Fantasmic! is finally returning to The Walt Disney World Resort!

And it appears that special dining packages will be returning along with it!

While sit-down shows like Fantasmic! have offered FastPass seating areas in the past, they also offer special dining reservations that give Guests access to a special reserved seating area. This “Dinner and a Show”-style package is available for only select sit-down restaurants in the same Theme Park as the show. Disney World Guests looking to take advantage of this situation are also given either a specially-limited menu at a set price per person.
According to Disney World’s Website, the package includes the following:
- An entrée and appetizer or dessert at select full-service restaurants or one (1) full buffet (where applicable), along with a non-alcoholic beverage
- One voucher for guaranteed seating at Fantasmic! in a reserved area
It should be noted that seating in the reserved area is still available on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests with dining packages will use the entrance located on Sunset Boulevard next to the Beauty and the Beast stageshow and are required to arrive at least 25 minutes before showtime. The seating voucher will be given at the time of your meal.
In the case of the new and improved Fantasmic!, Guests can access the reserved seating dining packages at the following in-Park restaurants for the following prices per person:
- 50’s Prime Time Cafe
- Hollywood & Vine
- Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano
- Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater Restaurant
- The Hollywood Brown Derby

It should also be noted that, unless specified otherwise, lunch and dinner times are usually made available, with only Hollywood & Vine offering a different price for breakfast reservations. It is also still unclear how Fantasmic! will be incorporated into Disney Genie+ or Individual Lightning Lane offerings.
Would-be Guests should also keep in mind that valid Theme Park admission and a Theme Park Reservation for the show day are still required to enter Disney’s Hollywood Studios and partake in the dining reservation and show.
