Thirteen top memories of 2013: Wearing pajamas overnight in the Magic Kingdom

See also

When the Magic Kingdom celebrated the leap year in 2012 by staying open all night, I didn't think anything could top that. Little did I know that the park would repeat the feat in 2013 in honor of its Monstrous Summer celebration.

I donned my Minnie Mouse nightshirt, so of course I had to get a photo with Mickey and Minnie herself. She loved my nightie and let me know that its slogan was very accurate. Like me, she's not a morning person.

There's something really special about being at the park in the wee hours of the morning and watching the sun rise when you're standing near Cinderella Castle. Hopefully there are more overnight events to come.

Of course, when Disney made the Monstrous Summer announcement earlier in the year, that was quite an amazing event itself. Click the video accompanying this article to see Mike and Sully taking over the giant Spaceship Earth sphere. Very impressive!
