One More (24-Hour Day) at Disneyland

Poll: How would you spend a full day in the Magic Kingdom?

It could be a Disney fanatic's dream or -- if you somehow get stuck listening to "It's a Small World" the entire time -- a mind-destroying nightmare.

Starting early Wednesday, Disneyland and its Florida sibling will celebrate leap year by staying open 24 hours straight.

That's the equivalent of 1,440 great moments with Mr. Lincoln.

Officially dubbed "One More Disney Day," the Mickey Mouse house marathon runs from 6 a.m. Feb. 29 to 6 a.m. March 1.

What will guests do with a full day in the Magic Kingdom? Here's what several visitors to Disneyland's website said:

  • I would have fun trying to see how many “Hidden Mickeys” I could find.
  • I would ride Star Tours ALL day in an attempt to see all 54 scenarios!
  • Go on every ride and see all the shows, and say thank you to every cast member I see.
  • I'm tired after 4 hours and can't imagine walking around there for 24 hours!
  • I would ride all the Mountain Rides (Splash Mountain, Space Mountain, Big Thunder Mountain) over and over again.

And now, dear readers, it's your turn. Take our poll...

The cars are no longer going to be the seatbelt setup they have now, I think they may be getting lap bars. They are also doing major rennovations, possibly adding in fastpass for the ride, probably more handrails along the track, etc.

sad part about this is that not ALL the rides are going to be open

People are already lining up, well allowed to, since the lineup will start at 10 PM tonight for the 6 AM opening. First 2000 guests get special mouse ears (same as the normal ones with a different sticker)

It is so cold tonight. I hope Mickey is handing out hot chocolate!

It's just an evening of friendship and fun for a bunch of retired cast members (Go Golden Ears) We are meeting to have a magical night of fun.
