    Buy your tickets online so you don't have to wait in line. Online tickets are good for one year. You can buy tickets online using your smartphone. This saved me half an hour during Christmas Break.

    Go at night, park on the little street with meters across from the parking lot (you don't have to pay) and walk around back where the fountains are. Sit on the steps and see the city lights. Kiss her!

    ADVENTURE! Unless your phone has a decent flash that can stay on for a while, bring a small flashlight, a pencil, and maybe some extra paper or small notebook. You'll need it.

    Terribly disappointing. Little Kidspace was too young for our three-year-old, but everything else was too advanced. NOTHING to do for kids in the 3-6 range.

    Pack a lunch because the food is way expensive and kind of bad. The Spaghetti Warehouse is right behind it and you can eat in a train.
