    Our 1st WDW vac.-Our plane is scheduled to arrive@551pm@SFB. We would like to take in the Fantasmic show@Hollywood Studios@9pm. We plan on eating@Backlot 1st. Any suggestions on where to sit to get the best view or is the show inside?


    I'm afraid you might be cutting it close on time.  Sanford Airport (SFB) is located farther from Disney than is Orlando international (MCO), and travel time is about an hour.  Since Magical Express does not run from that airport, are you renting a car or hiring a car service?  You'd have to allow time to collect your luggage and car, get to your resort, check in and drop baggage, then get over to the park and eat...I honestly do not think you will be able to make it.  But I hope for your sake I am wrong!

    The show is in an amphitheater and the seats are all good.  The cast members have seating down to a science, and guests are directed to their seats - there isn't really space to 'choose' where to sit.  We have seen this show countless times and have never had a bad seat - even when we had no seat at all and were standing in the back, we could see perfectly.  This is, however, a very popular show and it does fill up.  You don't mention when you are traveling, but if it's during a busy time it is entirely possible that the show will fill to capacity.  If you want to see it I suggest arriving at the theater at least 30 minutes in advance.

    Good luck, and have a great trip!
