Both events had kids running wild through the park, rides going down all the time because of kids getting off in the middle and breaking or stealing things, theft, wanton vandalism, there were always at least a few characters that got minor injuries (seriously the Night of Joy I worked someone actually punched Minnie in the stomach). Night of Joy was the worst.

The kids at Night of Joy were an odd mix.....some of them were really awesome and nice, but SOOOOOO many were nasty rude and just plain awful to deal with. It was by far the worst event. Veteran Cast ran from it like the plague which meant almost all the CP's at Magic Kingdom had to work it. Thank GOD (literally) it was only one night.
I am a Christian and I trace my abject hatred of praise bands and Christian Rock to working Night of Joy. Such bad memories.

I, for one, am NOT sad to see it go. It was unnecessarily hard on the cast members and the Park as a whole.


Glad to see it go.

"How interesting!" as one of my mentors would say. While I still favor the old hymns I'm beginning to tolerate praise bands. At this point, one can't seem to escape being run over by Hillsong everywhere. I'm not entirely keen ... but do find myself singing along on several HS tunes now. I'm adapting!
Having a church that does both praise and traditional, I can tell you that there are praise earworms that are so bad I start humming "Small World" to get rid of them. Others I like, but when the stick, they stick!

For us, it the "7/11" pattern: max of 7 words, repeated 11 times. Same line over and over and over and ... ugh.
