AMEN! This is why I took a few years off. Got tired of the "Rude" who "owned" those tables.

(And for the party I went to Disney "suits" did explain to the "rude" that "you have to share the tables' but who wants to go deal with "I'ma Jerk" as your table mate? )

I am only going if I can get a reserved table. Was going to risk it last year without one but.. then they wouldn't sell me a ticket.

I will be going solo so I don't have anyone to "defend" my space LOL!

we are going with a group of four, so i guess we can take turns at the table. I also am not picky and would have no problem stealing extra chairs and not sitting at a table if I needed to?

We honestly had no problems at all finding a table last year, however some people really like having a designated home base so I think that the reserved tables will appeal to them. The one thing I didn't like about the wine view lounge was that each group appeared to have their own table, we are social people and really enjoyed interacting with other guests.

If we do PFTS it will be on the 13th, still trying to decide whether to do the Swolphin F&W Classic for two nights or just Friday and PFTS on Sat.

Mine is the 20th. Haven't decided what to do about getting the reserved seating or general admission. I won't pay for Wine View.

I agree won't pay for wine view but will probably be getting the reserve seating.

Don't quote me on this, but I believe they are about 45 minutes long, no longer than an hour

If I remember, the Eat to the Beat concerts are about 20 minutes; three sets a night.

Like Good, I remember more like 45 minutes, not a lot of time between concerts. Get people out and get the new ones in.

they're actually about 35-45 minutes. some go the full 45 minutes, others may be a little shorter.

I was just coming to ask the same question. I had no idea, until reading a review, that they did different themes each week. This is going to be critical to my decision of whether or not to go. I try to be adventurous in what I try, but I do know that if it was themed with something like Indian food, I'd have a much harder time.

Thanks!

Edited to add: In doing some more research, it looks like perhaps they stopped doing individual themes each week? I hope this is the case
