    What does it mean exactly when they offer FastPass for the Wishes Spectacular and Fantasmic? I have a 7 mo & 2y/o and I'm sure they would lose interest just waiting around but I know they would love to see these shows. Can you explain or offer suggesti


    You are the guest that I believe Disney had in mind when they created the new FastPass+ for Wishes, the parades and Fantasmic. With these FP+ options, you can skip waiting an hour either on the curb or in the case of Fantasmic, in the cold, hard stands on a bench. Keep in mind, that there is a slight disadvantage to holding these FP+: you are essentially locked out of getting more than three FP+ at the park that day. When you finish using your assigned three FP+, you are allowed to get more, but because these FP+ are for events at the end of the day, you won't be eligible for more FP+ options. (One way around this in Disney's Hollywood Studios is to book a Fantasmic Dinner Package that gives you a FastPass for Fantasmic and isn't included in the three you are allowed to make. You could also purchase the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party for reserved seating for Wishes...)

    The FastPass+ seating for Fantasmic is slightly off to the side of center and better, in my opinion, than the FP+ seating for Wishes which is off to the side of the castle in the grassy area of the rose garden. However, you can arrive as late as 15 minutes before showtime and cut out the meltdowns that can occur with young children. 

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
