    My friend and I are so excited to be at Disneyland for our birthdays! Is the preferred viewing area for the Fantasmic dining package different (better) than the Fast Pass viewing area? Where is the dining package viewing area exactly? Thank you! Michelle​

    Hi, Michelle! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am thrilled that you are planning a visit to the Disneyland Resort with your friend to celebrate your birthdays! Don't forget to stop by City Hall when you arrive at Disneyland Park to receive your complimentary birthday buttons.

    The Fantasmic! Dining Packages will not only provide you with an excellent meal, but also come with preferred viewing of the show which is typically better than the FASTPASS or standby areas. Generally, if you book the dining package at Blue Bayou Restaurant, you will have the best view at the center of the viewing area. Then the other dining packages are usually on either side of the Blue Bayou Restaurant viewing area with the FASTPASS viewing areas on the further outside edges. These areas are subject to change at any time and for later shows, they may combine areas, but that should give you a basic idea. Additionally, the viewing areas associated with the dining packages are typically allowed to remain seated to view the show.

    Since you are celebrating your birthdays, why not treat yourselves to a fabulous meal at Blue Bayou Restaurant and top notch viewing of Fantasmic! Also, to ensure the absolute best spot, show up a little early to the viewing area as people will start lining up to enter before the time printed on your preferred viewing voucher.

    Wishing you and your friend very happy birthdays!
