    I am visiting Disneyland on July 30th of this month. I want to see Fantasmic but am not sure where to sit or stand? I also want to get a Fastpass, but I can only see the 2nd show that night. How can I guarantee I will get a Fastpass for the second show?

    Hello, Natalie!

    I’m thrilled to hear you’re planning to enjoy a viewing of Fantasmic! during your visit to the Happiest Place on Earth. It’s my favorite Disney Parks show and, in my opinion, the perfect blend of live-action entertainment, high-tech special effects and dazzling pyrotechnics!

    You can get a Disney FASTPASS to see Fantasmic! (which I recommend if the show is a must-do for you) by visiting one of the distribution machines near the Rivers of America on the day of the performance. Viewing areas are generally marked with signs as the showtimes approach, but if you’re unsure of where to go, any Cast Member nearby can assist you. If there are two showtimes on a given day, the machines will distribute FASTPASS tickets for the earlier show first and once those are all gone, tickets for the second show will be distributed.

    You may want to book a dining package, which combines a unique meal with a voucher to see the show that evening. When there are two scheduled shows, earlier dining reservations (before 6:00 p.m.) are usually given vouchers for the first Fantasmic! show. Dining reservations later in the evening typically get vouchers for the second show. So, while you can’t pick the time of your show in advance, making your dining reservation accordingly will influence which showtime you’re assigned. The exception to this is if you reserve the Fantasmic! Dining Package at River Belle Terrace with the premium seating upgrade. Upgrading to premium seating (only available for 8:00 p.m. dinner reservations) allows you to remain in your seat on the restaurant’s outdoor patio for the first performance of Fantasmic!

    I hope this helps, Natalie, and that your vacation is all you’ve been dreaming! Please send us any other planning questions you have as your trip approaches.

    Wishing you magic,
