    I second this! Even standing out front at night is awesome.

    Tea cups
    astro orbiter
    agree with many others.

    Check out snow whitesfountain


    May I suggest coming back your 1st day at night for entertainment. Then you can focus on rides your whole night while crowds are occupied.

    I agree. Plus, your eyes are already adjusted to the dark so you can see everything better.

    At Disneyland: Big Thunder, Jungle Cruise, and Splash (during Fantasmic).

    At DCA: RSR (and all of Cars Land at night. I want to live there.) Plus, I have to give a nod to Goofy's Sky School. It's brief, but the elevated view of Paradise Pier is amazing.

    Re: Best rides at night

    By sheer dumb luck I rode Thunder Mountain during the fireworks show one night. That was incredible... every time we hit the outdoor sections there were fireworks exploding. By far the best night ride experience I've had. I also like:


    • The teacups. It's so beautifully lit at night.
    • The lagoon area behind Thunder Mountain and just below the Ranch, the one with the leftover tunnel from the old Mine Train ride. Nice place to relax in the evening.
    • Now that I think about it, I really just enjoy strolling through the different lands because they're all so wonderfully lit. Especially New Orleans Square, Frontierland and Adventureland.
    • If you could time warp back to the early 80s, Tomorrowland was AWESOME at night. So much energy and motion from the Rocket Jets, PeopleMover and cheesy 80s cover bands.

    BMRR, Matterhorn, and Splash are all fun at night because they turn a bit, only a little, into space mountain as you can't see what's coming as much. They also offer great views.

    Re: Best rides at night

    The last year of the original BTMRR I rode it during the New Year's Eve fireworks. I intend to do that again.

    I like Jungle Cruise at night, but after DCA closes and its search lights are turned off (it spoils the "out in the jungle at night" feeling).

    I don't think they let you do that on GRR anymore, sadly. Last time we were there, they made us: get out, go back up the stairs, around the queue, hop back on the boat, buckle up quickly, etc. each time we wanted to ride. Plus, the loading CM was, how shall we say this..., not too friendly when my mom couldn't find her belt buckle quickly enough and so they had to halt the other empty rafts. That got old really fast so we only able to ride it twice before calling it quits.

    There was no one in line either when we were going on GRR. And we were virtually the only ones on the ride. But that's for another story...


    I do agree, though, that those rides are amazing at night!
