    Hello we are going to US/IOA for the first time on Jan 21st and then again later in the week. We have been about 10x to WDW but never over to US/IOA so this is so new. It will be myself turning 51 on the 19th and Huband who is 57 we arn't into big rollercoasters so hope crowds and lines won't be a problem. I bought AP because we will be going back in Sept with our 2 granddaughters 5 and 8 and wanted to scope the place out first. We will also be going to see Blue Man I think we will really enjoy the show. Our seats are M-1 & 2 so on the side do you think they are any good? Any help about the parks or the show would be of great. I know we will be getting to the parks around 8am. that should help
    Thanks You
    Linda

    Right now they are offering 50% off BMG tickets with a prefered or premier AP pass. As for M 1-2 seats I think they are in the middle to the left side. We are going again in Feb. And have front row. You will be able to see on the screens but there is nothing like being close to see their facial expressions!

    OH no I didnt know that nothing came up for passholders when I bought the Tickets. I have been all over their site and didn't see anything about 50% off we have the prefered pass I am sure there is nothing to be done now.

    We used this once in Sept and now in Feb. We were going to wait till this summer, but I think it will go up during busier times.

    I was just about to purchase our tickets for June and the front row was available. :cool1: I am glad you have been before and will return to be seated in the front. My DH and myself were afraid we would be to close and the kids would strain their necks. I will go back to the site tomorrow and purchase them if I do not receive any negative responses.

    Just got back today.

    Had front row seats and loved it.

    Stage is only 2 feet high.... so no problem with looking up :lovestruc

    Loved the show :eek: We are first timers... and enjoyed watching some rich looking older guy next to me ( who must have been given the tickets) look lost, as he obviously didn't know what he was getting himself into :rotfl2: I think he expected a Oprah or ballet

    Anyway :woohoo: :woohoo: :woohoo: if you like to have fun, this show was a blast :wizard:

    I'm going to be booking BMG tickets soon for April and was wondering how messy do you really get if you sit in the front row? :eek:

    Don't worry about getting messy.

    I don't want to tell you the whole show...part of the fun is not knowing.

    But its not like a log flume ride where you get so wet that you need to change.

    They give you a plastic bag to put over your clothes.
    I kept putting my hood up and taking my hood down...trying to guess. ( I should have just left the hood down the entire time and enjoyed the show)

    There's a bit of mess, and maybe only 2 or 3 people really got the worse of it by being front row and the 3 seats dead-center of center-stage. Everyone else no need to really worry, just enjoy some mess :)

    Thanks for the info, Markstudy. :goodvibes

    I don't mind a bit of mess, but just didn't want to have to lug a change of clothes x3 around with me all day. :laughing:

    Funny thing is.... I went to Gallagher and sat up-front also. Very hard to get front row tickets anymore...unless, people are afraid of the mess :rotfl2:

    Well, thanks to all the advice here, I've went ahead and reserved front row seats for our April trip. I have no idea what to expect really, but everything I've read/seen so far, I'm sure we'll have a fun evening! :cool1:

    don't do too much research......
    when we 1st went I thought they were only a group that banged drums full of colored water.......:rotfl2:
    WOW:banana: was I quickly put in my place ;)

    thre is sooooooo musch to this group. I was completely astonished.

    I think going unawares ( meaning don't watch youtube videos) is really the best way to go!

    also the 1st(only ) time we went , my son-in-law insisted he did NOT want to be in the splash zone , because if anyones 'sweat' hit him he'd probably gag... ( not a fan of Gallagher splash zones either) so we got 1st row behind splash zone.
    now THIS time, he decided it was all cool, no worries & got front row seats ( bringing his son who missed our last trip)
