My advice - while it's tempting to go all the way out on the beach towards the water, I'd hang back towards the concrete path between the Lava Pool / Hawaii longhouse and the beach. While the audio around there lately has been the best I've experienced in years, the volume quickly dies off in spots out on the beach, so closer to the path is usually a safer bet. If you're not happy with show volume when it starts, don't hesitate to move around. It's usually easy enough to maneuver your way to a spot with good audio and view. Have fun.Thank you all for the advice!
We may just get our first viewing from the beach!
