I'm 6'3", so BOOYAH! Honestly, I'm tall enough that if someone shorter is stuck behind me, I'd offer to switch them places. I'll probably be fine anywhere as long as an NBA player isn't in front of me.

This only works if the people in front of you aren't taller than you are.

Illuminations FP is the best use of the 4th FP at Epcot. I couldn’t imagine getting it as one of the first three. Always been able to get it later in the day with the refresh trick.

The fastpass area is on a slope so helps to get a better view when standing at the back as you can see over everyone standing in front of you unlike every where else around worldshow case.

Be interesting to see how many folks are in the Theme Park Extra area, curious to know how well that's selling, and hopeful that it's not selling well at all. Just my personal opinion.

We used our 4th FP on Illuminations on our recent trip, and I found the area much more conducive to watching the show. In the past if we just stopped at a spot and tried to watch I just couldn't get into it with several rows of people in front of us. Or, there would always be a tree in the way. I enjoyed the show much better from the FP viewing area.

LOL. Have you seen some of these reserved viewing areas? I'm not sure it's that big of an advantage.

Some people want to see it without any riff raff between them and the action.

Reservations? You just stop and turn your head when it starts.
