This party is AWESOME! Asisde from all of the things described above MK is EMPTY during the day of the party.
Most people do not go to MK during the day b/c of the limited hours so ALL rides are walk on! What we did is hit MK at open. Walk on EVERY ride, I am not kidding, DS had to go to the bathroom while in Tomorrowland so DH said that I should go hop on Space Mountain while he took him and then he would meet me at the exit. When I got off the ride I met him coming out of the bathroom!
So we get there for rope drop, hit every ride, have at CS lunch and go back to the resort for a long nap! Hit Chef Mickey’s at 5:30 and we are walking into the park at 7 pm. Full and rested and ready to go!
A lot of people think this is a waste of a day off of the pass but If you have a length of stay park hopper it really is a wash! (or a season pass) If I did not go to a park that day I would have wasted the day anyway! This year we are doing the same thing.
