    I have reservations to visit DLR September 2 - 7. Will dining packages (River Belle Terrace) for the Fantasmic show be offered again? If so, when should I attempt to get a reservation? Thank you.

    Hi there, Sherry!

    Welcome back to planDisney from one Nevadan to another! One of the things that I love about living in Nevada is that it is only a short flight or drive to Disneyland Resort. With most children back in school by early September, you picked a great time to visit the theme parks.

    I am beyond thrilled that Fantasmic! is returning to the Rivers of America in Disneyland Park on May 24, 2024! Not only will there be new special effects and an unprecedented battle scene between Sorcerer Mickey and Maleficent, but my favorite “Peter Pan” scene is also returning. I can't wait!

    Details about Fantasmic! Dining Packages have not been announced yet. Dining reservations are usually available up to 60 days in advance, although Dining Packages sometimes take a little longer to be released in my experience. As it approaches 60 days from your arrival date, I recommend checking the Fantasmic! Dining Package page to see if there are options leading up to your vacation. This will be a good indication if some Dining Packages may be available during your trip.  The Fantasmic! Dining Packages are very popular and sell out quickly. Try to grab a reservation as soon as it becomes available, which could be as early as 60 days ahead of time. If none are available, then I recommend checking the website multiple times a day, as cancellations do occur. 

    In the past, River Belle Terrace had two different Dining Package options. One allowed Guests to enjoy a 3-course meal and then get access to a separate Fantasmic! viewing location that evening. The other choice was to dine at River Belle Terrace at a specific time, and then after your meal, you could watch Fantasmic! from your table. I did this a couple of years ago, and I loved being able to sit in chairs while watching one of my favorite Nighttime Spectaculars! 

    Make sure to spend time exploring all that Halloween Time has to offer at Disneyland Resort during your visit! This year, Halloween Time kicks off on August 23, 2024, and there will be plenty of ghoulish delights for your family. Haunted Mansion Holiday, Guardians of the Galaxy - Monsters After Dark, and Halloween Screams are some of my favorite experiences this time of year.

    Sherry, I hope this information was helpful. If you have additional questions, I would love for you to contact me directly

    Have a wicked time at Disneyland Resort!
