    Fantasmic! question help please!

    ok so me and my friend are going to DL and its her first time seeing Fantasmic! so we are going to camp out right up against the fence so we have a good veiw. the thing im worried about though is people trying to fit them self in a space the size of a penny next to us. so my first reaction is don't let them win so i would probably start yelling and freaking out on them. but if there is a calmer way can you please tell me otherwise your probably going to see on my trip report a video of me yelling at someone (or multiple people)
    So after 2 full days in a row of walking around disneyland and a four hour practice, I finally understand why my doctor told me to take it easy on my knee I still cant wait to do it again

    If you get there early enough for a spot against the rails, you're more than likely to be sitting down. People will fill in around you, but usually when I sit and want a little personal space, I just kinda sprawl out until people around me start settling, then I'm free to shift and move comfortably.

    Bring a blanket and lay it out and guard its borders with an iron fist. Well truly I find the more people you have with you the easier it is to keep your border from being crossed. The other key is to not let in to little kids that act so innocent. I would show up early like 630 probably if not earlier, I know that yesterday by 730 there were no front row spots left in the standing areas! Fantasmic is super popular right now. If you have problems get a CM they are helpful with saving spots if your alone.

    Wait? so basically there isnt a calmer way to keep people from trying to take our spots? Right now I am predicting a freak out.

    i find myself getting out of people's way when they STINK from their whole day at DLR. so if you smell like you haven't showered in a month, you shouldn't have a problem keeping people including me out of your way

    To add to this ... please, on behalf of all of us, make sure your blanket spot is ... reasonable, or somewhat appropriate to the percentage of area you really need. If you lay out Great Grandma's Venti Peace Quilt, and there only appears to be two of you, yes, I am going to step on your blanket.

    lol dont worry i dont really plan on bringing a blanket. besides with people trying to fit in sizes the space of a penny... my blanket would probably be torn to shreds because some people in DL dont really care whether they ruin someones property or not.

    I wouldn't go as far as saying I'd step on your blanket, but I have to agree. I understand wanting room, but don't be greedy.

    Don't waste your day waiting hours for the front row, all you will see is a rail. You can get to the show 20 minutes before hand and get an excellent spot if you know where to look. The spot I use is right near the raft launching for Tom Sawyers Island.

    The thing is, I don't really recommend sitting RIGHT in front of the fence, since it obscures your sightline quite a bit. I would suggest moving back a little; there's nothing to worry about, since the entire front section (the few yards in front of the water extending back towards the staircases) are reserved for sitting people only, so you'll have a great view no matter where you sit.
