My favorite thing about Disneyland is the fireworks and I almost always try to get a spot in front of the castle, on the walkway right behind the partners statue, because it's the best place to view them, in my opinion.
I remember a while ago sitting and waiting for the fireworks and then being forced to stand once they started because everyone else was. The last time I was there, though, everyone remained seated and it was much more pleasant. I heard some lady (who seemed to be a regular) say that it was 'officially' sitting-room but I'm not really sure. It kind of seems like it would change on a per-show basis because if the people in the front stand up and the people behind them stand up there's really nothing to do but have everyone stand up. I'm kind of wondering if the people who go fairly often have experience with this... is it always sitting nowadays, or does it vary? Thanks!
