We’re never leaving!!!
I had the most magical day ever at WDW!
After already walking 25,000 steps around Epcot in the morning and afternoon (the 2016 Flower and Garden Show is going on), we walk into Magic Kingdom at 5pm and immediately run into a manager on Main Street.
He asked us how long we were staying and when we said that we weren’t sure, he told us about this cool ‘after hours’ VIP event with less than 3,000 ticketed guests.
Then, he gave us FREE tickets to attend it…from 11pm (park closing) to 2AM!!!!
We are never leaving!!!
The golden ticket!
25 rides will be running just for us!
A very pretty sunset, the park is starting to empty out.
Just us on the Flying carpets! There’s literally no one in the park!!!
We literally walked right on Mine Train, we had our own boats on Pirates, and the Jungle Cruise, and on Big Thunder Mountain, and we had ALL of Aladdin’s Magic Flying Carpets to ourselves!
After every ride, the CMs just said “Well, if you want to go again, just stay seated!”
And, we did! What a blast!!!
MK after dark, waiting for the Wishes fireworks.
5 Minute wait for Mines…we walked right on!
Main Street to ourselves (and the PhotoPass CM).
Leaving the Magic Kingdom at 2am.
What a magical day!!!! Thanks, Disney!!!

Ever wonder what it’s like to work for Disney???
We worked at WDW for a year in the Disney College Program (Fall 2013/Spring 2014) and have written a book about what it’s like to be a cast member working for Disney.
We’ve included advice on how to successfully get into the DCP program, including some of the actual phone interview questions, how to have a successful internship, and how not self-term before your program ends. Our book is filled with lots of behind-the-scene stories of the magic of Disney. Available now at Amazon.com in paperback and Kindle formats. Published by Theme Park Press.
