    All of you have been a great help! We would love to stay and watch some of the fireworks shows, but, since we will be there @ one of the busiest times of year, how do we make getting a bus back to POFQ easy and quick? Is it even possible? Going 4-10 to 18.

    HI there Maegen,

    With many schools in observance of Spring Break, you are correct in saying that crowd levels will be higher than usual.  I have two tips that can make exiting the Magic Kingdom on a busy night easy peasy!

    1)  Try to secure a viewing location as close to the park exit as possible and head toward the bus stop as soon as you see the finale bursts light up the night sky.  Some of the best seats in the house can be found
     in town square, near the beginning of Main Street and you'll have easy access to the exits.  

    2)  Since most of the crowd will be exiting and heading to resort transportation directly after the fireworks finale, it is usually a good idea to wait a while before heading out to give the dust time to settle!  I usually save my shopping until the end of the night, and spend about an hour or so browsing in the Main Street shops prior to attempting to exit.  This way, the crowds have had time to dissipate a bit which makes for easy travel to my resort!

    One other suggestion...which would be the easiest and quickest to hire a taxi.  If you arrive at the bus loading area to find a never ending line, simply keep following the footpath towards the Contemporary Resort (The big white hotel in the distance).  Taxis are staged in front of the resort, and a bell services cast member will happily assist you in hiring a ride to POR.  I would estimate the cost at being less than $12.00.

    Best Wishes,
