We hang out until the crowd clears. I don't understand everyone's need to rush to go stand in another line (monorail, bus, ferry)
I discovered this by accident - we were 'popping' back to the park for the fireworks but mis-timed it and got slightly late. By the time we got there, they'd already started so we stood by the train station, it was remarkable how easy it was to leave!Originally Posted by Vikki, post: 328236, member: 106
What he said! Sometimes, we just sit in front of the castle...in my opinion, there is nothing more peaceful. After a half hour or so of "soaking up the atmosphere" we wander out. The bus lines may still be a bit long, but the hoards of people leaving are gone.Originally Posted by Tony G, post: 328211, member: 1391
We tried watching from the train station but found that they didn't turn all the lights out and it was off putting.
We tend to watch from near the Walt & Mickey statue and then stay behind to do photos. You can get great night castle photos with hardly anyone in them as everyone seems to think they must leave straight after the fireworks
We actually watched Wishes from behind the Castle this trip and that was so cool! Since we had already seen the display during this trip we headed back. You can still see almost everything, but they are more scattered around. Some are right behind the Castle and some seem to come from over behind Beast's Castle. Other than the odd bit of ash falling, the kids were dancing around and having a great time. As soon as the works were over (the rides in FL don't run during), we rode Peter Pan (15 min wait), Small World (no wait), The Carousel (5 min wait), Winne the Pooh (no wait), and then walked over and on to PoC. After all that we walked back through the Castle and the crowds were long gone. We headed out to the bus stop and walked right on to a waiting bus. Well worth staying up a bit late
