    Default How do they get people out of the park before Mickey's not so scary?

    I noticed when I was there that there was no closure between the regular day and the party. Do they just patrol and ask anyone not wearing an armband to leave? Seems like a inefficient process if so and one someone might be able to get around.

    Actually, the park closes to regular guests at 6pm and the party "officially" starts at 7pm. At 6pm, CMs start to herd anyone without a party wristband toward the exits from the back of the park to the front. It is very orderly and if you were not looking for it, or one of the people getting herded out, you would not even notice it happening.

    IF anyone DOES 'get around' it, as soon as they are spotted -- trying to get on a ride, in to a show, or just by happenstance -- they are quickly escorted from the park.

    At 6pm, the doors to shops, restaurants and even restrooms are closed and CMs are stationed outside the doors to prevent anyone without a party wristband from entering. Guests without those wristbands will be politely, but firmly directed to the front of the park.
