    Can you tell me more details about Fantasmic! such as: is the best way to see the show through the premium package dining reservations at River Belle/Blue Bayou or can you get there early to wait for seating?

    Thank you, Ryan, for your Fantasmic!, I mean, fantastic question!

    I've been a big fan of Fantasmic! since I was a little girl. I think it is safe to say that I have easily seen the show at least 50 times -- that's how much I love it! The two things I recommend to increase your chances of getting a good spot for the show are booking a dining package or catching the second viewing of the show.

    As of when I am writing this message, there is a Fantasmic Dinner Package through both the Blue Bayou Restaurant and the River Belle Terrace. With the purchase of your dining package, you will get access to a special viewing area for the show. However, I still recommend getting to the assigned viewing area a tiny bit early, even with the dining package.

    My second, and typically my go-to option when I don't have young children or early-sleepers in my party, is to see the second show. Fantasmic! usually plays twice on the same night, with the first showing typically being more popular because of the earlier time. I find it easier to find a great spot without waiting too long when I see the second show. 

    But as you said, waiting for the first show without a dining package is totally an option and there will be good spots for this option too. I would probably recommend finding a spot about an hour before the start time. Buying a yummy snack or bringing a game you can play on your phone or a deck of cards can be an easy way to pass the time. 

    Enjoy what I would argue is Disneyland Resort's best show! I hope you have a magical experience.

    Best wishes,
