  1. We never should have even tried to stay for the pimerer. Got different info from every employee we talked to. First it was You need a Fast Pass (we didn’t). Then Your Grand Californian gate may open early (it didn’t). Actually we couldn’t get in that gate at all due to Press events and celebrity stuff. Part of staying at that hotel was to have our own entrance into the park.Both parks closed early and opened late. DL opened at 10am on Friday. 10AM! Grad Night further screwed times. DL closed at 8pm on Thursday and DCA closed at 5. Wow, open from just 10-5.Then we needed wristbands to get in DCA just to try for Fast Passes. No one had any idea where to get a wristband. Heard World of Color was standing room only for just 3500 people. That’s crazy if true.The whole day Thursday and Friday were just screwed up. No more Premiers for me!
