  • [Question] Has anyone sat in the smoking section to view Fantasmic?

    So back in 2005 my friend and I along with our 4 small kids were trying to scout out a place to view Fantasmic. We were unprepared for the crowds and ended up in the Smoking section (down by the water to the left of the stage). With the exception of only a few smokers it was actually a pretty good spot! Hardly any people and right on the water! Does anyone know if it is still pretty empty there? I would love to watch the show from there again...

    I haven't been there for a while, but I was just behind it a while ago. Was definitely a fun spot, for Fantasmic as well as fireworks. I could do without the actual smoke, but it made for a decent viewing spot.

      I viewed from the smoking area by Haunted Mansion in 2006. It's actually a pretty decent viewing spot.

        Are people still allowed to smoke there during the show?

          When I was there last year you could. It wasn't crowded at all in the area. It makes for an ok viewing spot as well.

            They shouldn't be.

              I've been there and it's a good view but I found that smelling smoke didn't compensate. Standing on the walkway just to the right of that area can still be a good last-minute view even on the most crowded days. Many times I would join the show midway through (to see the dragon and end fireworks sequence) and I could easily find a standing spot on the walkway any time of the year.

                  It is a fairly good place to watch although it is a bit off to the side. The only problem that I have ever had was with sanctimonious parents who take their children to the area and then cast dirty looks at the smokers in the area for poisoning their precious little ones.

                    ​I find "off to the side" is a great plan for getting a good seat without waiting for hours and hours.

                      This is GREAT news! Now can someone please delete this thread so nobody else is let in on this secret?

                      When we were there in 2005 there were smokers and for half a second I was peeved that they were smoking around us. But then I remembered I was in the SMOKING SECTION and quickly reversed my thoughts.

                        I sort of feel for smokers. They are punished enough with health problems. They dont deserve dirty looks. They don't deserve people intruding on their ever dwindling spaces. They dont deserve those fake coughs and rude comments when they are smoking outdoors in spaces designated for them!

                          And as long as the smoke sort of stays under control, and they toss the butts on the *trash* and not on the ground, we're good.

                          I'm kind of sensitive at the moment to smoking, since I suspect our local wildfire of 28,000 acres was likely started by a butt tossed out the window.

                            It's likely that's completely true, but just remember not all of us are careless. Don't judge an entire group of people based only on the worst of that group.

                            Except people who don't like Fantasmic. Those people people are the absolute worst human beings.
