Hey everyone! I'm back from 6 great days at WDW and I have some GREAT empty park pictures. I stayed at MK almost 2 hours after it closed to get some great shots. I'm currently uploading them, so expect them up on here by sometime tomorrow!

Glad you had a great trip! Do they just let you stay in the parks after it closes? I'll have to try to get some pics that way on our next trip - not sure when it will be, though.

Eagerly awaiting your pictures Metsfan11.

When you stayed after closing for some picture taking were you using Disney transportation? How was that?

If not...did you have to walk through the parking lot or were the trams still running? I am curious for safety issues.

Thanks!

Okay, about staying in the parks after closing.

I don't mean to be a downer and I only post this because it something one of my CM friends complains about a lot. Please don't linger in the parks hours after closing. Don't aim to be the last one out of the park. Mainly because the CM's are not allowed to go home until the park is closed and clear of people. The park may close, and their shift officially end at one time.... but they are not allowed to leave until the park is cleared. This holds up a good many CM's when people hang around like this. I know it is really fun to stay late, but if the park has closed please don't purposely hold up all the CM's on closing shift.... The busdrivers also have to be on standby until all is clear.

Wow.. sorry for the negative post. I only post out of concern for a friend of mine and please don't flame me. I swear!! I will never be nagative again!

Thanks for the tip, hopefully the CM's are getting some OT for the extra time spent?
I'll try to remember that next time..but, then again..if the emporium is open...Hummmm

I'm just about to get grinding on getting these up on the net (rough week).

About staying after, I stayed late at MK and Epcot. At MK, Wishes and park close were both at 10, and so by 10:30 I was at the hub away from MOST of the crowds. It was hard to believe that SOOO many people were there as it was getting close to 11, so I was really surprised. At about 11:30, I finally started to get that "empty" feeling. Before leaving the park at about 12, I was not the last one, but probably in the last 20 guests in the park. Don't worry, these great pictures will be up VERY soon.

As for Epcot, I went for evening EMH on our last night, and I was determined to be the LAST one out (my logic was that I have all night at home to sleep, why do it now?). EMH ended at 12, so when I got out of the American Adventure, I took a lovely and extremely peaceful walk around the lagoon for about a half hour. I was the ONLY one walking and it was great being able to have my last moment alone with my favorite place in the world. By 12, I made it over to Test Track for a quick walk on ride, then I wandered over to the fountain in the center of Future World. At about 12:30 I was the only person I could see near the fountain and Spaceship Earth (not even CM's). I had to pull myself away, and eventually left and went to the bus lines.

For those concerned about transportation, DON'T WORRY!!! There were A LOT of buses running, and when I got out of MK there was a HUGE line for CBR.

At Epcot, there was a bus already there that was waiting to be filled, and after about 5 minutes we were on our way.

It was a great experience being able to stay after and get a great view of the park, and hopefully I'll get those images up in the next hour or so. See ya then!
