    Re: 24 Hours in the Magic Kingdom

    I have seen some twitters from some of our members this morning, with some great photo's. The lines for locker, wooba. The morning was very foggy, castle creepity, couldn't see at first. The "I pulled an all nighter" T's are cool. Food treats expensive. Chocolate covered Mickey apple $9.99. Bet you can't use a snack credit for that. Lines and back-ups at Disneyland worse than the MK. Button for one more day, kinda boring, said that and date. Wonder how much it will be on e-bay. lol. And apparently Lou was interviewed live on Fox this morning at the MK.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    Friends are Gods way of apologizing to us for our families.

    Re: 24 Hours in the Magic Kingdom

    I was there! We arrived around 2pm (had to wait for my floridian cousins to get out of school to join us!). When we arrived it seemed packed, but once inside, nothing had a wait. We walked on almost everything and we did everything we wanted to do (multiple times may i add) by 9pm. We wanted to stay til 6am, but literally had nothing left to do. We Hung out til 11:30 then headed home. There seemed to be a lot more people arriving after the parade was over at 1030, but I personally think this may have been "More More Disney Flop" because I think they were expecting a bigger turnout than they got.

    I can tell you that I didn't wait more than 20 minutes for anything in mk all day. And the place really cleared out after the parade and all. I was surprised ot wasnt a little more crowded.

    Two different surges hit later. There was a massive backup of the monorail from Epcot trying to transfer to MK. During the evening Main Street was so packed they had to open the off stage pathways. They around midnight more people started arriving, guess for the "hours" that nobody was ever there for.

    The only thing that had long lines was Minnie and Mickey meet and greet in their jammies. I kinda understand that photo opt given the "all nighter" theme. Noticed both of them were carrying Duffy.

    Re: 24 Hours in the Magic Kingdom

    I was there, and stayed all 24 hours! It was a lot of fun. For the most part, waits were very manageable. The longest wait was for meeting Mickey and Minnie in their PJs (took me over an hour).

    Re: 24 Hours in the Magic Kingdom

    Hearing the last of the hours were odd. Not enough attractions still open and definitely not enough food venues in the early morning hours nor late, late hours. Seeing the amount of very tipsy people in the photos and videos too. Something you generally don't see at the MK.

    Seems Disney did very well in the T-Shirt department. If, I went, I'd want one too. Clever saying too.

    The pictures of Mickey and Minnie in their pj's is just too cute! I know I am weird, but that would have been a highlight for me! I love that you got to stay the whole time!

    Magic Kingdom seemed to fair better than Disneyland. Did y'all here the madhouse just trying to get to Disneyland for One More Disney Day?

    Glad those that went had fun.
