    I just booked the dining pkg since I use a ECV and can't do stairs.
    How long before the show starts do you suggest arriving? Or would I've better off getting a fast pass for ROL? TIA

    You don't have to use stairs - there is a ramp. Just tell the CMs that you can't transfer (meaning in this case that you can't walk down the stairs) and that you need to know where the ramp is to get down to the HA seating.

    We got a dining package, only for seating reasons since I'm in the wheelchair, but I wonder if fast pass would keep me just As safe , the dining package is costly
    And not our taste

    We had only FP+, and had no problems in getting seated appropriately.

    We were there waiting at the very beginning of our FP+ time.

    We had a FP, and I was directed right round to the entrance opposite the entrance to Expedition Everest. I parked up and walked just two steps down to a bench there and shuffled along it to fill in the space. I don't think it would have made much difference to have a FP or not, tbh, as they were letting people in from at least 4 different places round the central lake.

    It was a pretty good view, although not having a load of people's arms holding up cameras and stuff in our faces would have been preferable! The man behind me basically moaned most of the way through, and I wasn't even videoing the show myself! I noticed that he stood up and leant against the railing behind him for the best part of the show.

    The show is beautiful, though, and well worth the wait.

    Just FYI - page 2 of this thread has pictures of the accessible seating spots in the Fastpass area.
