The Queue at Disneyland is already 1000’s of guests strong here is just a small portion of the queue of the brave souls who have been camping out since 10pm (PST):

WDW Update:
Seems all is quiet on the Eastern front, unlike the insane lines that have formed at Disneyland Walt Disney World seems very quiet indeed…. Maybe it is the draw of FREE MouseEars at Disneyland that has caused the madness there?! 4.58 am (EST)

And this Dear friends is where I must leave you for now but I hope you have fun following the opening hours of this really special event. Going to leave you with epic split screen of WDW and Disneyland:

Look forward to filling in the Gaps tomorrow and sharing with you all some of the special moments in the parks. To all of you out there in the Parks have fun and try not to fall asleep 😉

Check this page throughout the day where I will be keeping you up to date on the festivities (Currently at work so trying my best to update as much as I can but will have to stop for sleep as I have a big meeting tomorrow! But rest assured Nick is on the case and he will still be sending hourly photo updates and I will add some highlights to this feed tomorrow from the action.)
