Every four seats then leads to three seats marked off, with a closed row in between. You may have to set separately if you’re a larger party.

You can then sit back and enjoy the air conditioning and dark theater while watching the shorts. Do note that face masks must stay on for the duration of the show.

We did notice that there weren’t any PhotoPass photographers available in this area, so be ready to make the most of your camera’s self-timer for the best photos!
