Fantasmic! Is Getting It's Own VIP Dessert Viewing Experience!


by: guide4wdw - Collin

As many of you may know, Fantasmic! has offered a dining package through select restaurants at Hollywood Studios for quite some time. The package would included both the cost of your dining and a reserved seating area at one of the nights Fantasmic! showings. While that experience doesn't appear to be going anywhere, Disney has just announced a new offering called the Dessert and VIP Viewing Experience.

The offering, which will cost $39 for adults and $19 for children and provide guests a snack box and reserved seating for the nights show. However, the seating does appear to be a typical reserved seat in the Fantasmic! "theatre". Guests will simply be guaranteed a seat by means of a special light up credential, and will be given there box to enjoy before and during the show. 

Adult Boxes include the following: 
-chocolate covered strawberries 
-a chocolate cupcake
-apple crisps 
-trail mix 
-cheese and crackers

Children boxes include: 
-pudding with chocolate cookie crumbles and worms 
-confeti popcorn 
-a vanilla cake bite 

Each participant will also receive a water bottle and a specialty drink offered in both alcoholic and non-alcoholic varieties. The specialty drink will be served in a one of a kind keepsake cup which the guests will take home with them. 

Reservations for the experience begin today and do have to be made in advance on the Disney dining site or through your preferred travel agency (Quote form down below for our top pick: Destinations to Travel).   

To me, this experience sounds like something that could increase an already prevalent issue. Fantasmic! remains at or near full capacity each night in the busy seasons, so this can only exaggerate the issue for standby guests. Between the dining package reserved seating combined with the new offering, it may require guests to arrive even earlier to guarantee a seat for the nighttime show.
