This month’s topic is something I enjoy talking about with others, what do you do at Disney at night besides watching fireworks. I love the fireworks at Walt Disney World, Wishes will make me cry every time and Illuminations is just beautiful. But I usually only like watching them once every trip and sometimes, we even skip them all together. So what do we do instead? Here is our top 3 things do to at Disney after dark.
Hit the Attractions
While everyone else is watching the fireworks at the Magic Kingdom we like to spend that time riding the attractions. Tomorrowland is beautiful at night. On our trip in April of 2010 we were able to ride almost every attraction in Tomorrowland in just a few hours. We also love heading to Fantasyland. We were able to watch Mickey’s PhilharMagic in a theater that was almost empty, it was so much fun!
Visit the Disney’s Contemporary Resort
The Contemporary is a fun resort to visit at night. You can head up to the Outer Rim or the lounge at The Wave, order an appetizer and have one of their signature drinks. If visiting a bar isn’t for you can grab a cupcake at the Contempo Cafe and head out to the observation deck to watch Wishes at the Magic Kingdom. You can also visit the beach to catch the Electrical Water Pageant. It’s also fun to visit during the holidays to see the gingerbread display.
So This is What My Room Looks Like
After a long day at the parks sometimes its nice just to head back to the room. One night after dinner in Epcot we decided that if we stayed to view Illuminations we were tired enough to sleep through the fireworks. So at 7:00 we headed back to our resort. We usually spend every waking minute in the parks so this was new for us. We showered, got in our pajamas, and enjoyed some Phineas and Ferb before heading off to sleep. I can honestly say it ended up being one of the best nights of our trip.
