I decided a raining evening would be a perfect time to hit some rides I hadn't been on in a while and it was fantastic! The parks were so empty, and it barely rained after 5pm! I started over in DCA with SR RSR and the ramp line for SRas barely half full! next on to Screamin 3 times (I love that ride!), then Soarin, which was just reopened yesterday after a couple of days down. First, it had a 90 minute wait posted but there was barely a line outside so I figured that must be wrong...it wasn't! They were running just one side and only filling 2 of the three sections! I waited 30 minutes after entering the FP line,and I heard SR that had waited over an hour! Madness....
I the headed across the way and hit Indy, which was virtually empty... The line didn't stop moving until the projection room, and no line outside the temple (there wasn't even a guy for FP and they had that roped off...did they not give them out yesterday?) and while the door was closed when we approached, the lights never came on as we "chose" our path. Everything else seemed to be working through the ride until we approached the loading station and came to a very sharp, sudden stop, quickly followed by all lights coming on. I was so mad we weren't still in the ride...that would have been so cool! We needed up having to get escorted off for the three steps to the platform and then all got a re admit FP.
I heard Splash was open, and I had my raincoat on so I figured why not...? It was literally a walk on and I had the log to myself! It looks great! All the AAs are working, the lights over them are all on and bright...it was fantastic!
Next I hit Matterhorn SR and was on within 5 minutes, then over to ST and then home. They cancelled both Fantasmic! Shows and I think they cancelled the fireworks too...I head people saying they were at 840 but the info board said 925. I didn't hear them on my way home, so I'm guessing they didn't. I was kind of bummed they cancelled F! because it wasn't raining and hadn't really rained much in the late afternoon, but I guess everything was still wet...?
Overall, a trip and the least crowded I've seen it in a long time, and it was a FRIDAY night!!! I love the rain!!!
