Granted, maintenance may come in during the night and turn things on to adjust, but on the whole I believe that the general rule is that they're turned off.
    I was at MK last Sunday for the Halloween party and all Fantasyland rides were operational during the fireworks... even New Fantasyland (which was open for dress rehearsal). Seeing the fireworks go off behind the Beast's castle was a pretty spectacular sight!

    All vehicles and AAs are shut off at night; it's as much a safety precaution as anything. In order to do a final walk-through in the evening, safety locks have to be put in place, and if anyone (ANYONE) goes inside of the ride, that means that nothing mechanical is allowed to move.

    This goes for show hours, as well. If, for instance, a child managed to get out of a ride vehicle, he/she would trip sensors that shut EVERYTHING down, mid-ride.

    AAs DO turn off at night and show lighting. It's called "night mode", where ALL show lighting and AAs are turned off and all that is left is the work lights. This works very well in the Mansion and it TRULY feels like an empty haunted Manse. I have seen AAs turned off. Cosmotology needs them turned off to check costumes, change costumes, check and do hair and makeup.

    Yes - the last I heard was that they were going to take thier time and try to get it right.

    It is the overall systems that aren't shut off, but the ride system, and mechanics are shut off. So for instance they don't turn the audio off, they simply turn the volume all the way down at night.

    I'm not so sure that's true about Small World. As a former parades CM who lined up for parades right there outside of the attraction (and sometimes peeked in) I can tell you the dolls were off all the time outside of normal operating hours.

    The same thing is true about Small World. They never turn off the animatronics unless the attraction is getting refurbished. Part of it is the skins used (ie the faces of the children) and another part of it is synching up all the dolls.

    I wouldn't be surprised if it is true. I've actually heard of this before and it's quite possible. WDW and DL are working locations 24 hours a day 7 days a week 365 days a year. I'm pretty sure the attractions get custodial crews to clean the up the garbage, employees looking for lost and found items, and maintenance. After everything is done, you got about 5 or so hours till reopening.

    Anyone who has been on an attraction when it breaks down can tell you that squeaks from Animatronics are quite creepy.

    I've heard a similar thing about Harold in Matterhorn. (Which confuses me because if I remember right he doesn't even move. <.<)

    started a topic [Question] Peter Pan's Flight

    Peter Pan's Flight

    So I was on YouTube looking up the difference between the rides at WDW and DL and I came across this statement:

    "Creepy fact about this ride is that it never turns off. It actually costs more to shut down all the animatronics each night so they just let it run with no lights and obviously no music. Some cast members can't even do a walkthrough of the ride because it's too creepy. All you hear are the animatronics creaking and moving."

    Can anyone debunk this or confirm it?
