    I'm not postive, but I thought someone had mentioned the latest FP time being before 5:00. I think it had something to do with the ride breaking down so much that they left a cushion of time? :confused3

    We were just at DL last weekend and rode the Jungle Cruise at night and it was really different (a lot less "cheesy", as my hubby said, lol).

    Jungle Cruise!! Esp if you can do a day and night ride in the same day to draw on comparisons it's really cool!!

    What does the bolded part mean? There's more than one side to the Matterhorn? Good grief, I'll never learn everything I need to know in the next two weeks. These boards are a wealth of information!

    There are 2 sides, Fantasyland and Tomorrowland. I prefer the FL side because I think FL is so pretty all lit up. If your facing the entrance to the Matterhorn, go to the right side line if its open.

    I would think almost all rides that are outside would be worth going on at night if you never have, because it's a different perspective. Some good ones I haven't seen mentioned are the Finding Nemo Subs, Splash Mt, the Train, and the Monorail (Monorail give you a great view of much of the park at night). Dumbo is probably good too, but I don't know if I've been on it at night.

    My favorites are :

    Big Thunder ( which I will miss SO much on our trip :( )
    Matterhorn
    Nemo subs
    Haunted mansion ( I know it's indoors but the house seems so much more intimidating at night )
    It's a small world
    Monorail trip
    Screaming over California

    We are hoping to do Splash Mountain for the first time at night this trip if it's warm enough.

    Storybook Canal Boats are a) really pretty at night, and b) it's really cute when it's late a night because the ducks roost on the miniature London island and it looks like the city is being attacked by mutant killer ducks.

    Matterhorn at night is pretty because you get a view of the Nemo ride with the water objects all lit up.
