    For the Fantasmic Dining package in Disneyworld, do you get reserved seating in a chair, or is it sitting on the ground? I will have a senior with me, and the ground isn't that comfortable for them.

    Hi Brandi,

    We appreciate you continuing to plan Disney with planDisney! The Fantasmic! Dining Package was a highlight of my family's spring break trip, and I'd love to share all of the Disney details with you.

    Fantasmic! Dining Packages can currently be booked online up to 60 days in advance at the following Disney's Hollywood Studios restaurants: The Hollywood Brown Derby, Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, Hollywood & Vine, Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant, and 50's Prime Time Café. A variety of price points and meal times are available. My family decided to have lunch at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, where we feasted on Mama's Caesar Salad, Oven-baked Chicken alla Parmigiana, and Mini Cannoli Trio (each person gets an entrée and appetizer or dessert, but my daughter and I shared our appetizer and dessert). At the end of the meal, we were given four date-specific Fantasmic! seating vouchers that were stapled together for convenience. 

    Seating for Fantasmic! begins 90 minutes before the show time designated on your Fantasmic! Dining Package seating voucher. When you arrive at the entrance to Fantasmic!, which is on the right before The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror, look for the Fantasmic! Packages entrance. 

    At Walt Disney World Resort, Fantasmic! takes place in a dedicated amphitheater that seats over 6,000 Guests. The seats are metal, stadium-style bleachers. The reserved seating area for Guests with Fantasmic! Dining Packages is in the middle of the amphitheater. Note that you have to arrive at least 25 minutes early to be seated in the reserved section. My family arrived 45 minutes before the show and had a perfect seat in the middle of the center seating section. The time spent standing around before the show is limited and Cast Members do a great job of keeping the crowd moving at the end of the show, as well.

    This was my children's first time experiencing Fantasmic! and they absolutely loved it! My elementary-aged son proudly exclaimed it was his favorite nighttime spectacular ever and I know our stress-free experience and top-notch seats contributed to his decision. 

    Please reach out to planDisney with any other trip-planning questions, Brandi. Disney details are our favorite!
