Since I only get to go every 2 or 3 months, I always get there right at opening and leave at closing. I need to make sure I get my fill (or as much as possible) to hold me over until my next trip! Love having my Premium AP though, since I know that if I ever get those extreme urges (which if I had it my way, I would satisfy every week,lol) I can take a weekend trip whenever I want with no worries!
I never want to leave, and I usually say I'm not staying late but then I stay late. Usually before fireworks, due to the drive. I usually don't get there too early - I enjoy sleeping in too much!
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
Even though our last day just feels kind of sad, I would stay past closing but my husband usually makes us leave earlier. If there are fireworks that night, though, he knows he can't tear me away until after them. He made us leave before closing again last trip but he really has no excuse. He used to say it was because he had to drive the 6 hr. drive home (he never lets me drive). Now our two oldest kids have drivers licenses, so we could get home with each of the drivers driving only 1-1/2 hours. But he insists on doing all the driving.
I always stay in walking distance, so I like to be there as long as I possibly can !!
I wish Disney offered an "after hours" tour where you get to dive with the scuba divers to retrieve stuff from Nemos subs, and walk the Matterhorn track, and all that after-hours stuff. Hell, I'd even love to steam-clean main street !
