    We have the Fantasmic Dining Package booked 8/23. Two years ago we walked in the backway (30min. before show). Did I read that we have to go to the regular line? How early should we get there? What's the advantage of having the Dining Package?


    You are right that the separate line for people in the Fantasmic Dinner Package is no more. Now folks with that package go in the same line as everyone else. The advantage is that there are seats saved for them, where if you are not in the package, you may get shut out of the show if it reaches capacity.

    You still have to get in line early, but not like the 45 minutes to 1 hour recommended wait time for people without the package.

    The seating for those in the package are not the best in the house. They aren't bad, but there are some better.

    Here is my advice. Since you have the package already, keep it. Still get in line a good 30 minutes ahead of time. If the show is packed, enjoy the fact that you did not have to get in line as early as everyone else, and still got a decent seat. If it is a lighter crowd, consider other seats that may be open to the "general public" in case you think they are better than the reserved ones.

    Feel free to send me any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
