Last year my friends and I went down on a grad trip. We saw glimpses of Fantasmic the night before, but no one else in my group had even seen it and they wanted to get a really good seat the next night. We decided to wait during the fireworks until the first group of people watching Fantasmic got up (in the middle right up against the ROA). I didn't know that they have CMs clean up after the first show though after the fireworks. We got a seat but they told everyone to move behind a temporary rope they set up and as they cleaned more people gathered and it became a free-for-all when the rope did go down. It was nice and clean but I recommend you bring a weapon of some sort if you want a dead-center seat during the second show... or jump nose first onto the ground and try to take up as much room with your body as physically possible.
