    Do I need to book a dining package to see Fantasmic? Or can we use FP or wait in line? We will be arriving in WDW in May, what days does Fantasmic show in the Spring? TIA

    Dear Sachiko,

    Thank you for stopping by to see us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about Fantasmic!, which is one of my absolute favorite experiences at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I have been to Fantasmic! many times and I have never purchased a Fantasmic! Dining Package. It is a large theater and as long as you give yourself at least a half an hour before showtime to get seated, it is likely that you will find a great spot for your family. On the other hand, if you are the kind of family who likes to have something pre-set and guaranteed, then the dining package might be a better fit for you. 

    Fantasmic! does show most nights at Disney's Hollywood Studios, so keep an eye on the Park Hours calendar and you should be able to see what nights you can watch it. 

    Hope that helps with your magical planning!
