    We would like to reserve seating for the fantasmic/dining show. I've been checking the check availability for a while now and it always says there are no available spots. Are they really all full from several months ago, or will morespotsopenup?

    Hi Kristy! Thanks for visiting planDisney.

    Yes, popular dining spots and experiences like the Fantasmic! Dining Packages in New Orleans Square at Disneyland Park can often fill up as soon as the booking window opens. Most dining locations and dining packages at Disneyland Resort have a 60-day booking window, and it's not uncommon for Guests to book their top choices the morning their booking window opens. It sounds like you've found that to be the case with the dining package of your dreams. I'm really sorry! We've all been there and it's disappointing. Guests have been eagerly awaiting the return of Fantasmic!, so I suspect its dining packages will be some of the trickier dining experiences to snag this summer.

    While it is unlikely they'll release more spots, someone may cancel, and if they do, you can be ready to snap up their reservation. Cancelation policies vary by package. Check the terms to see how close to the showtime you might still secure a reservation due to cancelations. My best advice is to keep checking! Even as close as a few hours out, keep checking using the Disneyland mobile app. People's plans change as their day does. I've secured my preferred dining reservation a few days before a trip after someone must have canceled. It does happen. Just remember that even if you do grab a dining package, the show might not run, and there are no package refunds if that happens.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, but if you're not able to book a dining package, don't let that stop you from enjoying the nighttime entertainment. The viewing area for Fantasmic! is all along the Rivers of America, and you should be able to find a good spot to watch the show. Fantasmic! may not run daily and is subject to changes in schedule and cancelation. While waiting for the show, grab some popcorn or churros from a nearby cart close to the Haunted Mansion in New Orleans Square. They're perfect showtime treats! Check the map on the app for the exact locations.

    Have a magical day.
