The end of the day trams at MK can definitely be an issue, especially after Wishes. My family likes to try to be some of the last guests to leave the park (usually being shadowed by cast members). The leisurely stroll out of the park, uncrowded boat ride and the walk-on tram is a much better way to leave the MK than the post Wishes mass evac.

GAH!!!! Speaking of interjecting and correcting people, I'm yelling at you guys again!

If you purchase an Annual Pass voucher (aka "Exchange Certificate"), they have ticket codes just like tickets, and they can be registered in My Disney Experience just like a ticket. Then, if the person is otherwise eligible for Fastpass+ (has a resort stay booked, etc. - although that is changing soon), they can begin making FP+ selections.

The people who will have the most problems are those who have to/wish to wait until arrival to get their tickets.
