    Red Face Anyone else remember Mickey & friends singing at closing time?

    I seem to remember way back when I was a little kid, the characters singing the Mickey Mouse club theme song at closing time over the loud speakers on Main St. When and why did this stop??? It always felt like the best bittersweet lullaby as you left the park. "M-I-C, see you real you." Anyone else recall this happening?

    I remember hearing it in the World of Disney Store at closing...would be beautiful if they did this at closing now...

    At the trams theres a guy that sings it before it stops to drop the guest off to return to the car

    Be great if it returned. Not sure if I remember it (in the park) since I have it on cd.

    I remember this too!

    For some reason I still feel like they do this at Magic Kingdom in WDW? I swear I remember hearing this not too long ago but I'm not too sure which park.

    The Magic Kingdom at WDW has a small show known as the "Goodnight Kiss" that they play at closing time. It's pretty popular with those that know about it, and I think it's a really nice way to end the night.

    Maybe Disneyland could do something like that?

    I think they brought it back for the 50th. I seem to remember getting really excited a few years ago because it reminded me of my childhood. Every time it comes up on my iPod it makes me tear up a little. I'd love it if they played it every night!

    "No fear have ye of evil curses, says you? Properly warned ye be, says I. Who knows when that evil curse will strike the greedy beholders of this bewitched treasure?"

    "Perhaps ye knows too much. Ye've seen the cursed treasure, ye know where it be hidden. Now, proceed at yer own risk. These be the last friendly words ye'll hear. Ye may not survive to pass this way again."

    Yeah they were doing it as of a couple years ago. I guess that could've been for the 50th. There was another edited version they'd stuck with that I didn't even realize was gone now.

    I think every Disney park should have a "Kiss Goodnight" moment. Especially parks that don't have any nighttime spectaculars, (DAK, WDS, DHS on many nights.)

[But I'm pretty good with the information, if I do say so myself. And you can hit me all you want with Walt Disney World.])
