Coming to this site has me strolling down memory lane. I was just wondering if anyone has had some of the experiences we had during our 07’ July 4th trip.
It was a couple of days before the 4th and the Extra Magic Hours that evening were for the MK. We got there and ate and watched the fireworks and then the crowds began to die down. We got our wrist-bands and were told that Extra Magic Hours would go till 1am or 2am (I can’t remember wich one but I believe it was 2am). By Midnight the park was practically empty. My wife and I agreed to not push the kids (6 and 4), but just go till they couldn’t go anymore or started getting grumpy, but when they showed the signs of it being to much we would leave. Those last few hours were incredible. The kids stayed awake and in INCREDIBLE moods. The six year old and I rode Splash Mountain about 5 times and we literally did EVERYTHING at MK in those few hours…which basically cleared a whole day or two agenda I had made and made the rest of the trip easy b/c we knew we were going to get to do everything we planned.
We closed the park. Got on the bus. The kids fell asleep. Got them to the room where they still were out and we all slept to 11am the next morning…rested and ready to go. And feeling like we got a 1 up on everyone else there.
