Where in Disney would you camp?

Walt Disney World: Disney offers you and your group a chance to sleepover in one of it's parks...where?!

The scenario: Disney has randomly chosen you and your family/group to spend a night camping in any one of it's parks. You get to choose the park and the outdoor/indoor area of the park you want to pitch camp. For the sake of this topic, weather and bug conditions will be ideal. Disney provides the sleeping bags!

NOTE: Since so many so far REALLY want to sleep inside certain rides and I hate to deny, I changed the conditions...Have at it!! :)

The loading area of the Haunted Mansion...with the music on!

I would pick the Canada Pavilion in Epcot. That place is beautiful plus there is a waterfall in the pavilion as well as several gardens.

This is a really interesting question. The Savannah at Animal Kingdom would definitely be an experience :P. For me though, it would have to be the grassy knolls in front of Cinderella's Castle. The area is just idyllic and I love the stream that runs round the Hub.

Let's see if someone can guess my response.

TH, we know you would camp in Shirley's Temple. And you all know I would camp in a Starspeeder 1000.

Here are the spots where I'd have the best time:
-Jungle Cruise
-Oasis
-Discovery Island Trails
-The Savannah on Kilimanjaro
-The Canada Pavilion Gardens

TH, is it one of the baseball fields in the World of Sports?

I like this question! Very good!

I might have to go with Canada as well due to its relaxing atmosphere, but China and Japan might be good options as well.

Animal Kingdom by Kilimanjaro Safaris would be cool!

Very creative question Mark! I would defiantly have to spend a night in the Haunted Mansion. I'd want all of the effects on and I think I'd spend the majority of my time in the graveyard scene.

If I could stay two nights, the second night would be in It's a Small World with all of the effects on as well. Including the song! The challenge on this night would be to see who in my family would survive the longest! :) We'd have to make sure that the cast members remove all sharp objects from the ride first, in case we all go insane! lol

Oddly enough, I think It's a Small World would be the scarier of the two. With all of the doll's beady eyes watching you all night! :-P

Inside the Haunted Mansion

Shirley's Temple, Dominick? I'm not sure that's close enough to the hippos for TH. Perhaps on the back of one of those prized animatronics, or at least a boat stopped alongside them. ;)

That farm house in the Living With The Land attraction. That's my dream house.

The Carousel of Progress homes- all of them, depending on how retro I feel that night. I think sleeping on the sofa would be a hoot!

I would love to sleep at Toy story midway mania

And TH gives birth to the new TPI catch-phrase:

"He sleeps with the hippos now."

Loving the responses so far, thanks for playing along! :) Gets me thinking how feasible this would be if Disney actually did pull off something like this. I know they've allowed sleepovers in Cinderella's Castle. Were those guests locked in with a big beefy guard posted at the door? Were they allowed to roam the park at night?

Hopefully TH won't get shot by Skippers! XD

Tom Sawyer Island in the Magic Kingdom.

I would sleep on top of the monorail track somewhere between MK and the Contemporary Resort. (It's just wide enough for a sleeping bag). That would make for an exciting wake up.

My family DID sleep in a ride. We won the contest to sleep over in the Haunted Mansion. Amazing night! And yes, the sound effects were on! Disney went all out to make us feel welcome....and scare the bejeebers out of the girls!

I've fallen asleep on the Jungle Cruise...
And the Space Mountain breakroom,
and the Mouseketeeria,
and in the Utilidors.

I've worked some crazy hours.

No problemas, Tim S, we'll make a special exception in your case. Very cool. ;)

Brandon, be sure to bring a working alarm clock. ;)
