Oh, and you can still watch the fireworks from your Fantasmic spot even if they are before. Fantasmic will just start right after RDCT
OK, got it.

I think that additional information will be very helpful for those wanting F! details. The only thing that might be worth clarifying is that the back row is not a place to just park a stroller and access it as needed. It is where a family can sit for the show if a child is IN the stroller, without having to remove the child and collapse the stroller. (This has come up a few times on the boards as a question.)

Hmm... it's sort of hard to tell on the map there, but there is a set of stairs that come down to the seating area on the far left (looking at the river). During F! there are ropes there, creating a walkway. If you are on the far side of that walkway, they let you stand. The Launch platform is blocked off.
HTH.

Another great thread! My question is in regards to the free sitting section. Do you sit on steps or flat ground?

Flat. Steps are kept clear for people to enter/exit.

Excellent post - as always!

Thanks for all the great information in one place!

Just a little note, when we were staking out our spots for F! and sitting in the rear of the section (section 3 - I think) there were air vents that vent air from Pirates. We ended up moving a couple of times because the air smelled bad. And we didn't need to fold up our stroller, even though our youngest wasn't sleeping in it. We did use it for the 2 youngest kids as a seat for them, that way they could see over the heads of the crowds w/out having to sit on our laps.

Very nice info HydroGuy as always. I can't believe I didn't see this info last week. '

There is one more info that I thought you would like to know. You put the part of when everyone in the party leaves there blanket unattended, some other familes would moved it to the side. Also I have seen a CM folded up the unattended blanket and stroller and took it away from the area. Than the spot was opened and another family took it. When the family came back to the blanket, it was gone and were surprised. I bet they were upset when they found there blanket and stroller was moved. That's why you have at least a member of your group to be with your stuff or something like that will happen.

I called and made reservations for the first show in April and it was $60. But I do have a question, where would I need to check in to reserve my seats?

The podium is next to the churro cart across from the HM. People do start lining up next to the steps behind the cart at different times prior to the podium showing up depending on the time of year. I have seen people get there at 1630 or so during the summer. At 2000, the CM's will start assigning seats based on the first come first served and then you can leave and come back by 2030 or later if you wish.

So if I pay for the premium dessert seating package do I get a dessert tray and a seat?

Just kidding!

Thanks for all the info, still trying to decide if it's going to be worth the $120 for the show. I'm pretty sure we're going to do it. Can't take it with you right?

Thanks again for the info.

It is not always sold out because the view and service are bad. You will love it.

For a second I thought you were saying that it doesn't always sell out, and the reason for that is because the view and service are bad. But with the last sentence... I believe you are saying that it is always sold out because the view and service are great. Right?

I could have probably worded it better, it is a unique experience that is not for everyone because of the cost. It does sell out and many peoples opinions are based on the cost.

The first post answers this - location #8 in the map.
