    How can I reserve seating for the Disney park fantastic?

    Hi Sylver! Welcome to planDisney!

    Fantasmic! is one of my favorite experiences at the Disneyland Resort. There is just something truly magical about taking a journey through Mickey's imagination, fending off some fabulous villains, and celebrating victory with all of your favorite characters! With open seating along the Rivers of America, typically Guests like to stake out spots early - personally, I love to grab a sweet treat to enjoy while I wait! I can understand wanting to ensure a good view without having to waste any extra Disneyland minutes, and the Fantasmic! Dining Packages are a great option. While you are planning out your visit, keep in mind that currently, Fantasmic! is only performing on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. You will notice that you aren't able to reserve dining packages Monday - Thursday. These are quite popular, so availability may be limited, but even if you find this to be the case, continue to check. Guests are always changing their plans, and if you hold on to some faith, trust, and pixie dust, something just might open up for you!

    Both River Belle Terrace and Blue Bayou Restaurant offer a dining package that can be booked specifically on the Fantasmic! Dining Package page of the website. The River Belle Terrace option includes dinner at a table on the outdoor patio with a view of the first show of the night right from your seat! The Blue Bayou option includes lunch or dinner where you can watch your fellow Guests sail away on their Pirates of the Caribbean adventure, and you will receive a voucher to a preferred viewing area for either the first or second performance of the evening. From the Fantasmic! Dining Package site, when you tap "Check Availability", you will see the option to choose either restaurant. 

    The River Belle Terrace also offers a standard Fantasmic! Dining Package. To book this, you would simply make a regular reservation at the restaurant for lunch or dinner and request the package from your server. These are subject to availability, but include special Fantasmic! menu options along with a voucher for the preferred viewing area for either the first or second show.

    Finally, there is the Fantasmic! On-the-Go Package at Hungry Bear Restaurant. While typically quick-service restaurants do not require reservations, you will need to reserve the package ahead of time through the Fantasmic! On-the-Go Package page of the website. With this option, you select a pick-up time - either 3:00 p.m. to 6:45 p.m. or 7:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. The earlier pick-up time will come with a voucher for the first show, while the later pick-up time will include a spot in preferred viewing for the second show. 

    I know this was a lot to take in, Sylver, and I'm hoping you have a few more days to your trip that extend into a weekend so you can see Fantasmic! If for some reason that's not the case, I do have a happily haunted alternative for you! Halloween Time is in full swing and the Halloween Screams projection show above Sleeping Beauty Castle is shown nightly! Keep your eyes on the Entertainment Schedule to help you plan out your Disneyland nights!

    Magic awaits!
