    hi all

    last time we saw wishes we were put off a bit by the scrum trying to get out of the place. It took ages, we were run into all the time by pushchairs along with comments from ecvs that we should be looking out for them. It was just a nightmare and spoilt things a bit

    So looking for tips on how best to leave?

    Some people say it's best to hang around the shops for 30mins and let the crowds go but then others say that can mean joining very long queues for the buses?

    Any ideas?

    Definitely hang around before leaving. I usually take the opportunity to take some night photos of the park without the hoards of people around (who always ruin a good photo!).

    If the park is still open, use that time to ride some of the big rides that you would normally have to queue for, or even those rides which look different at night like the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, which I still haven't got round to riding in the dark!).

    I haven't stayed until after Wishes for years, I miss that but because I can't walk very fast I panic when people are pushing to get past.

    I never thought of staying in the park until the majority have left. It's something I will have to think about for next year.

    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.

    We watch it just in front of the train station. We usually get a spot just behind the garden barriers so nobody blocks our view, then we're right next to the exit and can make a quick exit :-)

    This is what we do in the summer but Christmas week it is still too hectic so we watch the electric parade then head over to the TTC and watch from there - they feed the sound to this area too.

    Wouldn't the tree be in the way at Christmas or do you mean you stand behind the fence in front of where the tree is?

    Do the fireworks "make sense" from the TTC ? or are they all over the place?

    We watched from by Philarmagic last time and whilst amazing in their own right, the story wasn't obvious because it's meant to be watched from main street

    i take it as just one of those things to be honest. We have tried to stay before and have found that the lines for the buses or trams are really long. We tend to have a plan- and seem to accomplish it quite successfully without pushing or shoving

    The fireworks do make sense - although you aren't central to them....and it takes a couple of hours off your time to get out of the park at this crazy time of year. We know we will be back each summer to watch from Main Street so it does for us :)
