Well folks it is that magical time of year when Fantasmic is dark and the rivers of America are restored to it's former nighttime glory of days gone by before the circus came to town. While I know many people love the show of Fantasmic, you have got to admit taking a nighttime paddle wheel excursion, or a stroll in New Orleans square among the banks of the river is so magical without the madness that Fantasmic brings to this area of the park.
Not having all the areas roped off and blankets hording spots amongs the river hours in advance of the show and enjoying the peacefulness of the river while watching the ducks swimming in the water is just pure magic! I really urge people to take advantage of this special rare time and enjoy all it has to offer especially when the park is open so late! Taking the last voyage of the night at 11pm on the MarkTwain river boat is incredible, so romantic, so peaceful, enjoy it while it lasts!
