Disney is suffering a bad spell of congestion.

The crush of holiday visitors forced Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif., to suspend ticket sales Thursday for the third time this week. The park took the action in the morning, planning to resume sales. But sales still were halted at dusk.The amusement park also stopped selling tickets Wednesday and on Christmas Day, spokesman Tom Brocato said.This is the first time it has done this in four years.

Annual pass holders were allowed entrance.At Disney’s Magic Kingdom in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., visitors twice this week–again on Christmas and on Wednesday–found the parking lot filled to capacity.The lot has 13,000 spaces.

“On Christmas, the lot was full for about an hour, and guests either went home or drove around until they found spaces,” spokeswoman Veronica Clemons said. “The doors to the park were never closed.”
