Disney After Hours (DO IT)

Wednesday was our rest day.  We visited The Florida Mall and that was about it!  Walked around, didn't buy much of anything.  We stopped by Carlos' Bake Shop (Cake Boss!) to get some (expensive) goodies.  They were OK, not anything special.  The kids said my cupcakes and cookies were better. Ha.

  
Thursday was our final day.  We had tickets to Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom, so we knew it was going to be a very late night.  We went to Epcot for a few hours to get a few more rides in.  We made sure to ride Spaceship Earth one last time... and visit Club Cool again before it all goes away.  






About 5:30 we headed over to Magic Kingdom for the event we had all been waiting for:  Disney After Hours.  We got our wrist bands and managed to grab a few Fastpasses to kill some time.  We got a good spot for Happily Ever After.  We split up - Clint and Valerie went one way and Veronica and I went another.  It was a sold out night, which last year's was also, but it was obviously much more crowded than the previous two DAH events we've attended.  Still, it was very manageable.  The longest waits were for Mine Train, Pan, and Big Thunder.  Everything else was practically walk on.  Still, there wasn't that feel of being in an empty Magic Kindom like before.  There were people around, not many, but you were never alone.  We ate our share of ice cream and drinks!!  If you have the chance to do DAH, do it at least once.  If they keep increasing ticket prices (heard they were going up?) along with the number of tickets sold, it may not be worth it...    If it stays as it is, I'd likely do it again.

Just to give an idea... this is what we did in 3 hours.

We stayed until The Kiss Goodnight....  said our goodbyes... shed some tears.... and it was time to go.  Who knows when we'll be back because with Valerie being in marching band next year there is a lot of unknowns about her schedule.  











Until next time.......
