Just an update on a question I asked before leaving for Orlando on 11th August.
We went to Gatwick the day before as we only live 10 minutes away. Got there just before twilight check in opened and we were able to get the very front economy seats, row 21 with the extra leg room. We had to pay 30 each but we thought it was well worth it. I think there were only 4 rows of economy seats and we did definitely notice the extra room. We also got off the plane first so no queue for immigration. Will definitely try that again.

we got those seats flying out and didnt have to pay as we were under special assistance

Very nice leg room but seats are thinner as the tv and tray are in the arm rest

Row 21 is not an extra leg room seat row.
Its one of the two rows held back for disabled people and their families. You should not have had to pay any extra money for them

the extra leg room seats are (in addition to the exit seats)

LGW 1 = G-VROS / G-VGAL / G-VLIP / G-VROM / G-VROY
Row 50 - A/B/C/H/J/K
Row 51 - A/B/C/H/J/K
Row 53 - D/E/F/G
Row 54 - D/E/F/G

LGW 2 = G-VTOP / G-VAST / G-VXLG
Row 22 - A/B/C/H/J/K
Row 31 - D/E/F/G
Row 32 - D/E/F/G
