Some people might call these folks wacky, crazed or just plain nuts. But we’ll just call them some of Disneyland’s most devoted fans.

Folks who are willing to get up before dawn, drive to the park and stand in line for an hour waiting for Disneyland to open so they can … stand in another line. This time to get a wristband, to come back later and, you guessed it, stand in another line. All for the privilege of buying one single candy cane for $12.99.
