JC @ WDW Extra Magical Day 16
What an extra magical day we had at the MK!!! Besides riding/seeing most of our favorites (PoTC, HM, Buzz, TTA, CoP, Hall of Presidents, Tiki Birds, Philharmagic) we saw Space Mountain with the lights on!!! We were on the TTA (WED Way) at 4:24 PM. As we approached SM I told the DW that something was wrong and there should not be such bright lights ahead. We got to see the lift area and SM with all the very bright working lights on. Had no idea why, but who cares? I got a couple of fuzzy pics of SM, which I will post later. Stayed on TTA to try to get better pics the next time thru, but by the time we got back to SM the ride was back to normal--rats, er mice!!! Oh well, seeing SM once with the lights on was probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
We also witnessed the flag lowering ceremony at 5 PM for the first time. What a moving experience!!! We left the MK after the ceremony as the DW was getting tired. All in all, the best 6 hours we have ever spent at the MK.
