    How Many Hours Did You Stay on 7/17?

    22 hours straight for us.

    We arrived at 10:30pm on 7/16, and didn't make it to the taxi at DtD until 8:30 on 7/17. (We started at DL until closing on Saturday, sang "Happy Birthday", then headed directly to the line-up.)

    Frodo Potter and I were awake the whole time - not even a snooze. I'm more of a zombie this morning than I was yesterday, but I think that's due to running on pure adrenaline and excitement. (Plus a little bit of pixie dust and magic.)

    Let's see... I stayed.... less than an hour less than you

    Unlike some lucky folks who managed to nap Saturday afternoon/evening, I was literally awake 36.5 hours (9am Saturday to 9:30 last night)

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    19 hours????

    I got to DTD at 9:30, met up with some Mice chatters, took a quick 2 hour nap at 2:00am, and got in line around 5am. By 4:00 I was ready to go but I wanted to at least stay until the rededication!!! I'm glad I did. I was sad to leave everyone behind though

    Well, planning works. Although, I think you win the Most Sleep-Deprived MiceChatter award.

    I actually managed (unplanned) to return to my car at the precise moment I left it. 4:45.
    So precisely 12 hours. I really wanted to make it to the dedication speech, but I was really feeling sick. Now I know my limits- pick EITHER the cotton candy OR the churro!
