    My family is very interested in seeing the various nighttime shows (Fantasmic, especially), but I am very hesitant to book a fastpass for this because I am hoping to get more fastpasses after we use our original three. Are fastpasses needed for Fantasmic?

    Hi, Jill!
    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I totally understand your concern about holding a FastPass late into your day at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    If you would like to use your FastPasses early in the day, you might be able to snag one for Fantasmic! if there are any left for the day. But if you don't want to risk it, you can also book a Fantasmic! Dinner Package at The Hollywood Brown Derby, Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano or Hollywood & Vine. You can get your VIP seating for Fantasmic! during your meal.

    Using the dining package, you will get to enjoy a great meal and a chance to sit in a reserved seating section at Fantasmic! The benefit is you don't have to get to the show super early to stand in line. You'll just need to get there 20 or 30 minutes early. The VIP seating area is first come, first served. But I can tell you from experience, you don't need to be in the front row to have an incredible time.

    Let me know if I can help you with any extra questions that pop up before your unforgettable vacation!
