    Re: Need your help with 2 silly disneyland questions

    Back in the old days, before they took phone reservations, you had to line up day-of at the esplanade to get reserved Fantasmic! seating on the balcony of the old Disney Gallery. I got there at 3 a.m. and was first in line, but the line was 10 people long within a half hour. I remember some kindly security guards and custodians stopping to say hi.

    Enjoy your early morning line-up!

    It's funny because it's true!

    I was at the park today, and by coincidence I was also looking for views of something (not Big Thunder Mountain) from Tarzan's Treehouse.

    This is the shot I got looking toward Big Thunder Mountain:

    Unless you have a high-quality telephoto lens, I don't think you'll get a good view from the treehouse. I believe the photos that Andy Castro posts on Mondays are probably from the Mark Twain's upper level (the Columbia's deck is not nearly so high, I believe).

    You can just see the two smokestacks of the Mark Twain sticking out from above the trees. I think it's pretty clear from the photo how much closer the two river boats are to Big Thunder, and how much better the view would be of the construction work being done there.

    For my lastest episode of the Disneyland Insider, I wanted to get shots of Rainbow Ridge. I found that standing on the top deck of the Mark Twain was the best vantage point. You can see it in the video below.

    Good luck with that! Your best bet to be the first to be in the park is to be the first family to "open" the park. To be the the last ones out of the park, I seen a guy standing at the end of Main Street, wanting to be the last one out, with Security.
