    Those pictures are of ROL, not Fantasmic. I was talking about Fantasmic.

    Sorry - this thread is about ROL. I missed that the reference was to Fantasmic.

    Is there a place to park ECVs? We will have two, though the people using them can walk shorter distances. It would be easier for them to just park the ECV near an entrance and walk to the seats.

    Your party will simply need to let the CMs know that they prefer to park the ECVs and walk to their seats. There will be a parking area for mobility devices and strollers - don't be surprised if the ECVs get moved around a little before you get back to them at the end of the show.

    I've read through the thread, but didn't see any mention of the ROL dessert party. Is the seating shared with the dining package folks? Is it in a separate area?

    Yes I think there is room for one or two people next to you the rest of your group will need to sit infront of you

    Not where I was directed, there wasn’t. That was in the back and there was only a place for one companion. I think if you get there early enough for a spot in front that there’s more room for family on the seating directly behind you. That same strategy doesn’t work if you end up in the back. There’s a wall separating the spots for ECVs/WCs and the benched seating in front of them. I couldn’t see or talk to my family seated in front of me.

    It really depends on exactly where you are seated.
    The ADA requires at least one companion seat per handicapped space. In order to have the largest number of handicapped spaces, much of the seating for ROL is set up with one companion seat.
    The bottom picture is the seating in the back that CJN is talking about. The top picture is seating at the bottom of the theater, along the water. The spot near the top of the top picture has 3 companion seats.

    Thanks for posting that picture again, SueM. I’m so hoping to get a spot on the bottom to sit with family this next time. It’s hard to tell in that lower picture but the stadium seating in front of that cement wall is low enough that, iirc, you can’t even see the heads of your family if they’re sitting in front of you.

    You are correct. When you are at the top seating, area for the rest of your party to sit is below that cement wall.
