    As the World of Colour show will most likely not be showing early October when we are at Disneyland. Which would be a better show to celebrate my daughters 10th Birthday - Paint the Night or Fantasmic? I was going to book a dining package for either one.

    Hi, Suzie!

    I’m thrilled to hear you’ll be ringing in your daughter’s 10th birthday at the Happiest Place on Earth. What a memorably magical celebration it will be!

    While I love both Paint the Night and Fantasmic!, I am partial to Fantasmic! and how it seamlessly blends live-action entertainment, high-tech special effects and dazzling pyrotechnics. It’s my all-time favorite nighttime spectacular at the resort and the perfect choice for your vacation entertainment. I think your daughter will love watching Fantasmic! light up the night at Disneyland Park as Mickey battles the forces of good and evil in his dream!

    Booking a dining package is a great idea because it combines a special meal experience with vouchers to see the show that evening. One unique option to consider is the Fantasmic! Dining Package at River Belle Terrace with the premium seating upgrade. With this package, you can enjoy a scenic view of the Rivers of America while you partake in a starter dish, entree and dessert. Upgrading to premium seating (only available for 8:00 p.m. dinner reservations) allows you to have your meal and then remain in your seat on the restaurant’s outdoor patio for the first performance of Fantasmic! Additionally, if fireworks are scheduled for the evening you watch Fantasmic!, you’ll be able to stay where you are to enjoy them. It’s a great place to see not only the fireworks, but also the projections that accompany the show on water screens in front of Tom Sawyer Island.

    I hope this information helps you decide, Suzie. Please don’t hesitate to visit us again with more Disneyland Resort questions as you put the finishing touches on your pixie-dusted vacation!

    Wishing you magic,
