    Allison, I have the fantasmic pkg. booked but I have read that it's not a very good viewing area. My question is if I get in line early do we just stand in line or are we allowed to sit in the theatre, and can i save 2 seats and my family arrive later?

    Hi Lezlie,

    I've done the Fantasmic dining package and while they weren't the best seats in the theater, it was nice to be able to save some time waiting in line and know I was guaranteed I'd get in. You receive vouchers for seating in a reserved section of the theater but the seats within the section are not reserved - its first come, first serve. The section is on the far right of the theater - the Witch section.

    Seating typically begins 90 minutes prior to show time. For those Guests without the dining package, it is recommended that they arrive 45 - 90 minutes prior to showtime. Guests may start lining up prior to that time. For Guests with the Fantasmic Dining Package, it is recommended you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to show time but I've found the earlier the better since you'll have more options within the reserved section.

    It is recommended that your party be together when you enter the theater. It fills up fast and saving two seats can be tricky. The Fantasmic Dining Package cuts down wait time so you may all want to go together.

    You aren't paying for the best seats in the theater with this package, just a way to confirm you'll get in while cutting down on your wait time along with getting a nice dinner (or lunch).

    Wishing you many magical memories :-) Allison
