We took advantage of the picture-taking as we came in and claimed our photo on the way out. It was magical and those who saw the picture loved it.
Getting to the NYBG was a bit of a challenge and clear directions from the train to the Main Gate was difficult in the snow. The station is actually not in view the main gate, when it is snowing (or in darkness) and it was confusing
Also spoke on the phone twice with reps and although we spoke about the restaurants nobody mentioned you needed a reservation at The Grill, so we waited for an hour.
