We are going to DLR 9/22-9/26. I am trying to lay out a game plan but I'm finding it difficult not being a seasoned DL vet! I'd like to plan to do the fireworks on Friday just in case they get canceled we'd have 2 more nights to try and catch them, but I'd also like to do the 10:30 Fantasmic show the same night for 2 reasons, 1- I'm afraid Sat & Sun will be busier than Friday & 2 I have 3 small kids (ages 6,4,1) so the idea of fighting the crowds w/ them in tow 2 nights to sit & wait doesn't sound appealing plus I'd rather be able to enjoy the crowd free Tomorrowland & such on Sat/Sun night.
Question is doing both on the same night a bad idea if I'd like good viewing of Fantasmic as we've never seen the show? I've been suggested a spot by a friend for an area by haunted mansion but sounds like it's a side view & not sure if I'd be happy even if it is crowd free. Also don't want to "bum rush" thought crowds as I'll have 3 kids & don't like being rude. Suggestions?
