you have to have a fastpass to see the show? And if you do, are there any fastpassess left at 4 or 5 pm?
To get into any decent spot to see the show, YES, you MUST have a fastpass to see the show, or you must have a dining package that includes access to the show. If you can reserve a picnic online, I highly recommend you do that.
By 4 or 5 pm, you might have a good chance of seeing a later show with a fastpass, but don't plan on it if you have your heart set on seeing this show.
