It seems like perhaps he just wants to be a “normal” kid for once on this trip and that’s why he doesn’t want you telling the CMs about it? I do think the card idea is a good one. But if you don’t want to do this, it really isn’t anything to stress over as there are VERY FEW shows in theater settings where you would need to sit up front. If you name them, you do get a list. BUT 99% of the “imporant” Disney rides are not in theater seats. They are designed so that no matter where in a ride vehible you sit you will get a perfect view (except, of course, if it’s more than two across like in Pirates you should have your son sit on the outside). In fact, you may want to go on rides twice so he can experience it from both sides – like Ellen’s universe of Energy (although it looks like a theatre, just work your way so that he’s sitting on the aisle not the middle of the bench – the way the theater seating breaks apart, if he’s on an end he’ll be able to see the dinosaurs regardless of where in the theater you start out), Spaceship Earth, Pirates, Small World, etc etc. Just start thinking about the overflowing abundance of rides that he can enjoy without having to worry about where he’s sitting! It’s up to the two of you, of course, but even if you do go along with not asking for special seating for him, he’ll only be missing out on a very small fraction and you’ll have tons and tons of really unique visual memories for him!!
