I was worried that some people would have signed up for the campout, and then just did the ERT and left meaning that they would have taken a spot from those who were actually interested in taking part in this unique event, but seeing how the park made it an option is very cool to allow those who just wanted to take part, but not camp, still able to join in the fun.
I agree Robb it was very cool of the park to allow those who just wanted to take part, but not camp, still be able to join in the fun. (That's what I did with my guest since I don't own a tent and I have access to my own version of "camping" [on water - a.k.a. boat] less than 5 mins from the park.) By the way, I did see ElToroMillieniumForce and his family waiting in the line up by the resort gate for the campers to walk back to set up and saw his tent set up later during the ERT time (it was one of the best looking tents I saw set up on the grass inside the antique cars track area). Seeing all those tents set up in the back of the park like that was a great site to see (unfortunately my night time photos did not come out
). Also, I was impressed by the large numbers of families with their kids like ElToroMillieniumForce camping out. CP Tony was a trooper for this event. I saw him and said hi to him at the check-in table about an hour before ElToroMillieniumForce said he arrived. I also saw him later on the Maverick station platform during the ERT time and I saw him later on closer to midnight talking with some of the staff and campers near the refreshments and smores they had set up in Frontier town. This was a very fun event and I hope they do it again!
(P.S. In-case you're reading this Tony [or anyone else from the park] - my guest and I have to give a big bravo to all of your live entertainment cast and crew. The Luminosity show on Friday night was awesome and the lead singers were great -- and the one that sang Lady Gaga was spot on [I almost did a double take to see if it actually was Gaga was up on the stage or not]. We also saw the Broadway tribute show both on Friday [when we needed a break] and on Saturday [ducking in from the rain] and the performers in that show are truly awesome! Their rendition of "One Day More" from Les Misérables is outstanding! The vocal talent of several of the ladies and guys in the show is phenomenal.)
