    The Olympic Park contains several sporting venues such as Zaha Hadid's Aquatics Centre. In 2013, the park is to be known as Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee.

    If you can undergo 30 minutes of excruciating (& happy) marketing on behalf of Coke, you'll get a free picture with an Olympic Torch at the top with the Stadium in the background. Best do it at night.

    The troops & guards doing the security are doing a really efficient job and will have you inside in no time. Empty water bottles are fine to bring, as you can fill them inside the park.

    Really well organised for entry, friendly and helpful staff. Queues are big for the Megastore, so you might prefer to browse and order online.

    If you're getting something to eat after a session at the stadium - head up to the outlets towards the velodrome/Basketball arena for shorter queues and more variety.

    If you can manage a 25 minute walk, getting off at West Ham and taking the Greenway is much much less crowded than Stratford.

    Be aware McDonalds is not the only foodstuff you can buy on the park, there are lots of food outlets to cater for all needs, it's just that McD's are the only branded food retailer.

    Toilets are clean right now, but I can imagine them getting VERY messy when crowded. Also no Dyson-style hand driers - I am disappoint!

    Are you aware the Legacy work for the Olympic Park actually starts in January 2012, half a year before the Olympic Games actually start.

    The fastest way to London is NOT West Ham, it is probably the Javelin train from the Stratford Gate

    Don't think many shops open before 8, however the security queues at 7:30 were a doddle :)
