    If we watch the 8:15 candlelight processional, will it be possible to exit the theater and find a decent spot to watch Illuminations?

    Hi, Robin!  We have often just gone out of the theater and taken the first spots we can find along the rail.  I have to admit, especially on busy park nights - like during Christmas week - it can be difficult to find a good location, unless you can lift your kids up to sit on your shoulder.  Most other nights, though, we've been able to get a good spot where everyone can see.

    I find my best bet is to turn to the right when I come out of the theater.  I think many people who stay for the last show plan to leave right after and begin heading left.  Then they realize Illuminations is about to begin and start filling in space.  If I turn right, I can navigate the crowd better and have been more successful at finding those last minute places!

    Have a great time!
