    I’ve been trying to book the Blue bayou Fantasmic show and the parade Plaza Inn lunch 60 days out at 6AM sharp to no avail (so that we are ready come our reservation window). Is it a system glitch or they are just hard to secure? Many thanks.

    Hi there, Felix! Welcome to planDisney! I can see that you are arriving on Halloween, and boy are you in for some frightfully fun tricks and treats during your visit! Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort is my favorite time of the year!

    Let's dive right into your question as I think I have some timely advice for you. The Fantasmic! Dining Package at Blue Bayou Restaurant is a popular one, so I'm happy to see that you are making plans early to try to secure those reservations. Dining can be reserved 60 days ahead of time, and the calendar is currently open through October 28th. This means that in just a few days, October 31st will open up! Keep in mind that reservations open on Disneyland time (PST), and you will need to be on the Fantasmic! Dining Package page of the website to book as opposed to the Blue Bayou Restaurant page. When you click "Check Availability", you will see from the drop-down menu that you can choose either River Belle Terrace or Blue Bayou. Those reservations will go quickly, so break out some faith, trust, and pixie dust!

    While the Disneyland Resort will say farewell to the Main Street Electrical Parade on September 1st, I do have some happily haunted good news for you. In its place, Plaza Inn is hosting an evening dining package from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. on select nights that includes a preferred viewing spot for the Halloween Screams fireworks! Just like the Fantasmic! package, this would need to be booked through the Plaza Inn Dining Package page of the website. When you search for your date, you will see that only times within that evening window will pop up. You'll be treated to sweet and savory treats, a specialty beverage, an exclusive credential and lanyard, and, of course, a beautiful view of the show. These will also open up to you 60 days ahead of time. 

    If you are thinking of trying to do both on the same evening, I would double-check the Entertainment Schedule ahead of time just to make sure you can make all the nighttime spectacular puzzle pieces fit together. While the schedule is not yet confirmed for the end of October, typically Fantasmic! performs at 9:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings with Halloween Screams lighting up the night at 9:30 p.m. While October 31st is a Monday, seeing as it is Halloween, there might be an exception to this schedule to include Fantasmic!. I can't make any guarantees, but I would make a note to check the Entertainment Schedule six weeks ahead of your trip which is when it's usually released. If you plan it just right, you could have lunch at Blue Bayou and request a voucher for the 10:30 p.m. performance of Fantasmic!, which would free up your evening to enjoy the Plaza Inn Dining Package and the 9:30 p.m. Halloween Screams fireworks. You will just need a little pep in your step to head straight over to your viewing area of Fantasmic! as soon as the fireworks finale is complete!

    I hope this was helpful in your planning! I will wish upon a star that you have luck in making those reservations. If you have any more questions, we are always here for you at planDisney.

    Boo to you!
