With there being multiple time slots, if people don't leave the performance after its first round, is there still enough space to allow spacing due to Covid?

Additional time slots have reduced capacity to account for people staying for more than one cycle.

What is the best time to arrive at the theater before my scheduled time?

We encourage guests to come at the time listed on their tickets.

How long are you allowed to stay in the theater once you enter?

You can stay as long as you like through the end of the final cycle. We kindly ask that guests who participate through multiple cycles allow other guests the opportunity to experience the best views of the performance, as well.
