[QUOTE=Dana;1136135]I don’t think they could cut the park hours back any more then they have without cutting fireworks, parades and other stuff people will feel robbed if they missed.[/QUOTE]
I was just thinking back about 20+ years ago when the MK ( for ex.) was only open late on a Friday or Sat. When we first started going, it closed every night at 7PM…except the weekend or special days…
You are right that now people wouldn’t “stand” for this, but I do remembering planning to be there at least one night that it was open until later for the evening parade and fireworks. We planned around the hours the parks were projected to be open.
I actually think it made people plan to be there more days just to be sure that Illuminations and MK fireworks were “happening”.
It sure is nice now, though to know we aren’t forced out at 7PM from the MK at least…do they ever even close the MK at 7PM? It hasn’t when we have been there for years…Epcot at 8 I think but not the MK…I can’t remember what time DHS closes regularly…(and I know AK isn’t open late)
