    I celebrated the 4th of July by hanging around at Epcot. Having experienced July 4th there before, I knew perfectly well there was no point in rushing to the exit--traffic backs up horrendously, so you just sit in the parking lot for an hour.

    Instead, I took the opportunity to capture the quiet side of Epcot:

    Of course, I also shot the fireworks. You can find them in this thread (see post #12).

    Thanks for looking!

    If only the rides and food stands were open without any lines.

    I love #3.

    Thanks!

    Yeah, that'd be nice. Sadly, the coffee stands were all closed. :frown:
     
  4. nice shots
    we live 1.5 hours from disney
    have been there 50+ times, of course

    last year we went to the "pirates and princesses" night
    they close the park at 6 PM
    we got to go in from 7 PM until midnight
    the price wasn't cheap
    and.... guess what.... only 1 restaurant open ..... IN THE WHOLE PARK
    i am not freakin' kidding

    what a joke
    if you're going to take my money for 5 hours at night....
    at least give me the opportunity to FEED MY KID AND HER FRIEND.... the obligatory $12.00 hamburger.....:mad: :mad: :mad: :mad: 

    the girls were so hungry we had to leave early
    quite maddening
     
  5. Great night scenes Dawn. It's uncommon to see Disney so quiet.

    You're right about the traffic. I was once there July 4 many years ago and it took us 1 1/2 hour to exit the parking lot.
