    Hi! Going to DL next year (1 time) and was wondering about the seating arrangements for Fantasmic. I have a physical issue with sitting down on the ground and was wondering if there were places where one could stand and view the show or be seated? Thx

    Hi, Michael!

    Welcome, and thanks for asking this Disneyland Resort question. I am so happy to hear you’re planning to enjoy a viewing of Fantasmic!, which lights up the night at Disneyland Park! It’s a must-do for my family and my all-time favorite Disney Parks show.

    If you have a Disney FASTPASS to see Fantasmic! or are in the standby viewing area, these sections are currently standing room only so Guests are not required to sit on the ground. If you’d like to be seated in a chair for the show, I suggest booking the dining package with premium seating at River Belle Terrace. With this upgraded package, you can enjoy a scenic view of the Rivers of America while you partake in a starter dish, entree and dessert. Upgrading to premium seating (which is only available for 8:00 p.m. dinner reservations) allows you to have your meal and then remain in your seat on the restaurant’s outdoor patio for the first performance of Fantasmic! Additionally, if fireworks are scheduled for the evening you watch Fantasmic!, you’ll be able to stay where you are to enjoy them. It’s a great place to see not only the fireworks, but also the projections that accompany the show on water screens in front of Tom Sawyer Island.

    I hope this helps, Michael, and that your first visit to the Happiest Place on Earth is all you’ve been dreaming! Please write back with any other planning questions you may have as your trip approaches.

    Wishing you magic,
