    Dinner package seats are now in the middle rather than the sides. If not, Fast Pass it but whatever happens, don't miss it! You also may get a little damp depending on wind direction!

    Use a fast pass on this one. Well worth it to not stand in that long line. You'll end up getting a great seat in the middle. The water screen is impressive! Really brings back your childhood memories.

    BEST show at Disney. It makes me cry every time and is the reason why I wanted to work for Disney in the firsr place. Make sure to come at least 3p mins early to get good seats

    The first show has a pre-show to get the crowd pumped up and excited. It's pretty fun. The downside is that it gets really crowded. I recommend the second show. Fewer crowds, more seats & more magic.

    My favorite show in Disney, I watched it 6 times, and i still enjoy watching it. They add more more colorful bright lights which made more joyful to watch 👍

    Do the Fantasmic Dinner Package at The Brown Derby! You Can Order whatever you want, you get a 3 course meal, alcoholic drinks are extra but worth it! The priority seating for Fantasmic is awesome!

    One of the best live shows on property. See a large array of Disney characters in this show about Mickey's imagination. Watch as he faces off with dragon Maleficent, snake Jafar, and the Evil Queen.

    Great show but it rained I mean down poured and it cost $18. For plastic ponchos. We did get a great seat cuz so many wimpy people left. If u come around 6:15 you won't have to at for parking.

    If you don't mind spending some money for a meal or have a Disney Dining package, call Disney Dining and get the Fantasmic/Dinner package. Totally worth it. You get reserved seating at the show!

    Definitely get a fastpass for this, and arrive at least 10 minutes before tour fastpass time slot begins, to secure awesome seats. Or just buy a dinner package ahead of time; get better seats that way

    If you happen to be visiting on a 2 show night, do yourself a favor and enjoy the rides until the park closes and then make Fantasmic your last stop. The second show is ALWAYS less crowded.

    Beautiful show, surprisingly more beautiful than Magic Kingdom's fireworks... But make sure not to sit on the first 10 rows, especially during the winter, because you can get wet!

    There's no doubt Fantasmic is the best show in WDW, much better then Wishes or any other. Get early in line or you will miss it. If it rains a lot, the show won't happen.

    It's Mickey,pyro,dragons,water screen,lasers,fireworks, and a woman with fins for feet! Don't get much better than that unless you buy some of the roasted almonds! A must do @ WDW!

    Just the two of you? Go ahead and walk up & down the aisles in the better viewing areas. You will find some selfish people who are taking up WAY more space than they need. Just ask if the spot is free

    An amazingly beautiful culmination of all the Walt Disney classics with fireworks, water fountains & Disney characters. A MUST SEE!! Get there at least an hour early for best seats!!

    Very cool, I'm 23 and I almost cried watching all my favorite princess with their princes, Mickey Mouse fighting villains, and hearing the music from my happy childhood!

    Favorite night time show at Disney! Make sure to get seated at least an hour in advance. Usually shows two times a night, and the later time is much less crowded.

    Get there early on nights with one show. Best bet is to stay late and attend the second show if available.

    Hands down my favorite show at WDW. Beware the idiots who think it's kosher to "reserve" 2 rows of prime seats for their way-too-big family (stop having kids). It's not. Tell a cast member.

    awesome show! they will cancel or delay based on weather (which is a lot during a florida summer). be prepared to wait. special effects are better here than epcot but the music is better at epcot
  • Donna H.

    Use the Fantasmic dinning plan. You don't have to get there as early for good seats because you sit in a reserved area. 45 minutes before the show put us in the Sebastian section.
  • Hunter K.

    Pro tip: at the end of the show, go to the very bottom (closest to the water) of the amphitheater first and go to the very right. Easiest and fastest way to leave!

    question IS... W/ the magicbands & only 3 fastpass allowed, do you chose Fanrasmic?? I say yes along with TSM and Rock & Roller Coaster. ToT usually will have wait times drop to 15-20 mins around 4pm
  • Dave A.
    Dave AlbertsonAugust 26, 2011
    Show is over the top awesome. Did the dining package but wasn't happy my "reserved" seats were in the corner & had to walk a mile to get to my already crowed seating area. Shouldve waited online.

    Its really a great show if you love the characters also you may get a slight mist and the glow with the show ears really enhance the experience
  • John C.

    Get there early! The amphitheater will fill up. If possible, sit where the wind doesn't blow to you as you may get damp from all the mist from the water screens!
  • James D.

    People never sit in the very front rows as they don't want to get wet. You want a great view and great experience ? Go to the front you won't regret it!

    Make sure you look for Frollo, the villain from "The Hunchback of Notre Dame." This is perhaps the only remaining reference to "Hunchback" left in the Disney parks.

    Don't be tempted by all the "smart" people leaving once the Steamboat Sequence starts - you are going to miss the best at the very end!!

    The dining meal plan is a very good deal. Also the preshow hosted by Heather, Hunter, and Garrin is a fun, albeit a little campy, way to pass time while waiting in your seat.

    Here is your plan: 1. Stay Chill (have a few cold ones if need be) 2. Walk in casual 3. Go to second show 4. Eat before and finally 5. Make your damn kid use the legs nature gave him!

    Do yourself and everyone around you a favour. Turn your cameras flash OFF! Your pictures will turn out 100x better and you won't annoy those around you!

    Make a dinner/lunch reservation that includes VIP seating. You can show up 30 minutes before the show and still get a seat!

    Entrance commonly opens up to 1.5 hours before the show begins. Arrive early for center seats (benches). Amphitheater features concessions and restrooms.

    Amazing live show to close out a day Studios! Pyrotechnics, water, and laser effects, and live performers bring one of Mickey's incredible dreams to life!
  • Marc Andre R.

    Just get a dinning experience tied to your schedule and you can enjoy the Fantasmic show, 15 minutes prior, on the front row!

    If you use a wheelchair and are deaf their is only one space for reflective captioning available. This needs to be changed. Have 3 deaf friends who also use wheelchairs

    Great seating in the back for ECV, but getting in here is tricky as people like to step in front of the chair. Then they get mad if their ankles get hit. Think about it people...

    Second showing is much more manageable. Crowded but still plenty of seats. Really great show. Not a bad seat in the house from what I could tell.

    Get there an hour early to get prime seats! It gets crowded fast! Make sure to check what nights it on. Not on every night.

    Get yourself a "Glow with the Show" ear hat and be part of the show. It also works with the fireworks at Magic Kingdom.

    Really a hodge podge of Disney scenes projected onto a wall of mist. Some nice moments but not as spectacular as Magic Kingdom fireworks show.

    GET THERE ASAP! and it doesnt really matter where you sit, the views are equally as good as long as youre not completely squished in between people.

    It is packed tonight! December definitely not the best time to come, so cold! But definitely worth paying the dinner package for the reserved seats

    Get here early for good seats. They have a fun preshow starting a half hour before fantasmic so it won't seem like a long wait!

    Getting a seat can be very stressful. Just stay calm and remember where you are. Oh and get here early if you want to avoid a little stress.

    Dining package is a JOKE. Don't bother purchasing it with the participating restaurants. Buy your tickets to the show separately and get to the entrance early so you can get a good seat & save money.

    Great show! But if you don't like standing in a huge crowd in the dark for 30-60 minutes before, you may want to have a few drinks first.

    As soon as Mickey comes out, leave the auditorium to beat the crowd and you can watch the fireworks from the parking lot.
