Several High Schools all over the west coast got a chance to stay overnight at Disneyland for night-long partying. Exclusive to graduating seniors of course.
It was pretty epic. We arrived at maybe 10PM by a nice charter bus and hung out for a little. We waited in front of the Tomorrow-land area, eager for space mountain. So was about 10,000 other people (exaggerating just a little there). As soon as those ropes went down, it was a stampede, the crew members didn't even try to stop us.
We went on a lot of the rides. Space Mountain and Star Tours was first, those have got to be the best. It was my first time on the tabogan thingy, that was pretty cool. I also got to see the Pirates attraction, that was okay too.
Kat-chan and I waited forever in a line to get on the Big Thunder ride, but by the time we got up to the cart, it had broken down. Quite a disappointment, but at least it didn't break down while we were on it.
We shared some hot chocolate and a churro. We kind of got separated from the group around Tea-Cups, but that's okay.
It was fun just enjoying the park. It's quite bustling at night with nothing but high schoolers and DJs. The music was too bad. At least the HTH DJs weren't controlling the choices or it would have all been crap.
There was a very light mist through the whole night. It was kind of refreshing actually.
We stood and watched the 3:00 fireworks show, that was pretty kicking. Synched to music and everything, with pyrotechnics that you could feel from 300 feet away (not kidding), maybe more.
All of this after a long day of internship where I was hiking through canyons. Now I'm writing this after maybe 20 hours of non-stop moving and walking and fun in general.
The bus ride home was nice. We had a really big roomy charter bus. I was awake for the way to disneyland, but was completely conked out on the way home I think. It was nice and relaxing, the gloom made it all the better.
I hope it stays gloomy like this, it's so nice and cozy right now.
I'll get my pictures from the Astro Blasters eventually. Kat-chan will probably post about the cute Graduation Mickey doll she got too.
Even through the whole night, it didn't feel long enough. We couldn't hit all of the attractions, but I think we covered the major ones.
Okay, sleepy time. I've got a nice weekend ahead hopefully.
