    Does the Fantasmic Show have special wheelchair seating? My daughter is in a wheelchair and we will be visiting Oct. 20-28. Would it be better to have the Fantasmic Show Dining Package? I am concerned about entering & exiting the venue. What's best

    HI Sharon,

    There is indeed wheelchair accessible seating along the back row of the Fantasmic theater. Without the dining package, you will have to wait in line with everyone else. Once you reach the top of the walk way & enter the theater, a Cast Member will escort you to an available wheelchair accessible seat. One person of your party may sit with your daughter while the rest of your party is directed to additional companion seating near you.

    Fantasmic is only performed on select evenings now which makes it a super popular show. I have done Fantasmic both ways with my son who has mobility disabilities & personally prefer the dining package. We get a great meal & don't have to spend as much time waiting in line for Fantasmic. The section for seating with the dining package is reserved but the seats within the section are not.  I recommend getting there at least 45 minutes prior to performance time. Its still a long wait but it cuts your wait in half if you have the package.

    Reservations are accepted 180 days in advance. As soon as your window to book reservations opens, check the on-line calendar for days that Fantasmic is being performed & book your dining package.

    There are companion restrooms located in the theater which should make things a little more convenient for you. At the end of the show, hang back & let the crowds get ahead of you. We do this at every park if we are leaving following the parades or fireworks.

    I'm sure that you are already familiar with the Guest Assistance Card but the mother hen in me just has to say it anyway. Be sure to pick one up for your daughter at Guest Relations at the first park you enter during your trip. You'll only need to do this once & they can date it for the duration of your trip.  Please let me know if you have further questions regarding handicapped accessibility. I've walked many miles at WDW in your shoes.
