It sounds like you had a great night... Whoa! To bed at 1:30... I hope you were sleeping in? LOL

I love the feeling of my stomach dropping, you don't? I suppose I should be glad that not everyone likes is to the wait times don't get like TSMM.
Oh no... I love ToT... I just have issues riding it at night... It's totally different then. Give me daylight please.

I love nighttime in the parks. Plus, as an adult, I'm never out that late so it seems special to be out late.

Great ride photos! Nighttime give all the rides a new perspective.

I like the Great Movie Ride but some day I have to get the cowboy scene! I have yet to.
Love the pics throughout the ride! And especially your last pose with Bo.

Photopass photogs!! Come now, you have everything you need for good photos.

That kid behind Mr. DDW on tower. Nice. Cute photos on aerosmith's coaster too!

Ah, the great movie ride. I love that one. I'm such a nerd, it just never gets old for me. Also, those size 8 ruby slippers...wanna share?

PS, I miss the angry bear. I could use one of those super lemon cupcakes, aka the greatest suggestion ever!

Soooo, how did I fall an update behind?????? Oh well, just more to read!!!

Haha, for some reason, even though I stop for tons of photos, I still always end up ahead of everyone else. Disney gives me wings I guess.

Hmmm, I'm not sure "free" and "Disney" will ever really go together, but it's a nice thought.

Photopass really seems to be hit or miss. I've seen some wonderful photos and also some less than wonderful photos. I really thought about it for the next trip, but decided to just get the Attractions+ again.

Isn't there just something extra magical about the parks at night? This is why I refuse the whole "half day" park argument. All the parks are an entirely different experience in the day and the night.

It's in the night especially that I am content with just wandering and observing these beautiful Disney parks. Yeah, I like the rides too, but there's just something so peaceful about the parks at night, even if it's crowded.

I am absolutely requesting the Western version of the Great Movie Ride next time. Why is it so hard to get!!?? Somehow they must recognize someone as a Diser as automatically put them in the Gangster car.

I think it's so great that you have your traditional Bo photo. Now if they'd just put a Stacey out in the parks somewhere...

I love that walk between the Boardwalk and DHS! Your photos are great!
Ahh, the GMR never gets old! Such a must-do! Love the photo of you and Bo-- especially your pink purse! Too cute!

After years and years and more boring years of having the gangster scene in the GMR we struck gold. We were in the park late afternoon for dinner and had time to kill so we decided to hit the GMR. I asked the CM positioned in the doorway that goes to the theater room (is that it's name? that's what I call it ) if they were running both sides. She said they were and to just ask when we got down further.

We ended up having to ask a few different CMs but sure enough we got the bank robbery.

It was like watching a beautiful sunset, like sleeping on clean sheets, like having your husband bring you diamonds. It was a little treat that my mother and I were so grateful for.

So next time you go, ask for it until they get tired of hearing you ask for it.

I literally just hung my head in shame. This is one of the guys i've been trying to get a picture with for years and knew I had to on this trip. Sadly, the meet did not happen. I guess he's just too good for me

That is impressive! I'm actually shocked that you're not a DVC member honestly. You go so often and could probably make great use of it!

Brenda, thanks so much for the shout out! I've got my TR started so swing on by and hopefully I'll get my behind in gear and start cranking out the pictures. It's actually very therapeutic for my post-Disney depression.

I want you to know that I really made an effort to look for Bo (after seeing so many pictures of him from your TRs) when I went to DHS for the conference's private event on Saturday. Alas, Bo was removed since Oscar's Super Service was closed for the event. Was extremely disappointed because I was going to snap a picture of him for you.
