    I am visiting in the Easter holidays and wondering if it is really necessary to book fast passes to see shows? Or do the shows seat enough people for me to prioritize the rides for my fast passes? Thanks

    Hello Sarah!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Personally, I do not use FastPass+ for shows. I believe there is excellent viewing for all theater shows and other nighttime spectaculars such as Rivers of Light and Fantasmic! I highly recommend prioritizing popular attractions such as Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, Avatar Flight of Passage, Frozen Ever After, among others, especially because you are visiting during the Easter holiday.

    What I suggest in case you would like to secure special seating or viewing for certain shows is booking a dining package or a dessert party. With dining packages like the Fantasmic! Dining Package or the Rivers of Light Dining Package you book a table at one of the participating restaurants and are given access to a special VIP seating area to watch the shows. If you book a dessert party like Frozen Ever After Dessert Party at Epcot World Showcase you get to enjoy VIP viewing of IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth while enjoying delicious treats, and at the end you can experience Frozen Ever After. Dessert parties are also offered at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Magic Kingdom Park.

    Thank for your stopping by once again! I hope this helps you while planning.

    Best magical wishes,
