Default Rivers of Light viewing areas

Getting ready for our Thanksgiving weekend trip, and this years obsession is Rivers of Light. I've seen it numerous times, and each time I am enjoying it more. The music is incredible, and I've been listening to it nonstop in my car and while working in the kitchen. I can hardly wait, now that I'm more familiar with the music to see the synchronized show on the water. However, I always have viewed from the far right side of the theatre, actually where one of the shaman boats enter, and i'm wondering if I am missing a lot by not being seated in the center of the theatre. Anyone have any insight into different vantage points?
Thanks!

Default Early Nov

We just watched the show in early November from the far right of the dining package area. The central area was great for viewing both sides of the show area and all the projections throughout Rivers of Light. I can image that the far left of the fastpass area has about the same view as well.

I've seen it six times from all angles, including outside the stadium. IMO, it doesn't matter where you sit. But avoid the metal seating.

Just curious, why avoid the metal seating?

The concrete seating towards the front is much more comfortable and roomy.

We had a fast pass and arrived at 6:15 for the 6:30 Show. We had great seats on the end section and could see everything really well.
