    A Perfect Moment

    I'll have a fuller trip report later; I'm waiting for the film to come back, and will probably just put everything in html and link to it. In short, it was a blast.

    On Saturday morning, we had a singular experience. I had mistakenly set the clock wrong the night before; and this led to our getting up an hour early (and not realizing it until we were walking through the lobby).

    So we walked into the plaza at 6 am.

    Imagine it. We're the only guests there. It's totally quiet. No background music. Only the sound of the birds. It's about 63, there's a soft gentle breeze, everything is completely tranquil.

    It's not something you'd normally expect to see; but it sure was nice.

    Wow, Wotan, moments like that really don't happen often.

    I have a friend who used to work for DL maintenance and he once gave me a sort of backstage tour off-hours, so he and I were in the park at 4 or 5 in the morning. It was really surreal to be there on a foggy, quiet morning with no one around except janitorial staff. I'll never forget it!

    WOW, sounds really wonderful, have seen the park after closing with no one in it, also very peaceful, but just a bit eery! Glad you had a special moment that most people don't get to experience!
    Mom, remember, it's not what a person is like on the outside that counts,
    it's what they are like in their HEART!

    I think it was RU42 that posted a picture of Rivers of America just before the break of dawn. Makes me want to be there.

    One early morning "Perfect Moment" I had was standing in front of the castle, with only Early Entry people around. It was awesome.
