    Good Morning, Do we need a Fastpass for the show Fantasmic! in Hollywood Studios?

    Hello Samantha and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    Fantasmic! is one my family's "must-do" experiences each and every time we visit Disney's Hollywood Studios. My honest answer to the question of using one of your FastPass+ selections for Fantasmic! is- it depends. If you are coming during a busy time of the year and you do not want to wait on line an hour or more to ensure a seat, then by all means, use one of your selections. There is a down-side to this, however. Disney Hollywood Studios operates on a "tiered" FastPass+ system. Guests are allowed to choose one attraction from Tier 1 which includes some of the most popular attractions, including Fantasmic! If you choose Fantasmic! you will not be able to obtain a FastPass+ for another Tier 1 attraction. This includes Toy Story Midway Mania, Rock 'n' Rollercoaster Starring Aerosmith, The Great Movie Ride and Beauty and the Beast- Live on Stage.

    An option that gives you the best of both worlds is reserving a Fantasmic! Dinner Package. This will secure you a place in a reserved section AND provide you with dinner at one of three great dining venues. I hope this helps with what can be a very difficult decision.

    See ya real soon!
