Hi, everyone! We're new to MW, and are planning our 2nd WDW trip for next fall. We didn't get to see Fantasmic the last time. Is the seating with the Fantasmic dinner packages much better than other seating?
It's worth it. You might not be up close but you're guaranteed a seat and can see without obstruction. Its real crowded, seats are worth it. Plus you get to eat at 50s prime time, mamma Melrose, Hollywood and vine or brown Derby all excellent! - Polynesiangirl  98.3 #63 7:54PM
Welcome! - CherryTreeLane  457.7 #393 8:05PM
Welcome. Yes it is worth it and it's free (except u have to pay for dinner of course) - toogrumpy  141.5 #53 8:18PM
The dinner package is worth it, we did it last September. Seating is to the far right, but we were in the 6th row. So theres better seating if you want to go very early. - DizneyGirl  545.7 #9 8:19PM
Welcome to MW! Great question, I was also wondering about this too! - Andrea84  625.3 #7 8:34PM

Welcome. - lbron7868  5.5 #371 12:32AM
Fantasmic is a great show & doing the dining package is worth it, as you'll go through a separate entrance, bypassing the regular line & getting to your seats more quickly. The regular line starts forming about 1½ hours ahead & it can be very long! The time is better spent having a leisurely dinner & getting to the show about ½ an hour ahead. Brown Derby & Mama Melrose are our favorites. - SueBoo  18.6 #157 1:19AM
Fantasmic I understand is going to start showing every night... - PoPs1  12.2 #201 2:32AM
It's worth it if you get there early! You will have priority seating so the dinner package helps. Have fun! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #16 4:53AM
Welcome to mw fl. It's worth it, have fun :) - Hbrunelli  98.9 #61 8:02AM
Thanks, everyone! - brhimler  4.6 #457 2:22PM
It depends...in general I say go for it. If you plan on going to the later fantasmic show and you are there during an off peak travel time you may not need it. The arena is huge...when we went over thanksgiving last year the first show was full after beauty and the beast so we got food nearby. When we went to get in line for the next show (an hour before) the cast member said we could wait if we wanted but the current line only filled 10% of the show...so we walked around and got in line once it started moving into the theater. Got better seats than priority and show was nowhere near full. When we got priority in 2007 the theater never filled either...so it's a personal call. If you want to ready at one of those restaurants already, then go for it! If not...as a note-stay to the left upon entrance. All strollers are routed to the parking area on the right and it gets congested while everyone to your left keeps flying by. - lmahon424  103.8 #3292 1:05AM
Welcome! - mcarthy6  426.5 #433 1:26AM
If u get to fantasmic atleast an hour early u should get a seat and not have to pay for the fantasmic dinner thing - Disneylover5678  15.4 #176 3:41PM
We had great seats for the show without doing the dinner thing. You just have to take a chance! - Ariel42  258.1 #24 4:14PM
Welcome! I am counting the 112 days until my second trip. - poohbr1205  20.8 #148 6:44PM
