It is being estimated that hundreds of would-be park goers were turned away from Disneyland Saturday. That's because Walt's original park reached maximum capacity, KTTV reported.

But why was there a rush to get to see Mickey and the gang?

Many believe it was because it was one of the last opportunities for passholders to use their annual passes before the summer blackout dates kicked in to effect, KTTV reported.

Popular rides showed how crowded the parks really were with Space Mountain and Splash Mountain logging three-hour wait lines.

Park officials also suggested ridesharing for those brave thrill seekers trying to get to the parks throughout the weekend.
