    Will the disability pass allow for admission at a pre-determined time for Fantasmic?

    Hi there, Ramona!  You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney!

    When I visit the Walt Disney World theme parks with my son who is on the autism spectrum, we use Disability Access Service (DAS).  This accommodation is intended for Guests who, due to a disability, cannot wait in a typical queue environment.  Guests using DAS can request a return time for an attraction through their My Disney Experience mobile app.  The given return time will be based on the current standby wait for the attraction, and any time after that return time, the Guest may return and access the attraction without waiting in the standby queue.

    Since Fantasmic! is a show rather than a ride and does not have a queue per se, Fantasmic! is not an experience for which you will be able to obtain a DAS return time.  Guests may arrive as early as 90 minutes prior to show time to enter the amphitheater where Fantasmic! is performed.  If this is too long of a wait for you and your group, no worries.  While I wouldn't wait until the very last minute to grab a seat for the show, the amphitheater is huge and curves around the lagoon where Fantasmic! takes place.  There really are no bad seats, so even if you're not among the first Guests to be seated, I think you'll still be able to enjoy the show.  

    Another option that you might want to look into is a Fantasmic! Dining Package.  Booking a Fantasmic! Dining Package provides you with a delicious meal at one of five Disney's Hollywood Studios restaurants, as well as a spot in a reserved seating section for Fantasmic!  While you will need to arrive at least 25 minutes before showtime to be seated in the reserved section, this really cuts down on your wait for the show.  There is a separate entrance for dining package Guests, and although seating within the dining package area is first come, first served, anywhere in this section is an amazing seat for the show.

    Ramona, I hope that you enjoy your journey through Mickey's imagination at Fantasmic!  If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to ask.  We're all ears!

    See ya real soon!
