I like the coloured lights idea too. You wouldn't need special bulbs though, they could change the colour of the lights with theatre lighting gells. They use these at Disney World to change the colour of the castle at night, the coloured gells just rotate around in front of the light just like they ...

My husband and I just booked on the 26th August tour. I asked a few questions when I was on the phone but they only knew the info we had been given in the email. We decided to book into the AT hotel the night before too as we didn't fancy having to leave home at 6am to drive there! It's our wedding ...

I can't remember as it was 18 years ago! I think it was either the Mouse, 4 man bob, Beast or Corkscrew. I remember that I rode the tea cups as the last ride before I left though. As I have visited every season for the past 18 years the earlier visits are harder to remember!
