Well I think the entertainment schedule will help. When I go in December, for example, JBJB is at 6:30--right when it gets dark. I presume this will start after that, around 6:50. Fantasmic is at 7, so all of its viewers will already be in the amphitheater. SWAGS isn't until 9, at park close. The only issue will be when Fantasmic gets out, and as you say, they can just use the behind-the-scenes exits.I am so glad I'm not a DHS showkeeper right now.
This is going to be a nightmare on Sunset St.
The only thing that might help is if they open the Bypass they normally only use for Fantasmic that cuts over to Crossroads and leave it open after dusk.
