So I share my picture and Fantasmic dinner fastpass experience with you all. General fastpass tickets for Fantasmic have a return window one hour prior to the show. Dinner package FASTPASSES have you return 1/2 hour prior to show time. Well before that time arrived, I asked a couple Fantasmic CMs where I should wait when our window of return opens (we were Blue section). I was told over by Haunted. Around 7:50 we make our way out of haunted to an area that looked like a holding spot for FP holders (bright signs are SERIOUSLY needed). We were told wrong and instead was told Blue lines up by Golden Horseshoe. No big deal I came in packing patience not only because of this new system but also because of the park being VERY crowded. They have new traffic directions (at least to me lol) so anyone at Haunted or Critter Country trying to get to the rest of the park gets funneled back behind NOS near the bathrooms which actually worked to my surprise. We lined up near Golden Horseshoe with no problems (and where I found the first and only sign indicating where to go for FP return), CMs were amazing at keeping traffic moving, and were told they accept fastpass right at the start of your return window. Absolutely NO early arrival so we were told to hang back near the petrified tree until 8:15. Then another CM said we had to move. This is where communication was clearly lacking. We were bounced around and told different things by different CMs and when 8:15 arrived, we were told to go by Pirates because the area we waited was essentially full. Uh ok? We head that way and get completely bottlenecked in front of pirates. I maintained my calm until now and started to panic. There was literally no where to go and I couldn't breath. I track down a few CMs, they tell us keep going toward Haunted Mansion, where we were initially!!! At this point I explain we have been back and forth and have no idea where to go, that we were going back where we came. A wonderful CM saw the confusion and panic on my face I guess because she pulled us along personally to a good viewing area and told the CM there to take care of us because we had been back and forth a lot (it was right near where the dessert viewing used to be). Honestly if it wasn't for her I probably would have left cause I just didn't care enough and it wasn't worth having anxiety attacks over but it was my step sons birthday so I stuck it out. Once in a viewing area it felt nice and spaced out, I did not feel cramped or boxed in (important for me personally), we sat on the ground and waited until for show to start. We could see well but if you have a younger kid you are pretty screwed (and probably screwing others over also if you put them on your shoulders just an FYI). During the show I watched the walkways, they moved well, quite efficient for how crowded it was and after the show was over, people cleared out quick and with minimal mass crowding. The only exception being the bridge area above Pirates but I think it was just THAT crowded. So, there are DEFINITELY kinks to be worked out... The biggest being CM communication. No one seemed to be on the same page. All guests and CMs I encountered were extraordinarily patient for the most part with some confusion. Dinner package FP holder for Aladdins Oasis and Riverbelle seemed to get the biggest run arounds with the most confusion. Fastpass wise, you are better off lining up the hour prior with a non dinner package pass because they seem to do guest "loading" in tiers based on when you can return (so essentially the people with just FP that didn't get dining package got viewing than those with one who came at the same time). I know this is so long but I felt the need to explain some things out. Oh and we got to watch the fireworks and snow right from a very mellow NOS! Happy birthday again to my step son Tyler!
