    I was there that day. They made us walk all the way around to the other side of Disneyland and enter through Downtown Disney. No one knew what was going on and no one was letting anyone know. The union protesters standing at the entrance with a "Shame on Disney Grand Hotel" sign just picked the worst day to protest because I heard a few people blame them.
