  • I was there 21 of the 24 hours on the One More Disney Day!! I hope they do it again next leap day!! It had been since 1977 and my grad night since I was at the park until 6am. Loved seeing the sun rise over the castle!!

  • The one in Disneyland is actually a time “castle.” ;0) but same idea.

  • I never knew there was a time capsule in DCA. I knew there was one in Disneyland and I believe after they opened that one up they put another one in Disneyland too right?

    • Sean – On July 17, 1995, a time capsule was buried in the Sleeping Beauty Castle forecourt containing items that would be revealed on the 80th anniversary of Disneyland park.

  • I was their too had a great time stayed late.

  • I was there for One More Disney Day. What a crazy, Crazy, CRAZY event, but I am so glad I was a part of it. Thank you!
