Do you know any of those people who slip out before the last beautiful song is sung, or leave ten minutes before the big game is over and miss the winning home run that everyone talks about for years because they want to beat the crowd and avoid traffic?
Each night at Disney World after the Main Street Electrical Parade mesmerizes the guests and Tinker Bell spreads her magical fireworks over Cinderella’s castle, the mass exodus begins and everyone has to exit through the same two openings at the front gate. The magical kingdom is reported to hold over 100,000 people (in contrast, the largest Super Bowl attendance was 103,000) and as a grandparent, I understand the temptation to beat the crowd and leave before the end. However, didn’t we spend big bucks to experience all the magic?
