    Favorite Ride Times?

    So we all have our favorite rides, but what is your favorite time to ride said ride? Do you love Splash Mountain? When is the best time to ride it in your opinion? How about Big Thunder? Why is that the best time? Share your wisdom here.

    Personally, I love riding Splash Mountain a few times in the last 30 minutes the park is open. Lines are always short and many empty logs so it feels more private. Like the ride is all yours.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    My favorite experience was riding the Matterhorn while the fireworks were going on (the old fireworks). Coming to the outside parts of the ride seeing a sky full of fireworks...very cool.

    I don't care for the current fireworks show. There are a number of reasons I feel this way.

    Because of this, for the first time, I was walking across the park during the show and was really struck by how the park looks with EVERYBODY standing still and staring at the fireworks. It is like an episode of the Twighlight Zone Television show. EVERYBODY is just standing still and staring towards the fireworks show! It is actually a little off-putting!

    I like to go on Splash Mountain at night. Not quite sure but I think it is a lot more fun.

    Big Thunder during the fireworks. It's incredible.

    I'm also a fan of Space as the last ride of the night, but that stems from old family tradition.

    I've never done Matterhorn during fireworks before, though it sounds like it would be awesome.

    That's one of our favorites to do. Love watching them from the 2nd lift hill.

    Haunted Mansion first thing in the morning is always really neet. It's so personal and scary. If your lucky you'll only ride with just you and the CM opperating the elevator.

    Right after that Splash Mountain. No one wants to ride that early in the morning. It's too cold. But the empty logs in front and back of me are always pretty inviting.

    I usually go on the fantasyland rides at night after the fireworks. I like how it looks at night.
