While the front row tables all along the entrance side are quite close to the rail, that is not where we sat for our May viewing. We were at the peak, the part where the front row table is farthest from the rail than any of the other tables and had absolutely zero problem watching while seated. That was actually the better view in our experiences.

Of course it will depend on preference, eye-sight, etc. But in our experiences, it just wasn't ever a problem having a perfect view while seated in the front row. At the parties we were at, most the people in the front row stayed seated. Even some in the second row since many of the tables have a checkerboard seating (depending on table sizes). Your experience might have been different, but it is not an accurate blanket statement at all.

I agree with this. I had the same experience last April.

Wow! I hope that's peak pricing for Spring Break week. I hope those aren't the regular prices. I'll pay it, but I would much prefer the $24 price.

Yes I believe those are most definitely peak. I am going the first week of March and paid $25.55/person. Not much less, but a little savings compared to the spring break prices.

Refundable?

Since these reservations are prepaid, are they refundable in case we needed to cancel? Thanks

Front row

Hi! Someone posted that they were able to get front row tables thanks to this thread. How do you get a front row table? Is it just about getting one of the first reservations for that date? We are going in July and yes, I know I have plenty of time, but want to make sure I know as much as I can going in! Thanks!

And I will try to attach it directly to the rail, using my own space without bothering anybody else. Even if you get lucky enough with your table, you should be able to set it just over the table with a good line of sight of the fireworks.
Yes -- a Gorillapod would work great. A tripod would be a bit rude, IMO. The footprint is just too big on most models. A monopod would be a better choice, but I'm not sure if they are allowed in the parks. Mine is a ROCK and could be considered a weapon...seriously, that thing is sturdy.

And that's my .02 -- no change needed.

Tables are Pre-Assigned. From what I have heard, they seat you based on the order when you called for any given date. Not 100% sure on this.

I was online when it was posted that March ressies were open and I immediately called disney dining. I will be glad report back in the thread how this worked out for me, and where I get seated. My ressie is for March 11th.
