So how can you get the best seating in Disney theatre attractions? Here are some tips:

Arrive early. Sure, there may be long lines but if you want excellent seating, you will want to arrive early.
 
Be early but don’t be the first group in a row. Cast Members will ask for guests to move all the way to the end of the row. Being first one in will actually put you on the far side rather than in the middle.
 
Don’t be the family that sits in the middle forcing everyone to walk over them.
 
Plan ahead. Have a target row in mind so the group can follow you as you make your way to your coveted seats. TIP: Middle of the row about 5 or 6 rows from the stage is usually a good area.

Front row is awesome, except when there’s a smoke effect. A few of the live stage shows have a smoke effect that often invades the first couple of rows. Front rows are often reserved for wheelchairs and their families.
 
There isn’t a bad seat in the house. As long as the children can see past the Mickey ears the person in front of them is wearing, the best seat is the one your family get to enjoy the wonderful show from.
