    If I reserve a dining package for River of Light or Fasntasmic do I also need to use a fast pass?

    Hi Sarah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I have good news!  You absolutely do not need a FastPass+ reservation if you have booked a dining package for Rivers of Light: We are One at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, or Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios, so you can go ahead and use your FastPass+ for another attraction.

    When you make dining package reservation, your seats are already reserved in a special VIP viewing area (and you will be given your seating voucher when you arrive at the restaurant).  For Rivers of Light: We are One, you have the choice of two restaurants - Tiffins Restaurant or Tusker House Restaurant, and you'll be expected to arrive at the Theater 15-35 minutes prior to showtime, using the theater entrance located closest to DinoLand U.S.A.  For Fantasmic! you can choose between three restaurants - The Hollywood Brown Derby, Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano or Hollywood & Vine.  You then need to arrive at the theater at least 25 minutes prior to showtime at the entrance located on Sunset Boulevard next to Beauty And The Beast - Live On Stage.  Your seat will be assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, but will be located in a reserved area, so you will be guaranteed a great view. I love both of these spectacular shows - especially Fantasmic! - and I am sure you will too! 

    It's important to note that your dining will cost the same, whether or not you are including the show in your dining reservation, but please ensure you book it through the dining package here, not the regular online booking for each restaurant.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World Resort.
