    I would like to get the most of our 2 day trip and would like to get the special seating for Fantasmic, world of color and fireworks. what is the best way to do that.

    Hi, Kimberly! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Nighttime entertainment at the Disneyland Resort is truly magnificent, so I love that you plan to experience it all!

    For Fantasmic! and World of Color, there are a few ways to see the shows. First, you can obtain a FASTPASS for a reserved viewing area. These are included in your theme park admission and aren't "connected" to the rest of the FASTPASS system, so you can continue to obtain FASTPASSES to attractions throughout the day. FASTPASSES for Fantasmic! are distributed in Frontierland near where the Mark Twain Riverboat docks. For World of Color, you can grab a FASTPASS near The Little Mermaid - Ariel's Undersea Adventure.

    The other option is to purchase a dining package that will include a fabulous meal and preferred viewing for the shows. For Fantasmic!, you have the option of three-course dinners at either Blue Bayou Restaurant, River Belle Terrace (until September 4), or Cafe Orleans (September 5-November 16); or you can choose an on-the-go package from Hungry Bear Restaurant. World of Color dining packages are available at Wine Country Trattoria, Carthay Circle, and Ariel's Grotto. There is also the World of Color Dessert Party which is an extra special option because you get to watch the show while seated at a table and enjoying scrumptious desserts and drinks.

    For fireworks, it's best to scope out a spot early. I like to watch near the Main Street, U.S.A Disneyland Railroad station, but there are lots of other great viewing areas. If you want to view the fireworks after watching Fantasmic!, simply stay where you are after the show and watch the fireworks from that area.

    I hope this helps! Have a wonderful time at the Happiest Place on Earth!
