The Quintessential Disney Moment

OK. The first thing you need to know is that Tomorrow Land, in the Magic Kingdom, is really dark. I don't mean in a cyberpunk, Mel Gibson way, either. I mean the lighting is all dark reds and blues and deep purples. It looks cool from a distance, but you can't see anything if your night vision is bad.

Luckily, the dark makes Tomorrow Land a great place to view the fireworks over Cinderella Castle. And it's even better if you just happen to be riding a rocket in the Lunar Orbiter. Loud music, explosions, and a carnival ride three stories high with Art Deco planets -- even if I was riding with my six-year-old niece-out-law and not Mark, it was one of the coolest moments of our visit.
