    WOW, what an evening I've just had!

    We arrived at MK just in time to see the wishes fireworks, and then going against the crowds went straight into Adventureland. Onto the Jungle Cruise for a hilarious night time ride with Nick, great jokes?? Then onto Magic Carpets and Pirates. Am I mad by thinking Pirates is better done at night? No queues for any of the rides and not many people about - all seem to be going. Into Frontierland and catch the Main Street Electrical Parade. I first saw this 20 years ago, but my sons hadn't ever seen it. Really great tune to get in your head...... Decided not to get soaked on splash mountain as was a bit chilly so onto the ghosts in Haunted Mansion.
    :unsure:
    Through into Fantasyland, bit of a queue for Peter Pan, so got fast passes and while we waited went on Snow White's Scary Adventure, Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Tea Cups, Dumbo, Barnstormer and It's a Small World. My sons are 15 & 14 and I was amazed they wanted to ride all these, and enjoyed them!

    Back to Peter Pan and now no queue so rode my favourite Fantasyland ride before walking through the castle. Park now nearly empty and it was amazing walking down Main Street without a crush.

    Straight onto a bus and back to resort. A action packed evening with many memories attached.

    Happy Easter!

    Now where shall we go today?

    Happy Easter MM :)

    It sounds like you are having a brilliant time :D

    I love the Main Street Electrical Parade it's much better than Specttomagic in my opinion :yes:

    So, have you decided where you are going today :)

    i agree about POTC, much better to ride it at night, adds to the atmosphere on the way in. Hope the crowds stay light !

    One of my all-time favorite feelings :) I love walking down main street when it's quiet and empty :)
