    It seems to be impossible to obtain Fantasmic dining reservations. What are the options for those of us not able to reserve a dinning package? How can we view the show?

    Hey there, Katie! Thanks for swinging by planDisney with your question. Excited to hEAR you’ll be at the Happiest Place on Earth this week! 

    I’m sorry to hear you were not able to find a dining package with reserved viewing for Fantasmic! 
    You might want to stop by Hungry Bear Restaurant or River Belle Terrace in person once you arrive, just in case they have any last-minute cancellations. If that does not work out, I would ask a Cast Member sometime in the afternoon what their expert advice is based on standing room options that day. There are two shows, at 9:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.. If you can stay for the later show, it will likely be less crowded, and you might have an easier time securing a good viewing spot. You could consider being in the area around 9:30 p.m. once the Guests from the first show are clearing out. 

    In case you have a Park Hopper ticket and will also be visiting Disney California Adventure Park, you could consider joining the virtual queue for World of Color. This is the only Nighttime Spectacular that currently has a virtual queue option. About 10 minutes before noon, you can open the app, search for World of Color Virtual Queue and preselect your party. Then right at noon, you’ll be ready to refresh and hopefully secure slots in the virtual queue. If you get slots for the first show at 9:00 p.m., you can get back to Disneyland Park on time to find a spot for the second Fantasmic! show. 

    Katie, wishing you lots of luck in finding a great spot to watch our favorite Sorcerer’s Apprentice in action.
