    Hi! I'm wondering if I should book FP for Midway Mania and then just show up for the 7:00 Fantasmic show? I don't want our third FP to be held up if it isn't necessary. Do you think it is? Should we just go straight to Midway at opening? Help please!

    Hi Sarah!

    Congrats on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation!  These are great questions. My family considers both Toy Story Midway Mania! and Fantasmic! as "must do" experiences, so I completely understand your dilemma.  Based on my own personal experience, I would use FastPass+ for Toy Story Midway Mania!. If you are anything like my family, you may consider heading to Toy Story Midway Mania! at park opening to ride via the standby line. This would ensure that your party gets to experience the popular attraction twice. 

    We have seen Fantasmic! countless times, and have always been able to snag good seats by getting in line at least 45 minutes in advance. I do think you are wise to book your FastPass+ experiences for earlier in the day, so that you have the opportunity to book an additional FastPass+ experience after you have used your initial selections. 

    I hope this information helps in making your decision. Please don't hesitate to visit us again if you have any additional questions. Best wishes for a magical trip, Sarah!

    Happy Planning,
