[QUOTE=smallworld;1919093498]…we used to be able to show up for that spot over the train station, but I think the secret is out now!!! lol It get’s crowded up there an hour before… I hate wasting a FP on the parade, but …if you can’t see it—it’s not worth going. We learned that early on!!! :)[/QUOTE]
I thought the secret was out a long time ago.
Some yr ago, we had gone up there and we managed to get two chairs by the rail along with about 30 other people. But they had to clear the platform for a little Christmas show they did. We were seated in the railway station to wait until it was over. But it was also a staging area for the show. We were told, “you must sit here, do not take pictures, do not talk to the characters”. So we sat there. The characters were standing waiting for their cue, waving to us and such and we acted like don’t bother us. I mean we were told don’t interact with them.
Anyway, when we were allowed out again, we had our chairs back and I went to thank the CM (DH was by the chairs) someone decided to stand in the 4 inches between my chair and the railing and would not move. So from now on, I’m never thanking anyone ever again. Kidding of course, but boy that person was rude.
