Anyone going to Disney on Leap Day for 24 hours?

In relation to Disney Parks but not specific to a single resort

True. I guess I would just have to load up on caffeine in soda form and sugary desserts and snacks to muddle though, haha.

A Dole Whip, a churro, a sweet cream cheese pretzel, banana bread pudding, and an ice cream cookie sandwich all in one day would probably keep me hopping for 2 days, not just 24 hrs. :donald:
Or put you into a diabetic coma :shock: Although...if you spread those treats out over a 24 hour period, that's not so bad ;)

My guess is that some of them will stay - at least until midnight or 1 am. Between 1 and 6, though, I bet you'll be able to walk onto any ride you want.

I think the key is not to stay there 24 hours but to sleep in the afternoon and arise like a vampire once the sun goes down for some all night fun. :hm_ghost:

Just saw a few posts on Facebook about the taping of Modern Family goes to Disneyland episode. The filming was done on Leap Day. That seems weird to me that they would tape a television show there during what they would have to assume would be a busy day :? I taped the episode tonight but haven't watched it yet...

Possibly so there would be crowds there for the background and the weather would be agreeable?

Agree with Wizz, and it probably made for a better promotional stunt for both the parks and the show itself.

I suppose, it just seems like they wouldn't want to add the extra crew and logistics to a super busy day...

Might also be tied to the plot if they are supposed to be going when the park is slammed, cheaper to not pay for extras than to pay for them.
