Default Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam And/Or Fantasmic *POLL*

On the day that I'll be at Hollywood Studios next month, I have reservations for a Fantasmic lunch and a Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM Dessert Party. We did the Star Wars Dessert Party last year and loved the convenience of not having to wait ages to get a good view of the fireworks+pyro show.

This time, however, Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM starts at 8pm (for 14mins) and Fantasmic starts at 8:30pm.

Questions:
1. Do you think they'll still let us sit in the reserved area even if we arrive at 8:20-8:25pm?
2. Do you think I will have to choose between Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! and Fantasmic?
3. Have you ever attended the Dessert Party? Do they serve savory snacks as well?
4. Which do you prefer between Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM and Fantasmic?

Like them both...BUT...

if i had to choose it would be Jingle..


Fantasmic requires longer wait to get a seat AND any lightening within 20 miles cancels it.

You asked, so here goes:

My DH and I went to the Jingle Bam party last year and was great! We especially liked the adult beverages and had a lovely time. It lasts about 30 minutes too long. And I didn't realize that they began letting people from the party go on out to the reserved area about an hour before the show. By the time they escort you out to the area, there's practically no room for anyone else to stand, or in my case, park their ECV. Then the show actually starts and it was a HUGE disappointment. TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE show.

All of this to say - save your money and go to Fantasmic.
