I'm arriving in the late afternoon/early evening on Friday, May 26 and have balcony seating for the 10:30 Fantasmic! performance. Because Guest Services will be closed by the time I get to DL, I was told that I could p/u my Fantasmic! ticket at ticket booth #5. My question is if the park reaches capacity earlier in the day, will this ticket booth still be open? I will already have park tickets in hand, so it's just a matter of getting my Fantasmic! ticket (and WIWF tour tickets for next morning).
Also, I have PS for Yamabuki at 7:10 and want to try to catch the fireworks before heading to Disney Gallery for Fantasmic! Assuming I finish dinner at 8:30-8:45, will I have time to get to the park and find a spot to see the fireworks? Or should I skip the fireworks this night and maybe take in a ride or two at CA or DL and then get to Fantasmic! at 9:45-10:00? I'll be solo this first night, so no worries about keeping track of a group (i.e., I can walk very fast).
Finally, looking for any other expert advice on making my trip extra-special. I have GCH theme park view, PS for Yamabuki, Napa Rose chef's counter, Granville's, WIWF tour, Fantasmic!! balcony, and a birthday party at Storyteller's. Doesn't have to be another splurge, maybe just some "different" things to do. I will be at the park for 5 days, so I'm hoping to fit in just about everything.
