I liked the area between the Back to the Future car and train and the water. It has a good angle on the screen, is quite close to the screen and there are a lot of low walls to sit on. Fireworks go above the screen, too. It is a smoking area but few people smoke and you're not there long. I also saw it from the end in front of the Transformers building and the screen view was good and you see both fireworks areas. I also noticed projections on the water spouts there which were different than what was on the screen, more shadowy like.

Keep us updated on crowd levels this week.
So, if you buy the Lombard / cinematic dinner deal, you'll be in a spot where you can't see the screens well? That seems a bit shady....

No...you have a special viewing area but I wouldn't spend the money to eat at Lombard's just to see the show. The dinner package is a little pricey. You can see just as well from Mel's which is across the lagoon from Lombard's.

Thanks. So, the dinner package is a lot more than just having dinner at Lombards? I like seafood....is Lombards considered a good place?

It`s alright.

We used to go regularly but last couple of times it was just ok.

I think there are better places to eat dinner.

We didn't do any dinner packages, but got a spot close to Mel's on the fence before going down the steps to the waterfront.

It was wonderful and no one bottered us!
