    We are visiting Disneyland in Oct. but the entertainment schedule hasn't been released. Though 60 days out, we can't make reservations for things like the Fantasmic dining package & World of Color dessert party. When will these be available?

    Hi, Laura! Welcome to planDisney!  

    Let's talk about those Disneyland nights! Totally understandable that you would be eager to get a glimpse of the Entertainment Schedule so that you can be sure both Fantasmic! and World of Color make it onto your itinerary. Reservations for dining and dessert packages do open up 60 days ahead. If you are not seeing availability, the shows may not be performing that evening or reservations are currently full. The Entertainment Schedule is typically released six weeks ahead of time. While everything is subject to change, let's dig a little deeper into the options for each!

    After Labor Day, Fantasmic! will perform on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only. Currently, showtimes are scheduled for 9 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. on each of those evenings. Of course, this can change, but this is a good place to start with your planning. 

    • River Belle Terrace offers a Premium Dining Package and a Standard Dining Package. The premium version offers a table on the outdoor patio so that you can dine while watching the first performance for the evening! Typically, this reservation will be for 7:30 p.m. This package can be booked through the Fantasmic! Dining Package page on the website. To enjoy the standard package, you would simply make a regular lunch or dinner reservation at River Belle Terrace and request the dining package with your server upon arrival. You will receive a voucher for a preferred viewing area for either the first or second performance that evening. 
    • Blue Bayou Restaurant offers a dining package that can also be reserved through the Fantasmic! Dining Package website. When you click on "Check Availability", you can choose your dining location from the drop-down. Here, you can make a reservation for lunch or dinner and will also receive a voucher for one of the performances that night. 
    • The Fantasmic! On-the-Go Package at Hungry Bear offers a more low-key option where you would make a reservation on the Fantasmic! On-the-Go Package at Hungry Bear page, pick up your meal at a specific time and receive a voucher for that evening's performance. Pick-up times between 3:00 p.m. and 6:45 p.m. will enjoy the first show while times between 6:45 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. will enjoy the second one.

    World of Color will perform on most nights, except when the Oogie Boogie Bash - a Disney Halloween Party is taking place. Performance times are currently 9 p.m. and 10:15 p.m. but are subject to change.
    • The World of Color Dessert Party is offered ahead of both performances and can be booked on the dessert party page of the website. Check-in begins 60 minutes ahead of time and then you enjoy the show from your table while munching on sweet and savory treats!
    • The World of Color Dining Packages are offered at Wine Country Trattoria (lunch or dinner) and Storytellers Cafe (dinner). Here, you would make a reservation as usual at either restaurant and request the upgrade from your server. 
    I hope this was helpful, Laura! We are here for you if you have any more questions!
