    WorldDisney's post earlier stated that Tower was 120 minutes.

    What I want to know is what happened to Soarin late last night after 11pm. I checked the Mobile Magic App from here in Florida late last night and I couldn't even find Soarin on the list.

    I dont know but it didnt FEEL like 125,000 thats all I can say but with the 24 hour time span who knows how many people came and went.

    And maybe it wasnt as promoted as much but they probably learned their lesson. And One More Disney Day was promoted as a special event because it fell on a leap day and (at the time) people thought maybe it would only happen every 4 years so it was considered more special.

    Now I think A. A lot of people who did OMDD got it out of their system the first time and B. Most probably didnt want to relive it lol. And I think besides just a better organized staff this time people in general were more prepared themselves and there wasnt a mass of people showing up past 8 pm like before. It got busier but much more managable. I think most had already showed up in the afternoon since it seems a lot busier around that time than it was OMDD and not a huge rush like before.

    It's a pleasant surprise to see these reports...maybe if they do this again I will think about going.

    I honestly avoided this one because a) the reports I'd read about OMDD; b) the addition of Grad Nite. I was really expecting it to be just as chaotic as OMDD so I stayed away.

    I stayed away from it because I didn't have the money for the gas (in Florida, not California. Prices are about the same, but distance is vastly different.) And I'm not as young as I used to be. Ten+ years ago I was able to do a day trip, crowd weave like a running back heading for the end zone, could get from Screamin to Space in about 5 minutes (I think) and still not be hurtin the next day. Those days are over.

    I had work, so I didn't get a chance to go. Disney overnight is awesome! One More Disney Day was a madhouse, and I'm glad they learned from it to make this one better.
