    Hello Allison. DH, DS, DGD and I will be visiting in 33 days for our annual trip. DGD is 4 & will be using a stroller as a wheechair. We have ADR for Fantasmic Dinner Pkg. Would view for show be best in the FDP designated area or wheelchair area? thz!

    Hi Debra,

    I just returned from a magical trip to Disney and Mickey told me he couldn't wait to see you again!

    Typically, seating for the Fantasmic! Dining Package is in the Witch section which is the section farthest to the right.  There is handicapped accessible seating in that section.  The view is okay and we've enjoyed sitting in that section.

    However, it wouldn't hurt to check out the sections a little more towards the center.  There is wheelchair seating located at the back of each section.  One guest is allowed to sit next to the wheelchair guest and the rest of the party can sit on the bench just in front of you.  If there isn't availability, you can go back to your reserved section.  Just keep in mind that there is limited seating in the wheelchair accessible rows.

    One thing I've notice when taking my son who uses a special needs stroller is that with it being lower, he sometimes has a hard time seeing over the head's of taller people in front of him.  I usually end up having him sit in my lap to raise him up for a better view.

    If your granddaughter will be using her stroller as a wheelchair, make sure you request a band to go on the stroller and a stamp on her Guest Assistance Card indicating that so she'll be able to use it in the queues at attractions - otherwise you will be required to park it in the designated stroller parking areas. Put it on a handle so that Cast Members can easily see it.

    Wishing you minnie magical memories :-) Allison
