    Well, I picked Illuminations from the list and then got to thinking.............perhaps I should have selected "other" for the Adventurer's Club. Kongaloosh!!!

    I love all those nighttime things, but I chose "other" for just the ambiance of WDW at night. The darkness just takes the magic to a new level. The lights, the sounds, and even the smells (especially on Main Street in the MK) make WDW an experience second to none. I even like riding the Monorail and buses better at night. I wonder what the AK would be like at night? Scary?

    Hey Lou, how come you didn't have the Main Street Electrical Parade?

    (Lou asks himself since that was his favorite nighttime parade)

    i've only been to pleasure island once --when on honeymoon in '97 and we went to the comedy club and mannequins i can't recall ever hearing of the adventurers club---whats the theme there,or what is it like?............talking about pleasure island i had an unbelievable experience there by the way.....my wife and i were staying at the holiday inn sunspree and we took a cab up to downtown disney and went exploring....anyway i went to buy a beer and was asked for ID ...anyway i was 26 years old but the server needed an ID which i didn't have so i went back to the taxi lot-grabbed a cab and went back to the hotel and picked up my passport(i thought it was worth the effort as we were on honeymoon)and returned with my wife and my own passports....a couple of hours later and we were ready to go home so we proceeded to the taxi lot and a hispanic guy directed us to his cab.we jumped in and the guy walked around to the drivers side when suddenly the door opened and a big guy with a beard and moustache,longish hair and an attitude started to shout and argue with this little guy about how he was stealing his fare!!! my wife and i were there for our first trip and we were a little scared ..anyway these guys just about came to blows--- but then in came a state trooper(from no-where as well) on his motorbike and diffused the situation while we got out and boarded another cab.....never again i tell you... i thought i had joined one of those mad movies you watch now and again ----you just wouldn't imagine that could happen at disney especially for a 7 dollar fare!!!.......... it seemed that the small guy was not a designated or authorised disney patron and was chancing his luck!!what a night that was. i kid you not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's amazing what they can do with Audio-Animitronics nowadays!!!!

    BTW-I voted for Fantasmic since I have never been to the Adventurers Club and Lou neglicted to include the MSEP on the voting list.

    Oh my!!! You must be careful of independent taxi drivers. They have been known to take unsuspecting tourists every which way to make a few extra dollars at WDW. For that matter, the company drivers do that too sometimes. It is always best to ask what the approximate fare will be before s/he starts the meter.

    There is a chance you and your bride could be in the next Disney blockbuster movie--Pirates of Pleasure Island!!! Congratulations by the way.

    EPCOT Man,

    Sorry you had to see "Animitronics gone bad". I haven't seen that here in your fine country - not even at Madame Toussad's!.

    Great place to Honeymoon though. My wife and I did 15 years ago in Disney World (MGM had just opened that same summer - it was so crowded we couldn't get in! and AK didn't exist yet)!

    Anyway - favorite nightime activity is riding Splash Mountain while the fire works are going off!

    Make sure you have a Guiness for me at the Rose and Crown - Cheers!

    Pipper
