You should TOTALLY do it!!! That'd be a great experience that you may never have again! Take advantage!! Do it for those of us who can't be there because they can't afford plane tickets and um... what? Oh, yeah, you should so go :donald:

The only two places I will ever need to be are Manhattan and Disney World.

I'll be doing it after work for some time... but not the whole thing because of my job. I can't take off two Wednesdays in two weeks.

Have you heard anything about if they will be admitting guests all during the 24 hours or is there a cut-off at some point?

I haven't heard yet but I'm sure we'll be informed here soon enough. I'd guess they would cut it off at some point, though, but I don't have a clue yet.

+1 For the American Adventure. I can only watch zooming in and out of pictures for so long. Total snoozefest.

I found out during one trip when there was a severe thunderstorm warning and a tornado watch for Central Florida that the American Adventure is the PERFECT amount of time to dry off and wait for those summer storms to go.
By the time we came out the clouds were breaking up and the ground was already drying.. Of course it was 200% humidity, but whatcha gonna do? :)

Much as I enjoy the ride, the Disneyland RR is a great nap/eye-resting spot. Everyone is looking forward at the passing scenery, lots of areas to pass thru with shade, the narration and station announcements are so familiar, I don't really even hear them, and then you get the Grand Canyon music and dinosaurs in a nice, dark tunnel. Plus, you just stay on as long as you want. It's perfect to me. Boy, for just a great foot rest, the old PeopleMover was wonderful.

Going as a young teen The Hall of Presidents was a great place to grab a nap. Now I would love to go back and actually see the whole performance. Best nap though was when we were stuck in a broken down CoP for 45 minutes.

Was anything actually running ~ sound or audioanimatronics ~ while you were broken down? I'm surprised they didn't just let you out!

We were actually stuck between stages so the doors were not accessed and it was on a continuous loop of "A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow"

Thankfully my love of music and the need to listen to it to fall asleep helped aid me in the perfect power nap. I was more concerned that we would not be able to see the whole show. I had been unaware at that time of how amazing Disney is at getting attractions back up and running ASAP :D
