    Hi! I have a few questions about Fantastmic. 1) Is good seating very important? 2) If there is no availability left for the dining packages, would you recommend the Hungry Bear deal?, 3) Does using FAST passes for this inhibit FAST pass use during the day?

    Hi there, Andrea!

    Hooray--your magical vacation is just around the corner! I hope you’re looking forward to all the adventures awaiting you at the Disneyland Resort.

    lights up the night at Disneyland Park as Mickey battles the forces of good and evil in his dream! It’s my all-time favorite nighttime show at the resort and a must-do for my family. There are many great vantage points from which to enjoy the show along the Rivers of America, and you don’t necessarily have to reserve a Fantasmic! Dining Package to see it. Disney FASTPASS service provides first-come, first-served tickets to same-day shows when the park opens. Simply visit the Disney FASTPASS machines at the Rivers of America near Frontier Landing. Obtaining a Disney FASTPASS for this show does not prevent you from getting them for other attractions throughout your day.

    However, dining packages are great if you want to guarantee that you’ll be able to see the show but don’t plan on being in the park first thing in the morning to visit the distribution machines. If the options for table-service restaurants are no longer available to you, the Hungry Bear Restaurant On-the-Go Dining Package is a wonderful way to enjoy a tasty quick-service meal and secure a viewing area voucher for this popular show. Once you pick up your meal and voucher, you can choose to dine at a restaurant table there or eat "on the go" while exploring Disneyland Park. Please be aware that no seating is provided and all show viewing areas for this dining package are standing only. 

    I hope this information helps you plan, Andrea. Please don’t hesitate to visit with more questions as you put the finishing touches on your vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
