    My single favorite moment to be had in the current parks though is to board DLRR at just before sundown and do a couple of laps until nighttime.

    You hit on a good one.......Disneyland Railroad at night!

    Matterhorn, Jungle Cruise and I think Racers can be even better at night

    I saw the New Year's Eve midnight fireworks while on Big Thunder about a decade ago, and since nobody was in line they let us go around and around on it.

    I was lucky enough to catch the fireworks show while on Big Thunder Mountain! I even got a cool video of it. And pictures of course. So I would say BTM. In DCA, you can't go wrong with GOTG or The Incredicoaster. Those are my to go to night attractions

    My exact thought, The big disappointment for me with my recent Disney World trip was the reduced hours meant it was just getting dark when the parks were closing. Everything about Disney parks are better at night.

    ROTR even though it’s entirely inside minus the unloading area, I love that the return to Batuu transforms to night mode to match real time. The “view” visual is simply nicer at night.

    I love Cars Land and New Orleans Square at night. The ambiance is just amplified to another level.

    As far as individual attractions, as others have mentioned Big Thunder during the fireworks is really fun. And yes, on Splash Mountain it's usually a walk on and, if you're lucky, you can ride multiple times without exiting the ride .

Felt like one of those unique things you only really get to experience once.
    I so glad........it been many ,many years.....were one can enjoy good music, on a steam wheel ,
    such as Mark Twain.....I Enjoy "Jazz" quartet......
    Alec- It does my heart good ,knowing you had those time of uniqueness experience !

    I prefer the Incredicoaster at night over the day. The non-moving characters on the ride just work better at night, and it's only in the dim light that Elastigirl looks like she's actually stretching, and not just already stretched, as my imagination would have me believe.

    What? My imagination is correct on that one?

    Anyway, it works better after dark.

    Casey Jr is beyond beautiful after dark as is StoryBookLand. Both are absolutely enchanting!

    Actually, just walking around anywhere in the park and seeing its after dark personality is pretty cool too.
    You hit some good ones-
    Big Thunder Mountain R.R. become a another trill ride at night....
    and StoryBookLand (love the boat ride) does comes enchanting!
    IMO

    I know......it sad ...in own way......
    Fantasmic is a good show.....but the takeaways is the Peaceful Cruise ,around the river at night .
    and it has been long time, for me.......

    I Enjoy the over all CAR LAND at night........
    That went the action happen with with all the Lights.....

    But rockwork is nice lit by sunlight...... as Sun going down

    Jungle Cruise, especially late-night after DCA closes and they turn off the searchlight (is it still there?).

    I was at Disneyland two weeks ago and I would say that the Matterhorn at night you can’t beat it there’s nothing like it. There was a greater suspense and eerieness to the ride that can only be experienced at night time. The yeti on the mountain and escaping from it has a greater effect at night than day in my eyes. They should change it for Halloween, however way they can. I think Matterhorn would be a great candidate for a Halloween update. Bring back space mountain ghost galaxy
