    Hello, can you tell me what time Fantasmic is on 26 August? I see that it is currently at 9.15pm. We have a Fantasmic Dining Package at 7pm at Sci Fi Dine in Theatre and I am concerned that we may not have time to eat and get to our seats for a 9pm show.

    Hi Haley, welcome to planDisney!

    You're visiting Walt Disney World Resort next month, can you believe it?! As of today, Fantasmic!, the epic nighttime spectacular at Disney's Hollywood Studios, will be presented once at 9:30 p.m. EST on Saturday, August 26. Even published showtimes are subject to change, but this information gives us a good starting point for our discussion.

    My family was thoroughly impressed with our Fantasmic! dining package experience in April. We got to enjoy a delicious meal with peace of mind knowing our seats for Fantasmic! would be there waiting for us after dessert.

    At the end of your meal at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant, after you've enjoyed your chocolate milk shake, everyone in your party will be given a Fantasmic! seating voucher. My family's were stapled together, which made them easy to keep track of. The voucher includes the date, show time, and the following instructions:

    Seating begins 90 minutes prior to show time.
    You must arrive at least 25 minutes prior to show time to be seated in the reserved section. 

    Your server at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant will help keep you on schedule. Even if your 7:00 p.m. meal takes 90 minutes, Haley, you will have plenty of time to make it to the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater in time to get seated. The walk from Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant to the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater takes about 10 minutes. For reference, my family arrived 45 minutes before show time and had seats in the middle of the center section of the amphitheater. 

    When you arrive at the amphitheater, be sure to follow the signs for Fantasmic! packages as opposed to the standby entrance. The pre-show highlight for my kids was participating in the human wave. For me, the highlight of the night was seeing the battle of good vs. evil play out on my kids' faces. Spoiler alert: they left the amphitheater with big smiles.

    As your vacation countdown continues, Haley, please continue to planDisney!
