If you can enter the park at 4pm and the party starts at 7pm, how do they make sure non party people leave?

People with party tickets are issued wristbands, and the back of their MNSSHP tickets are marked (so they can't be re-used by someone else), and you have to show your wristband to ride rides or see the shows. There are also cast members around looking for people without wristbands to make sure they aren't just hanging out in the park.

Just a tip

Wear short sleeves or pull your sleeves up while at the special events. Last year during the Christmas Party CM had to keep asking people to raise their hands while they were walking to see if everyone had wrist bands. :mickey:

I'll admit I never thought that the CMs would be able to get all of the non-party participants out of the park for the MNNSHP. But I was truly impressed at how smoothly this process went! As long as your bracelet is visible, you're good to go! And the ones who had to leave, were gently ushered from the park, and without incident (that I could see).

It's beautiful really.

It's a corral system. Like cattle.

They start with people in between each land and pathway. As you leave each land, they will check for bands. If you don't have a band, they will steer you towards the front.

Let's say you are in Fantasyland and you move to Liberty Square. You won't be able to go back into Fantasyland because the CM's will check for a band. But you can't enter Frontierland either because you don't have a band. The shops won't let you and the rides won't let you in so you are going to go to Main Street. If you tried to cut through the Hub to say, Tomorrowland, you couldn't because the CM's on the bridge are checking for bands. So, you have to walk towards the exit. As you walk down Main Street and try to enter the Emporium, there will CM's at EVERY door, checking for bands. No band, no entrance to the store. You can try to stay on Main Street, but they do a "sweep," they line up CM's in a line ACROSS the street and if you don't have a band, they tell you to walk towards the exit. They will do that about 3 times, and 2 times right before parade.

It's pretty effective and only a few strays are left behind, but once spotted without a band, they are literally escorted out of the park by a manager or security.

It only takes about an hour to clear the entire park of day guests. I love watching it. Now I get to be a part of it.

As for without incident......you're not on Main Street when they are yelling at us because they want to go shopping. Or why did they not know the park was closing (they'd have to deaf, blind and dumb not to know....it's painfully obvious...literally).
