ANAHEIM (CBSLA) — Disneyland visitors are noticing something a little unusual at the popular theme park — wait times for many rides are less than 30 minutes.

For some visitors, the cost was to blame for the apparent lack of people. Others thought maybe they just lucked out in timing their trip just after the park’s Fourth of July celebration. And some believed the area’s recent earthquakes were keeping the crowd’s away.
“It might have scared people out of here, I don’t know,” park visitor Sydnie Gustke said. “It jolted us a little bit.”READ MORE: Biden Ramps Up Vaccine Push With New Rules For Federal Workers And Call For $100 Payments
But Disney said the park isn’t quieter at all, stating that the shorter lines and wait times were intentional.
