    Has anyone here who has annual passes, done this before? Is it worth it?

    I don't know about that, but I was in Space Mountain when the electricity went out. When the backup lights came on, you could see the whole thing in a way that Walt Disney never intended. Totally awesome.

    I would live at Disney World if I could figure out how.

    I remember something similar as well. It was too cool.

    They sell really nice houses, technically in the park that basically come with unlimited admission with no black out dates. Personally I’d rather live 20-30 minutes away, spend a considerable amount less for the house and buy the annual passes. That being said, everything is relative. Lolx

    They were shooting videos for Halloween at Disney last night. My buddy lives across the street has worked there for 43 years and he said it still amazes him at night. It’s for sure worth it. I’ll see if he got any pictures from last nights filming.

    I think the pay depends where you work in disney. My neighbor works with the fiber optic Ethernet lines and I believe he gets paid pretty decent.

    We've twice to DW, both times with week long passes. The packages included at least one "after hours" evening during the week. It is very cool, and there is a lot less people.

    I was a little shocked at that price as listed.... I take it that price is extra, not part of a package? And on top of the daily rate? If so, that seems really expensive for 3 hours - and per person.

    Disney World isn't cheap, but I've had a great time when I've been there!

    They're not going to pay much when so many people would work there for free.

    From what I've heard, there is a waiting list for jobs there even with the crappy pay .

    Living fairly close by, I am familiar with the Disney Groupie. There is a fairly large local population of Disney fanatics, male and female, of all ages. They collect all the memorabilia, decorate their houses in all things Disney, exclusively wear Disney clothes, etc... They would work there 80 hours a week if they were only offered basic shelter and food in return. I actually know a guy in his mid-40's who works only to visit Disney. He's there so many times a year it's ridiculous. His only requirement for a local job is the offer of enough time off and just enough salary for him to spend as much time at the parks as possible.

    I may have a low level LED AAA around my neck. I took a look a couple of times during ride.
    NOTE there are safety sensors that bright lights could activate. I was in line for "the Mummy" when it was shut down (I was told because rider used flash photography during ride that tripped a sensor. (?I don't know if true but makes sense as there are real flames on that ride)
    I would NOT use bright light. My led is just enough to find way in dark.... But in space mountain it showed a lot. (Maybe 2 seconds on) then off. Tried to do during ride flashes. (So hard for operators to notice, unlikely to cause issue.....)
