    Question Fantasmic Viewing Question

    Does anyone know how many hours people start staking out spots to view Fantasmic on a Saturday? I'm going to be at Disneyland March 8th.

    They queue up pretty early...couple hours.

    Here's a little tip though.

    If you are walking like you are coming from Haunted Mansion, start to walk up the bridge that goes over the Pirates' queue. Once you get a couple steps up, beyond the lamp post, grab some railing. You will be just above a trash can. Anyone standing in front of you will be below your sight line, even with a kid on their shoulder. Keep this spot. About 20 minutes before the show starts the cast members will put up a rope behind you. You are centered right in front of the Show building on the island and directly in front of one of the giant fountains.

    It's a great spot to watch the show from.

    Have fun!

    In my experience, people start plopping down in front of the ROA, sometimes 5 to 4 hours before the show...

    I don't think I've ever watched a 9pm showing of fantasmic :P I always just go to the 2nd showing so I don't have to worry about how early people stake out seats.

    I have seen people and blankes along the rivers edge as early as 5pm. Also, the 8th is the second day after Fantasmic's return from its refurb. Definately the bridge over pirates or just behind the control booth is a good spot to watch. I will be there for the 9pm showing on the 7th.

    Re: Fantasmic Viewing Question

    I used to have my "special" spot whenever I want to see Fantasmic! I always get there like 5 minutes before showtime and always get good seating that I didn't have to wait for. Now, it is gone,
