Destination Disney: It's BACK!

Years ago, when Disney opened its park in France, the ELP got shipped over there. Then it came back to FL for a short run, but then it was replaced again by SpectroMagic. Well, as of the 6th of this month, the ELP is back again. My friend Heidi is restarting her "Destination Disney" meme, and I thought these pictures from last night's ELP fit perfectly with her questions:

What was your favorite Summer experience at Disney?
Do you have a favorite summer event that Disney sponsors?

The fact that summer time means extended hours and a guarantee of fireworks and parades and shows galore is part the attraction of Disney in the summer. Our passes (seasonal) blackout after Friday, so we crammed in one more visit last night. We saw the new Summer Nightastic fireworks and they are AMAZING. We sat behind the castle, and we were truly in the middle of the whole display. I'd have pictures, but my 5 year old HATES fireworks, so she spent the whole time in my lap screaming and crying while everyone else ooohed and ahhhhhed. Then we saw the 11 PM Electric Light Parade. There's a tip. If you can, see the LATER parade. It's SOOOOO much less crowded. We walked to the hub in front of the castle 15 minutes before the parade started and got front row seating.
