    If you’re purchasing the Fantasmic package for dining, is there anywhere that you could sit and eat and see the show or do you have to go to a different area after you eat so it doesn’t really matter which restaurant you pick

    Hello there, Thea!

    Great question- actually, it’s a Fantasmic! question. Fantasmic! is one of my favorite nighttime spectaculars at the Walt Disney World Resort. You’ll even find me screaming and clapping during the more suspenseful and exciting moments. 

    The way the Fantasmic! Dining Packages work is that you can eat at one of the five table-service restaurants located all throughout the park for a fixed price, which includes an entree and appetizer or dessert at full-service restaurants or one full buffet (where applicable). After your meal, you’ll receive a voucher for prime Fantasmic! seating. 

    For example, my family recently did a Fantasmic! Dining Package at The Hollywood Brown Derby with an early dinner at about 3:00 p.m. Eastern. Our meal included either an appetizer and an entree or an entree and dessert. After our meal, our server gave us a voucher for Fantasmic!. Once we left our dining location, we rode one or two attractions and then made our way over to the Fantasmic! entrance. We were so relieved we had the vouchers because we didn’t have to wait in a long line to enter the theatre and our seats were front and center. 

    We showed up to Fantasmic! about 45 minutes before the show began to get a seat towards the front of the V.I.P. viewing area. It was perfect! While you wait for the show to begin, you can always pick up a snack or beverage for purchase within the Fantasmic! viewing area. I hope these tips help you have an evening beyond your imagination. 

    May the magic be with you!
