The big Leap Day promotion at Disneyland will kick off a day early on Tuesday night (tonight).
Disney is allowing visitors to line up starting at 10 p.m. Tuesday (tonight), eight hours before the park opens. The first 2,000 guests will get special Mickey Mouse ears.
Disneyland will stay open from 6 a.m. Wednesday until 6 a.m. Thursday for the promotion, called One More Disney Day.
We asked people who are planning to go to the Leap Day party to share their stories.
Here are some of their stories sent via email, which are edited:
Zach Holmquist, 26, of Salt Lake City:
"I am from Salt Lake City, Utah and we are flying out on the 28th to be there for the 24-hour party. My family booked/planned the trip as a birthday gift to me this year and surprised me with the trip. My wife and baby (15 months) will be flying out with me, but they refuse to stay that late!"
Ian Golder, 47, of Oakland:
"For One More Disney Day, I will be going with my ex-wife. Our honeymoon was at Disneyland and that was definitely the worst visit I've had there, so this is like a do-over now that we've moved on and are just friends. Both of us have had recurring Disneyland dreams our whole lives."
Brenda Stockton, 45, of Las Vegas:
"We are planning on being at Disneyland for their Leap Year, 24-hour celebration. We found out about it and decided to attend and plan my granddaughter's birthday trip early to attend the 24-hour event. I attended the 25-hour event on their 25th anniversary. As a teenager, I stayed the whole 25 hours, riding rides and watching shows. I remember it as if it were yesterday and had a blast. So excited to share the 24-hour event now with my adult children and 4-year-old granddaughter. Something about being at Disneyland at sunrise is magical."
Tess Hunt, 30, Los Angeles:
"My boyfriend, Josh Sussman, and I have been planning on coming since we found out about the 24-hour party. Thanks for continuing to do new things like this 24-hour party for Disney fans. It is a wonderful contribution to every childhood and adulthood alike. The constant maintenance and attention to every single detail is what truly makes it the happiest place on earth. We feel like the happiest people on Earth when we are there."
Catherine Banaag, 21, of San Diego:
"Ever since they announced on the Disneyland Resort Parks blog that they would be handing out commemorative ears to the first 2,000 people in honor of One More Disney Day, I immediately changed my plans to accommodate this objective. Although I'm not too keen on sitting in the same spot in the cold all night, I know that that day will go down in Disneyland history and that is worth something to me. This is my first year having an Annual Pass, so I really wanted to make the most out of it."
