My family and I were going to catch the 8pm showing for Candlelight tonight and we'd love to grab a bench on either side of Town Square.

What is the best way to do that? Should we just hang around the park until the first show starts then go to main street and wait till it ends, then fight for a bench?

I've only waited for the second show once (2006). Then, the CMs had us wait in a line on main street, then they escorted us to the benches. Although, for the past two years, we have just staked out a spot on the benches for the 5:30 showing, waiting since the park opened.

Thanks for the advice.
