We made the decision on our drive up to the beach to do an over night at the Mouse park for the 4th of July and the drive home. We found a normal priced hotel room and we have annual tickets, so why not!
So we didn't arrive until late afternoon. We had some scheduled rides, figured we would just do a handful more, then watch fireworks and that would be it. And that's just what we did!
The park itself didn't seem THAT crowded. The only downfall was after fireworks, the lines to get on the monorail or the boat were REALLY LONG! But, the fireworks were cool....they were surrounding the park in multiple locations. And really, I think this may have been the first time watching fireworks that everyone enjoyed them. Not a single kid was scared. YAY!
