Three parks open for 24 hours Memorial Day weekend!

Walt Disney World kicks off summer with an all nighter!

I've always wondered why they only do it at magic kingdom and not Epcot and Hollywood studios. I hope that they continue to do this every year and one year it happens when we are there.... I don't think I would stay in the park for 24 hours straight but I would go later in the night and into the wee hours of the morning cause I think that's when it would be least crowded and I would get to see all the characters in their pj's

Hmmm,.. might be a little late to reschedule my trip. But it does sounds cool. Hopefully they'll do it again after I'm done moving down there ( to Florida,.. not WDW).

This always happens (the two times it has) when work is in a busy season. Would love to see them do it over the summer or on a weekend.

and of course, we check out May 23rd.

Which reminds me, is it possible to extend your stay a day or two when you check in?

It depends entirely upon the capacity of the hotel when you're there. If there is space available, yes they will let yo extend. If they're at capacity, Disney will do it's best to find you a room elsewhere on property but you just never know. You just need to see what it looks like when you check in.

SO, is anyone on our forum planning on being at one of the DisneyParks for this?

Yep, I think we will head up after school Friday and stay as long as we can, or maybe come home and take a nap then go later (10ish). That's what we did last time, on leap year. We stayed til 4:30 then headed home and stopped for breakfast. It was fun. A couple things this time though, I think the kids want to go this time, so not sure how that will work. The 13yr old gets really whiny when she's tired, and after a day at school, well, it might not be fun. Plus, last time we were there for leap year it was crowded and the lines were long, like 60 min. for Space Mountain at 3:30am! Also, it seemed like such an incredibly big deal the first time they ever did it, but now that they may do it regularly, well, it loses it's excitement. Kinda like been there done that. It is a different Disney experience, I'm just getting too old for the all nighters.

That was pretty much my reaction when I heard the announcement. It was such a huge deal last year, but oh look... there it is again. I think that it will eventually lose it's appeal. I'm too old for an all-nighter too, though I think my kids would enjoy it. You'd just find me sleeping under a palm tree on the Adventureland bench.
