 80,000 MAXIMUM. BTW. The Rose Bowl in Pasadena can fit over 106,000 people for a football game. So, that gives you a hint....
