Epcot: Maelstrom (named my fantasy football team after this favorite of mine!)
MK: Carousel of Progress

It's funny, as Tergiversate says, I usually end up in Tomorrowland at night and love it. The darkness seems to fit the motif of the land.

I agree.. with all the music and the neon.. I think Tomorrowland is the absolute best place in all of WDW at night.. One think I (rarely) get to do is ride the TTC (Peoplemover now I guess, haha) at night. That is a great way to see and hear and smell it all.

Why don't you get to ride the TTA after dark now figmentaholic? Are you busy doing other things, or are you at other parks at night? You really need to make it a priority to ride it at night at least once during your next trip if you enjoy seeing everything all lit up! :D

Well I am with a group of people, and the leader/organizer has physical difficulties including stamina issues, so we usually don't get to stay too late, but its late enough that it isn't really feasible to go back out.. Its a bit of a catch-22 unfortunately.

Ah yes, I believe you've mentioned that. It's not a situation where you can peel off from the group really either is it? Oh well, a shorter day at Disney is still better than most any other day not at Disney :mickey:

No, it would be hard to break away.. If we had a bigger group then it wouldn't be so bad, but it is hard to find more than one or two people who have 7-800 dollars for a week at Disney, even if that is a good price, since it includes food as well.

But yes, you are right.. Even a little Disney is better than no Disney, that is for sure!! :lol:

I think the Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse is one of the most overlooked attractions at Magic Kingdom; I can't recall ever seeing a line for it on any of my visits... It's spectacular at night. Great view of Tomorrowland at night from up there, too.

I love going up for the views too :D And when I was younger, I went in the treehouse without ever having seen the movie or reading the book. I was intrigued so I came home and did both and had a lot more fun with the attraction when I went back knowing the full story.
