Let me share an e-mail I sent to one of the Media reps for Walt Disney Pictures....

We know that the park closes to "regular" park guests at 5 PM, but some
of the lands (such as Fantasyland and Tomorrowland) are staying open
until about 8 PM for those folks who have entered Disneyland by 5 PM.
So will "regular" park guests be allowed to watch the Red Carpet event
from at least parts of the Red Carpet along Main Street?
If so, do you know when they will be allowed to start saving seats?....
(OK, really the curb)
What time is the actual Red Carpet event?
I saw the Microsoft (and now Disneyland Resort) Press Release about the
live MSN Webcast, they are claiming they are broadcasting from 7 to 8:30
A lot of fans would love to get some "straight" answers to these
questions, so any help would be appreciated.

The red carpet will start at about 6pm. MSN is doing a 90 minute live broadcast. The carpet is going to last for longer than 90 minutes, so that's the time they chose.
