    Great photos! One of our favourite "nighttime" rides is ToT! Nothing like walking around DHS at night!

    Hi Brenda!! Just returned home from Disney and catching up on your TR!

    So funny that you saw the mystic seer fortune telling box because I just saw it for the first time a few nights ago as well! I took a picture of it and it's buried somewhere in my camera's memory cards but I'll try to find it! :goodvibes

    Looks like it was a great night for a walk. I just love the parks at night! Tower of Terror would have been my first choice also.

    Out of curiousity, how long does the walk from the Boardwalk to Hollywood Studios take?

    Your bend and snap photo is too funny!

    You are very welcome! Thanks for liking them! :laughing: I have more than a few photos from that walk between the Epcot resorts and DHS!

    True dat! (my street talk there)

    Very good point D~! I landed on that same realization not too long ago when I read Nermal9 (Jen's) AK update here and thought whoa! I've never seen AK after dark! Now I really want to but that means another winter trip during a busier time for extended park hours.

    I love the feeling of my stomach dropping, you don't? :rolleyes2 I suppose I should be glad that not everyone likes is to the wait times don't get like TSMM.

    I love the late night hours at the parks!

    Oh, that would be so fun if that was an original prop! William Shatner would have touched it! A few days later when we were on the ride I asked one of the CM about it and they had no clue what it was. Oh well.

    Thanks Emily! There were a few PP pics that were blurry. I'd never had that happen before so it was odd. At least there were only a few.

    Hi Trish! Thanks! I'm a Vegas lover for certain. In fact, that's one of the reasons I like it - all the pretty lights. I'll be there in a few weeks. Business, not too much pleasure!)

    Thank you! DHS is one of my favorite parks anyway but at night it's so perfect.

    Oh my gosh!! The "To Serve Man" episode was so great! Very cheesy with the mind reading and all and at the end oh the drama when it was revealed their true intentions! Now you have me on a mission to find other relics of the show. I'm going to have to see if the CA version has some of the same things. Thanks for sharing that intel! :thumbsup2

    Thanks wii!! :)

    The Monsters U topiary is out front where they used to have the Sorcerer Mickey and the brooms. Here's a visual. Of course, we are in it!

    Ha ha! Is Mark behind you on purpose?

    I would LOVE to ride a few rides with you. You pick and I'm there. In fact, the morning of breakfast I think this may work out! ;)

    Hi Kelli! Well, thank you, I like pink better on other people but I do like the color.

    I HAD to go on ToT. My all-time favorite! :thumbsup2

    Hey there Camille! Can you believe I never wore pink until a few years ago? Not that it looks good on a ginger but I like it because it is bold and fun! Whenever we eventually meet up I'll be sure to be decked out in pink - just so you recognize me!!

    Have you had breakfast at G Flo Café? That is one of my favorite breakfasts at WDW - next to Kona. We had a good dinner at GFC last summer so I do like other meals there. My DH also ordered that burger last summer and really liked it. In fact, if you have any free time you can read my DR from last summer at GFC here.

    Now that you mention In/Out, I am a big fan of their fresh and tasty burgers (raw onion please) but not a fan of the fries. I'm in the minority I know! Even though we have In/Out all over, I don't go often. It's our road trip food when we go to Vegas more than anything because they have one half way between our house and Vegas.

    Ha ha ha! MGM Studios!! :lmao: The rest of the evening coming up.

    Hi Linda! And for another DHS lover, the final part coming up shortly! :)

    Thanks Jo! You are too sweet! We certainly enjoyed our evening. :)

    Thanks Phil! I'm glad you mentioned those props. Em's pointed them out but I've never really paid attention. I need to check them out next time. I'm sure they all have some significance.

    Thank you Jacquie. I love the view from the drop window at night. It's a whole different perspective!

    Welcome back Dave! I've seen your preview photos and they are amazing. I hope you don't mind me giving you a shout out here for the MOST AMAZING photo of the castle with Hallowishes fireworks here. Stunning!

    What a coincidence! I want to see your photo since mine was jacked up from having to move on out of the room so quickly. (That and I have no clue how to use a camera like you!)

    Hi Annie! That park at night is particularly fabulous. It's about a 15 minute walk from the Epcot resorts to DHS. I would rather walk than take the boat.

    I'm glad you liked our bend and snap! ;)

    Thanks Sarah! I especially like the hat with the twinkly lights. Of course the billboard type signs all lit up on Hollywood and Sunset Blvds are pretty awesome too!

    Awww thank you!

    I like your buffet logic. Makes sense to me! Just enough healthy to feel good and just enough cheats to declare, "I'm on vacation!"

    Burgers at Whole Foods? :confused3 Never heard of that. I believe we've had sandwiches but not a grille. Brilliant idea if you ask me!

    Monday August 19, 2013: Day 4, Part 5



    A quick update to finish off our evening. I'm short on words this late at night but not light on photos!

    So.. we were enjoying EMH at DHS.

    It was nearly midnight and we had time for one more ride and it happened to be The Great Movie Ride with the gangster scene of course. Give me some bank robberies people!!

    It was after park close by the time we exited… not much we could do but comply and move along. I had to give Bo some attention before we left.

    We said our good-byes to Mr. DDW and hope that perhaps another meet up is in our future! Em and I took the bus back to AKL. We were seated next to two young ladies that were cousins who were very friendly and chatty. One of them was a DVC owner – at 21!! I was impressed.

    Nothing newsworthy happened the rest of the evening unless you call watching Conan interesting. We were nodding off by 1:30am.

    We're finally through Day 4 folks!

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

    Oh no... I love ToT... I just have issues riding it at night... It's totally different then. Give me daylight please. :thumbsup2

    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. pixiedust:

    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. :confused3

    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... :p

    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 :confused3) 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. :thumbsup2

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