That is exciting.
Apparently one of the bus drivers was lucky last night ...
Punchline and he said the view is beautiful but overall it seemed to take about an hour. So I am curious as to the reason for reports of the hour timeline.

And he had the impression that the official count is 10 guests but really expecting to keep it at 8 more than likely

And yes he felt the interior breeze and it was heavenly.... well I added the heavenly part but good to know!

Maybe I will save the first time experience of “Forever” for this New Years Eve since I will be blocked out of BLTTOW. . Of which I will be forever slightly pissed.

But at least it will be constantly moving and not standing in one spot. Standing in one spot is what kills my back--as long as I am moving, I am ok.

OMG. It never occurred to me how awesome the fireworks view would be from the Skyliner as it eases behind Epcot. I'm almost trembling with excitement!

$$$ Opporutnity for Disney: For $25 pp*, load a gondola with four people, put in position for prime viewing, stop the line for the duration of the fireworks.

Dirk

*The price I would like. We know Disney will charge $125 per person and fit in 8.

That would almost be worth it if I could reach in my wallet, pull out a $1000 note, and hand it to them. (Hey I was right -- Grover Cleveland!)

Love it, but only OP or an admin can do that. Jax might be willing for a sufficient bribe.

I'm not changing the OP's title. The OP can do that if he desires.

And back at the stations - "Sorry Folks - we have a 20 minute wait for the next ride as we make a cash grab out of our newest transportation system".

Isn't that in the small print under every sign that says "closed for special event?"
