Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- I have the Fantasmic Dining Package and fast pass + for Fantasmic 8pm show. What are the benefits/cons to each and where is the seating? W/ the fast pass, do you still get good seats by showing up 30min before? I am trying to figure out which one to keep

- Hi Kelly!
I had the opportunity to experience both of these options in October, so hopefully I can give you some pretty current information!
During our trip the Fantasmic Dinner Package guests were
given seating in the very middle of the stadium right down to the front
row. Guests with Fastpass+ were seated to the right of dinner package
guests (as you look at the stage).
With the Fantasmic Dinner package, we arrived about 30 to 40 minutes prior to the show and we were able to sit
in the center of the stadium at the third row. We absolutely loved the view of the show from up front and center! The FastPass+ seats were also available close up, but they are slightly off-center. The view is still great, so if this option works better for you, I wouldn't hesitate to use FastPass+ option.
Your arrival time to the show really does depend on the time of year. During average times of the year, 30 minutes should be just fine, but if you there are peak holiday times, I would suggest arriving a bit earlier.
Hope this helps! Have a great trip!
