    I want to use our fast pass for the fantasmic show since I have a 4 year old who won't wait 2 hrs. How does it work? Is It really worth it?

    Hi Kenia,

    My family loves Fantasmic! but we rarely see it because we are too busy on the rides! However, I agree that no attraction or show is worth a two hour wait in my opinion.

    The FastPass+ is a great option for reducing your wait time. Once your tickets are linked on your My Disney Experience, you will be given options to pick during your vacation. Currently, you can choose up to three options per person, per day at one Disney Park.

    I rarely take the FastPass+ option for a show because they generally have large arenas or multiple showings that it is rare you can not get a seat. Unless you are going during peak travel time (Christmas week or summer and you want the first show), I would skip the FastPass+ option and show up 30 minutes ahead.

    Another option is doing Fantasmic! Dining Package. You have the choice of lunch or dinner at three restaurants and then you are given a ticket to go back to the theater with a seat reserved. This is a great way to eat and hold a seat without waiting two hours.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
