    Question Standing Room Only? World Showcase Shows

    Anyone able to identify the World Showcase movie/shows that are inside theaters that have no seats?

    I remember on our first trip to Disney, we were trying to do everything we could, and exhausted ourselves in the process. I also remember how frustrating it was when we thought we were going to relax at a show and ended up having to stand on our already tired, achy, feet. I am not sure, however, which countries had the shows you watch, like movies of some sort, that you had to stand for.

    I thought I recall Canada being a standing room only because that one seemed to be on screens all the way around us. I can't remember the other ones for sure though. Were there others that go all the way around you? Is that the only reason why you have to stand through them? Sometimes, especially since we don't generally get to the World Showcase until the afternoon, we just want to sit!

    I think it is just Canada that does not have seats but I am not sure. You can always sit on the floor

    I remember people being told not to sit on the floor... I think it was some kind of hazard in the dark, with people turning around and not seeing you down there, they might step on you or something.

    If I recall correctly I believe 'Reflections of China' has some sort of benches. So 'O Canada' would be the only film in World Showcase without seating provided that is correct.

    Impressions de France does have theatre seating. O Canada! and Reflections of China have leaning rails, no seats.

    I saw O Canada recently and I am pretty sure they told everyone not to sit on the floor for safety reasons.

    If it is not crowded you can sit against the back wall in Reflections of China or O Canada and they will not say anything. It is kind of a 270 degree experience from the back wall but I actually like to view it that way. Less moving your head around trying to take everything in.
    However, if there is a lot of people it would not be a good idea to sit.

    The 360 movies cant have seats because then it would defeat the purpose of a 360 movie. You are supposed to stand there and look around you see the wonders of Canada and China. And the reason you cant sit on the floor orsit on the rails is strictly for safety reasons.
