    We booked a reservation for the Fantasmic Dinner Package on 8/12. Will this guarantee us seating for the show? How early should we arrive for the show. Thanks!

    Hi Jodine,

    Great idea! We always book a Fantasmic Dinner package when we plan on viewing Fantasmic. Not only is a delicious dinner at one of Hollywood Studios' great restaurants, but it prevents us from having to stand in the long lines for general entry to the evening's show.

    The reserved seating section for the dinner packages is blocked from entry to the regular guests and they do figure in the number of seats needed for each person on the package to insure there is adequate seating. This area is available to dinner package guests only and there are plenty of seats, however just prior to the show I have seen them open this area up to general guests if needed. This means that if you wait until just prior to the show to enter the theatre, you may find the reserved section is no longer roped off and seats may be limited. Personally even with the package reserved seating, we like to arrive around 30-45 minutes prior to the show so we can pick a great seat, make last minute bathroom or concession stops and be settled in for the start of the show.

    Hope you have a great time!
