    Is the Fantasmic Dessert and VIP Experience at Hollywood Studios age based??

    Hi Jen,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question. Fantasmic! is one of my family’s absolute favorite experiences at Walt Disney World Resort. We saw it on our very first night of our very first visit, and it was just the perfect introduction to all the magical elements that makes the parks so special: the characters, the music, and the dazzling special effects. I consider it a must-do every time.

    The Fantasmic! Dessert & VIP Viewing Experience adds even more magic by giving you the opportunity to sit in great seats while munching on delicious treats and sipping on your beverage from a magical themed cup. This is where the age part comes in. Guests aged 3-9 pay the child price, and those 10 and up pay the adult price. The contents of the snack boxes are different too, with the child boxes containing more “kid-approved” options like the super fun “worms and dirt” pudding. Adult snack boxes also come with the option of an alcoholic beverage for Guests aged 21 and older.

    The show itself is all-ages; we took our son when he was 1 and he sat completely transfixed for the whole show, though I will warn you that some children do find the show pretty scary, so it’s best to know your kids and their tolerance of the Disney villains, fire, and fireworks. I recommend watching the show online if you’re not sure. My daughter doesn’t love the scarier elements of the show, so she often covers her eyes for those scenes, but still would not miss the show because the majority of it is just spectacular. Mickey's nightmare is really a stunning dream, and I am so excited for you to experience this gorgeous show!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
