    Best and worst seats



    Do you have favorite seats on some attractions? Or seats you hate?

    I insist on sitting in the "B" section of Soarin'. I don't care which row I'm in (but I like 2 the best). I will wait for this section if it's full when I get to the front of the line. Most CMs have no problem with this request.

    On Buzz Lightyear I like being on the left so I can use my right hand to spin the car.

    On ToT I like the front row the best. I think it's the scariest place to sit.

    On the other hand, I won't sit in the back row of Kilimanjaro Safari because it's too bumpy.

    Re: Best and worst seats

    I prefer the front row of Soarin' so you don't get the "foot fringe" overhead.

    I also prefer a seat on Splash Mountain with my other half in front of me (so I can hide behind him!).

    On the Backlot Tour, I prefer an outside seat on the Catastrophe Canyon side to feel the full blast of the explosions and water.

    On ToT I prefer a front seat.

    On the TTA I prefer a "car" to ourselves.

    On BTM I prefer to sit towards the back.

    On the Liberty Square Riverboat I like to lean on an upper railing on the outside to watch the world go by.

    On Ellen's Universe of Energy, I like to sit in the front row of the first car.

    On Test Track, I like to sit in the front.

    On POTC, Maelstrom and the Gran Fiesta Tour, I like a row to ourselves.

    Despite all these "preferences", we rarely ask for a certain seat. The ONLY time we ever request a seat is the front row of teh Rock 'n' Roller Coaster. It has to be done!!

    Re: Best and worst seats

    For just about every ride, I will request the front row (especially if I'm taking pictures).

    For Soarin', I always ask for middle-front row

    Universe of Energy, front row of front car

    EE I usually go Single Rider. However, if I go regular line, I will do one ride in the front row (for the view), and the rest will be last row (the drop is more thrilling from the back).

    Interesting about Ellen...I like last row of last car because I hate waiting for the other cars to come in at the end.

    For best seat I love the front seat on space mountain because it scares the living lights out of me and for worst seat any row thats not the front row on its a small world because then you have to smell somebody's BO for the rest of that long ride! Same for the latter too.
    Ps
    Good thread CA!

    I think the worst seat for any show is the one near the screaming, over tired children whose parents are overwhelmed. Or the people who talk during the entire performance.

    The best is the one next to the people you love:-) yes i know that's kinda sappy, but isn't that what Disney is all about?

    On Gran Fiest Tour, I prefer the front row. I just do. It's also easier for my kids to see everything.

    Re: Best and worst seats

    On Soarin I like the top row because there are no feet in the view of everything.

    On both splash mountains in Disneyland and Disney World I like the front seat best and on the Disney World one where it seats two I sit on the right side because you get more wet on that side.

    On tower of terror it is definitely the Front row.

    On Thunder Mountain I like the back seat because in the front the train hangs over the hills for a long time and then it starts going fast. In the back you get to be pulled over the hills and you go much faster.

    Buzz Lightyear- right side. I shoot with my right hand and spin with my left.
    Splash mountain- 1st or 2nd row
    Big Thunder- last row!!!
    Pirates- either front or back.
    People Mover- I love being in the last cart of the train!!

    Soarin- middle section, top row
    Maelstrom- front or back. Same with Mexico ride.
    Test track- front row
    Living with the land- front row

    Everest- back seat. I was in the front one time and had my eyes shut! I was so afraid to be at the edge of that mountain!!

    For soarin: i prefer the front section (A) and the front row so you dont have to see peoples feet dangling down!
    For Splash Mountain: front row gets the wettest!
