    Luv to the Moms! DH, DD(7) & Special DS(5) Plan on a pass - ? if I let cm know when being seated in 3D theater, can we be seated close to an exit if the show is to much. Don't want to disturb the other guests and I never know what he will like or fear

    One of my daughters has had sensory integration issues. She really couldn't handle the 3D movies when she was small, and even at age nine, she will only go into them with protest. We discovered that she has problems with the 3D experience when she had a MAJOR meltdown during the MuppetVision show at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    The thing to do in this circumstance is to talk the crying child out of the theater immediately. That's really the best thing to do for the comfort of your own child as well as the other guests. If you think you might need to make a quick departure from a theater, you should sit near an exit. As you suggest, you can ask a cast member for help if you need assistance securing an exit-area seat. If problems do occur, try to leave quickly and quietly.

    FYI, There are a few shows at WDW where early exits are discouraged, the two that come immediately to mind are Sounds Dangerous and Fantasmic, both in Disney's Hollywood Studios. There are announcements made at the beginning of these shows that guests should remain seated because of lighting conditions. This is for your own safety. Both these show have portions that are almost completely dark. In general though, if a show is not working for your family and you can leave without disturbing others, then you should feel free to leave.
