Disneyland Announces Fantasmic! FASTPASS Viewing Options and Dining Packages

Share This!

3925500104_0e09eb9e3e_bThe time honored tradition of camping out 3 hours for a Fantasmic! viewing spot is now a little less necessary. Disneyland has announced that Fantasmic! will get a FASTPASS-only viewing area starting December 12. Disney also made it clear that there will still be a stand-by viewing area for those who want to keep it old school, but it’s unclear large or how good that viewing section will be. FastPass tickets will be distributed on Big Thunder Trail (that’s the path to the left of Big Thunder Mountain) and will be distributed until they run out or 1 hour before showtime. Even with a FASTPASS in hand, I’d still recommend that you get in line for the reserved section a bit early. If it’s anything like World of Color’s FASTPASS line in DCA, it is safe to assume that it will be very long and take a good amount of time to get through.

It wouldn’t be a Disney “Nighttime Spectacular” without dinner packages, so they have also announced a variety dining options that will get you FASTPASSes for the show.

    I think this is a good idea for something different. Fantasmic! has been showing a long time, but it’s still a good show so this will give long-time viewers a new thing do to. I will say, though, that one nice thing about the old dessert party was that you got a place to sit for an hour. At the end of a long touring day, it was worth the money :). I’m not sure if a fastpass makes it worth it or not since I’ll still be standing!

      So you’re saying that the traditional dessert package with the reserved seat and the goodie box is gone? Ugh… That means no way to get a reserved seat for Fantasmic. This FP thing is just a sham. It will end up like WoC, where it might save you 30 minutes, but you will still have to get there way in advance to get a spot.

      Wonder if they’ll make everyone stand too?

    Will the dining packages for the fast passes result in fastpasses for closer and more central viewing spots? Buying the Wine Country dining package at California Adventures gave us such a great view for world of color. It was dead center and down in front. We got to watch the pixar parade from an elevated balcony at the restaurant, and the food was a mix of wonderful to ok but the great view of world of color was what made us feel like the dining package was money well spent. If we book a dining package at blue bayou which is more expensive than the other dining packages will it result in a more premium seating area, or are the dining packages different prices because the dining and food quality will be different but the viewing opportunities will be the same?
