P. 391: All the details about Disney Merriest Nites at Disneyland!

Recommended Posts

That was literally no way to prevent this. The materials needed are inside the park and non-suspicious on their own. Its just the idiot that decided to combine them. Its takes only a few chips of dry ice and water plus a water bottle to make this, so there was NO chance at all to prevent this.

^The treat vendors have to have access to the dry ice to keep their food items cold. You're really blowing this completely out of proportion, and you need to let it go.

 

This is completely right. This was a stupid prank and nothing more. If you take into account how long dry ice has been used by cast members at the park then this is simply a little blip on the radar. In my opinion Disney has done a great job of keeping their parks safe considering the number of people who go through the turnstiles every day. While I don't feel sorry for the CM responsible, they will likely make an example of him which means a very harsh punishment for a stupid prank.

I never knew Disney used dry ice to keep food cold. At Cedar Fair, they used ice to cool food.

It has been mentioned several times in the last couple of pages...

 

Like Chuck said, settle down and quit with the drama on this forum.

Dinnwitted was the same person blaming Carnival for not knowing where each passenger is at all times and taking 3 hours to notice that a passenger was missing in the middle of the night. I'd hate to live in the Orwellian security state that he dreams about.

Maybe you really should stop posting if you don't know what you're talking about. Or just stop posting...

UPDATE

 

- Pleading not guilty

- Bail lowered to half a million.

Disneyland Employee Pleads Not Guilty to Dry Ice Explosions

 

ANAHEIM, Calif. (KTLA) — A Disneyland employee accused of setting off two dry ice explosions at the theme park pleaded not guilty on Thursday.

 

Christian Barnes, 22, of Long Beach, was charged with a felony count of possession of a destructive device in a public place.

 

Barnes was originally reported to have set off one bomb, but authorities revealed on Thursday that he allegedly had two water bottles containing dry ice.

 

The first bottle exploded in his vending cart, and a second bottle tossed into a trash can went off several minutes later, prosecutors said.

 

Barnes’ bail was set at $500,000, down from $1 million.

 

His next court appearance was set for June 7. He could face six years in prison if convicted.

 

The explosion in the trash can was reported around 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday in Disneyland’s Toontown area.

 

There were no injuries and no damage reported, but it caused quite a commotion.

 

Parkgoers were evacuated from the area immediately, and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department Bomb Squad was called in to investigate.

 

“We’re not certain that he understood the full weight of what would happen when this did go off in those trash cans,” Anaheim police Sgt. Bob Dunn said.

 

“Is it possible that it was a prank? Absolutely,” Dunn said. “Are we investigating it as a crime? Absolutely.”

 

Barnes’ father, Raymond, told KTLA that he thought the whole thing was just “an unfortunate mistake.”

 

“He’s not someone that would do something to hurt anyone or anything like that,” he said. “He’s not violent at all.”

 

“They have a right to check into things thoroughly, and I understand that,” he said. “But when the smoke clears, they’ll see that he’s a very good kid.”

 

Disneyland officials said they were taking the matter very seriously and were working with authorities.

We wanted to let Disney Parks Blog readers know that starting tomorrow, June 2, tickets to our Florida and California theme parks will be adjusted with new pricing.

 

As we’ve heard from many of our guests, the quality entertainment and attractions and the memorable moments created by our cast make a Disney theme park experience a great value. There’s something for everyone at Disney Parks to make a magical vacation memory.

 

You can now find information on the different ticket pricing on our Walt Disney World Resort ticket page and Disneyland Resort page.

Can't wait for the two weeks of faux outrage followed by the 50 weeks of big attendance before the cycle repeats itself.

 

Yup. People fail to realize that the cost of operating a theme park as successful as DCA and DL only rises. More guests=more staffing/maintenance/food/merchandise/etc. That doesn't even take into account adding new attractions/shows to the park on a constant basis. The only way to maintain their profit margins and still provide the Disney experience is to raise the price.

I dont' see the value any more in Disney's parks, but that's okay. The price is an offer of services. I'll pass for now, unless my personal value proposition changes. Which it most likely will when I have grandkids some day. But for now, I'll let my family's APs lapse and skip WDW entirely the next time I'm in Orlando. It's too much money for the four attractions we enjoy or to access drinking around the world.

 

Disney's product no longer has value to me, but the wider market obviously sees things differently. The Disneyland Resort seems busier than ever. The prices should be raised to maximize revenues and cause some would-be customers to balk, because we're getting close to this:

 

Disneyland: Nobody goes there anymore, it's too crowded.

Agree with this. In the 18 months between my last two visits (November 2011 and May 2013) the parks seem significantly more crowded and frenetic. Obviously Cars Land and DCA 2.0 are the drivers of this, and possibly the time of year, but even so there are definitely more crazy "gotta have the perfect visit" type guests.

 

As far as the actual ticket prices go, for foreign visitors (like me) a few dollars extra isn't going to make any difference anyway after you factor in flights, hotels and all the other costs associated with travel. For locals, $20/year is what, 40 cents a week? Ouch...

Value is all relative: as is mentioned every single time Disney increases prices, people pay a lot more for things like sporting events and concerts. No reason Disney shouldn't capitalize if they can!

We decided long ago that we weren't renewing our passes. It wasn't really because of the price but more that life is so busy we just don't go enough to justify the price anymore.

 

I mean, I was just looking through pictures to find the monstro picture for the "rides that eat you thread" and decided to see how many visits we've actually had in the past 8 or so years.

 

2005 = 5 / 2006 = 11 / 2007 = 22 / 2008 = 25 / 2009 = 26 / 2010 = 13 / 2011 = 11 / 2012 = 4 / 2013 = 3 (all on one weekend in Jan)

 

120 visits over the last 8 years is enough for awhile I think.
