    Two parter: Are the seats for the Fantasmic dessert party worth it? My daughter really wants to go and have great seats. Also - when do they release dates? We are going in the beginning of Dec. and it’s only showing through the end of Sept.?

    Great news, Kristine!  The Fantasmic! Dessert & VIP Viewing Experience is now showing availability for dates through the end of December.  For this experience, Guests pick up a treat box and beverage upon arriving at the theater, which they can then enjoy while waiting for the show to begin.  Reservations are available for times between 90 minutes and 45 minutes prior to the show.  Seats are on a first-come, first-served basis within the reserved VIP section.

    As far as whether or not this package is worth it, that is something only you can decide.  I can tell you that a large section of the theater, in the center, is reserved for Guests with a dining package or the dessert experience.  If you are already planning on dining at Disney's Hollywood Studios, you might want to consider a Fantasmic! Dining Package instead, which will include seats in the reserved viewing section as well.  FastPass+ is also available for Fantasmic!, with seating to the side of the VIP dining section.  The amphitheater is large and holds many guests.  I personally have dashed into the theater just minutes before showtime, and sat in the upper corner.  While I may not have had the "best" seats,  I was able to enjoy the show with a wide view of the action.

    I am a firm believer that every vacation needs at least a little bit of a splurge.  If great seats for Fantasmic! are important to your daughter, then perhaps the Fantasmic! Dessert & VIP Viewing Experience is the splurge for you.

    I am wishing you and your daughter a wonderful vacation.  If you have any additional questions, please visit the Moms Panel again anytime.  We are always happy to help.
