In 2013, when I did my summer ICP at MK, there were nights we extended to 2-3am... if I recall correctly. Also the 24 hour day... Wow, that was a wild time hah.

Man I miss the days where EPCOT closed at 9 and you could take the Monorail over to Magic Kingdom, arrive at 9:30, and close out the final 2 and a half hours over there, wrap it up with Main Street until 12:30, buy some treats, snack on them on the way back to your hotel room, and crash. Let's hope 12am closings become a thing again soon.

There's been a lot of 9 and 10:30pm Fantasmic! nights recently, which is a surprise for this time of year. Even later than when the holiday season rolls around in past years. So you realistically could stay in the park past 11pm. Guess they see a good return on these later park closings and late night F! showings.

Yeah, 9:30pm was the ceiling for quite some time. Good to see.
