Fantasmic??? How early do we really have to go? Never seen it because my boys go to bed so early - this year it is a must! Didn't do the special dinner pack- like an hour before???? Will I get a seat or have to stand!

If you go 30-45 min early, you should be fine. That theater is so big, I have never not gotten a seat. We always get a center seat, but really, I don't think there is a bad seat anywhere...you can see the show pretty well from all the sections. Just plan to be on that side of the park about an hour before, and then you can monitor the crowds. - mrsincredible  1318.4 #4 4:13AM
Do u need to purchase tickets for the show. I have never been to fantasmic. - yessy  233.5 #39 4:20AM
No you do not need to purchase tickets for the show there are seats - nodell111  166.4 #54 5:07AM
like mrsincredible said you should get there 30-45 minutes early we normally try to get there around 45 minutes early, however if you want to get seats in the wet zone(I've never actually sat there so I'm just guessing about the time) get there maybe a hour to a hour and 15 minutes early - nodell111  166.4 #54 5:11AM
1hr before if you want close seats . Even then it will be almost half full !!! The dinner & show is the best way because they have a section reserved so you don't have to be there so early . It gets packed to standing room only !!!! - skcanfield  585.2 #13 5:21AM
we went on Spring Break (1st week in April) and got there 1 hour before, and it was standing room only at that point. I guess during the busy times, it is best to get there WAAY ahead of time, but during non peak times, you should be ok with 30-45 minutes. Good Luck and ENJOY! *O* - ncjal  295.2 #28 5:29AM
Do the Fantasmic Dinner Package, it doesn't cost more than the food and is part of the dining plan.  When we went during spring break (mid March) of 2009, we couldn't even get in the area, it was full with people standing in the 'door way'.  We did the dining package in September 2010 (when crowds are low) and there was standing room only, except we got good seats because of the dining package and we showed up about 20/30 minutes before hand.  I wouldn't want to show up too early if you don't like sitting in the heat and the seats are NOT comfy! - DizneyGirl  968.1 #8 6:25AM
OMG...If u have a tendency to get claustrophobic, then avoid,lol..it's a wonderful show but def go EXTRA early..esp since now isn't an off-season..it can get VERY crowded. Also, if u have really little ones,the part with the villains can be frightening for some. We usually end up leaving or eating somewhere or going on some last-min rides (or just relaxing on sunset boulevard:)) while everyone else is running there. If u do decide to go, then try to go extra early. That's the best advice I can give. Sry for the lengthy answer.lol - mickeynme  178.1 #52 7:20PM
The scary part is SO true, scared my youngest enough to make it very unenjoyable for us! It is def scary! - DizneyGirl  968.1 #8 8:45PM
But it's def extremely crowded..more than any show or event at disney we've been to. So just be prepared ahead of time. Enjoy if u go:-) - mickeynme  178.1 #52 7:23PM
We did the dinner package...a must see show! I need to watch the beauty and the beast show in October... - islandgirl58  462.3 #19 7:31PM
It depends on how good of a seat you want. You can get there 45 minutes early and line up, or you can be like me and get there 10 minutes early for a back row seat. - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 8:38PM
All seats are great btw! - dlmickeymouseCM  2405.6 #67 8:38PM
This show is amazing. We got there 10 mins before and got seats on the side, but we could still see everything. I think 30-40 mins will get you good seats. - Disneyaddict  374.7 #625 8:43PM
We got the seats with the dinning plan but both Kim and I don't do well in th middle of crowds they do get you to get tight as sardines in a can so we told the cast members about our dilemma and they sat it up front by the wheelchair seats so be careful with the crowds and try to get an end seat if needed - firestorm64rt  42.3 #117 11:45PM
We went to the 2nd show. We got in line about 20 minutes before start time and got seats in the very center of the middle row. - nightmaresally  10.7 #245 5:56AM
We went 45mins early back in 09 in jan. & literally got the last seats all the way to the left....wasnt the greatest seats but I was happy to be sitting down....but the show was only playing 3 times a week when we were there becuz it was off season - AB1288  15.9 #196 7:41AM
Wow really none waits for more then 30. Here at Disneyland people have blankets spread like 3-5 hours before the show - maxinerenton  422.7 #542 9:17AM

MouseWait COUNTDOWN for iOS is here! Countdown the days to your next Disneyland or Disney World trip with our images OR your pics! Your Countdown also displays on Apple Watch and is beautiful on iPhone 6 screens. Secure the discounted launch price for a limited time.

So from the looks of it, there is not even one app made for those of us on android. You know there are millions of people who do not own iPhones. Its kind of rediculous these days not to offer an android version of apps. Would love to help this site grow by donating, but I see no point in that when there appears to be no intrest by the app builders here to support android. I mean how about atleast a partialy functional app so we can feel that the android users are even wanted as a part of the mousewait community. I see lots of requests and sad posts about no android, but dont see any replys by the site to the fact that anyone is even working on it.I've checked back here every so offten to see if there is anything for android users, but never bothered joining until today.I just wanted to rant a little, and now I am done.Unfortunalty, at this point I think I am officaily giving up on mousewait. Thanks for reading  and understanding my frustrations ( i hope ) and please everyone........Have a Disney-tastic day!Mark - molney14u  0.1 #105887 11:05AM
I have an iPhone and an old droid. I use the old droid for wait times when my iPhone can't connect and it works fine. There's so many droid phones to have  separate apps for but I hope android makers would start using the basic same code and security but I'm probably wishing on a star for that . I miss my droid but a lot of apps don't work the same.  - secretagentangel  6446.6 #20 8:10PM
I have the countdown and I love it! - tree320  0.6 #0 9:26AM
Doesn't everyone have a countdown clock on the top of one of their pinball machines?  Unfortunately mine is blank because our DL trip was weeks ago :( - awhittle  0.0 #127523 10:15AM
That just means it's time to start planning! 😀 - AngiMouse  104.9 #3566 1:02PM
