    A few hours at DCA in the evening...RSR at night Video

    I had a few hours to spare before meeting friends so I decided to do single rider at RSR. It started to sprinkle a bit while waiting in line but it was a good 30 minute wait in the single rider line. I had never done RSR at night and it was a new experience for me. Sorry for the screaming...someone was having fun next to me



    Then I walked Radiator Springs a bit.

    I had a fast pass to Tower so I jumped on that and there was an interesting story there. I was put in a car with a bunch of girls from a High School Dance Team of some sort. They were all wearing matching sweaters.

    So we get loaded onto the ride and it begins. We go down the first drop then to the first opening of the doors and the ride stops abruptly. We are slowly lowered down and the doors open and Cliff, the Bellhop opens the doors...points to the three girls sitting in the last row, behind me and says " you three, get off" just like that! The whole car turns towards them and they are like "why what did we do."

    WELLLL...after they were escorted off the ride, Cliff explains to the rest of us why they were asked off and why the ride was stopped. During the first fall, he says, they were all lifting their legs like over their head. I don't know HOW they could do that but he said "we have cameras and can see what you are all doing. For safety, PLEASE KEEP YOUR FEET ON THE GROUND"

    After he explained, the ride started again and the rest of the people in the car were pretty cool about it and pretty cool to Cliff. I thought Cliff handled it pretty well and I used the opportunity to give him a compliment at the Guest Services.

    In all my years riding that ride, that has never happened to me....first time for everything!

    Anyway, moving on...

    Then I went to DTD and took a glimpse at the skating rink. I will be taking the boy there next weekend but it looked like fun, if not to crowded. In fact there weren't many people skating at all.

    On the way to the car...I noticed these two little guys peeking out from the brush...Disney Kitties! Well their glowing eyes anyway. I couldn't get close enough as they started to run away. One was a Tuxedo (black and white) and the other was a Calico. They looked well fed and happy.

    Thanks for the TR!

    Interesting tidbit about no one ice skating. While I expect that will pick up as the season progresses, it doesn't look at this point like that has been the best idea Disney has had...of course with the prices they're charging...

    Anyway, sounds like you had a good time! And an interesting ToT experience to boot!

    Prices for ice skating was per person $15 for an hour plus $3 shoe rental. Only Toddlers get to skate for free. So that's $18 total per person for an hour. I haven't been ice skating before so I really wouldn't know what to compare it to but that doesn't sound to bad?

    What a cool trip report! RSR is beautiful at night.

    RE: the skating: it wasn't crowded when I saw it either. I wonder if the combination of the price/location/helmet requirement is deterring people.

    In comparison, the holiday ice rink in Downtown LA is $8 (including skate rental), Ice in Santa Monica is $12 (again, with skate rental) and Anaheim Ice is $12 (ditto)...and all of those others give you longer sessions (Santa Monica ICE is actually unlimited time!).

    Actually, these were very annoying girls and they really got embarrassed when they were told to leave. Their friends were sitting next to me and were super embarrassed to.
    The CM's give out the safety rules for a reason!
