    I read that Fantasmic is coming back the end of May. Are there dining options to get a better/guaranteed seat?

    Hey there, hi there, Clara!

    Welcome to planDisney and boy, are we ever excited for the return of Fantasmic! This iconic nighttime spectacular will be making its debut this year on May 24, 2024, almost 32 years to the day of its original premiere in 1992! I love that they're bringing back the Peter Pan sequence, which is how I remember the show from its original days when I was a student, watching the show in wide-eyed wonder.

    At the time of this writing, there do appear to be Fantasmic! Dining Packages available through both River Belle Terrace and the Blue Bayou Restaurant. Given the popularity of the show, reservations are understandably very difficult to obtain. I would recommend checking back frequently to see if any reservations open up as Guests can sometimes change their plans. 

    In the past the Hungry Bear Restaurant has offered On-the-Go Packages which do appear on the website but, as of this writing, I'm not seeing a way to reserve this package. We know that Hungry Bear will remain open after Critter Country closes, so I would recommend that you keep checking the website for any changes. 

    Reserved viewing for Fantasmic! is definitely the way to go and I wish you the best of luck as you plan your trip. You're also going to be able to experience Season of the Force as well as Pixar Fest during your visit, so I hope that there are some Star Wars and Pixar fans with you! You will not lack for things to see and do while you're there!

    Clara, I hope that you found this informative and please return anytime you have more questions. We're always happy to help and we'd love to hear from you again. You're always welcome at planDisney!

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
