The code is more what you'd call guidelines than actual rules

We don't need to be close, but we need them to be able to see...
60 minutes early would probably be enough for WOC, but you would need to know exactly where to go once they let folks into the viewing area. And you will have to get to a spot on a rail.

How terrible would it be to watch it from TSMM (backwards) if we couldn't get a decent viewing spot with our FP? Possibly worth it, or not even close? I just don't think the kids are going to be impressed enough to make it worth standing/waiting for 1.5-2 hours...

If you want to get a spot for WoC in the viewing section you can minimize the perceived wait by eating dinner while waiting or taking turns leaving to ride Ariel or a close-by ride.
Think of it like some bug movie your kids really want to see. Harry Potter or Nemo or somethung. Then think of it as getting a seat in the theater in the first row to the side. So you have to angle your head up to see and you are way to close. It just ruins the movie because the spot is so poor.
