Many guests like to take advantage of the Fantasmic! dining package allowing them to enjoy a good meal earlier in the day and not have to feel rushed to get to the stadium to get a decent seat for the show. A couple years ago Disney’s Hollywood Studios decided to try a dessert party option with a buffet of desserts set up in a VIP viewing area at the back of the stadium, but that option didn’t last long.
Now in 2017 the idea of having tasty desserts while watching Fantasmic! has returned with the Fantasmic! Dessert & VIP Viewing Experience. Drawing inspiration from a similar service at Disneyland, guests who reserve the special package can arrive at the Fantasmic! stadium ahead of the first performance and pick up a pre-assembled package for desserts inspired by the show.
If you’re an adult you’ll receive sweet and savory treats including chocolate-dipped strawberries, cheesecake, a chocolate cupcake, apple crisp, and California trail mix. Kids will receive confetti popcorn, make-your-own “Worms and Dirt,” grapes, and a vanilla cake bite featuring Sorcerer Mickey. The package also includes a special drink served in a souvenir light-up cup (with an option for an alcoholic beverage if you’re 21-and-over).
Guests who book the package will be seated in a special VIP reserved viewing area for Fantasmic! Which makes this a great option if you don’t want to sacrifice an hour of your evening waiting around in the standby crowds.
What would you expect to pay for all this? How does $39 for adults and $19 for children ages 3 to 9 sound (including tax, natch). We suggest making reservations online or by calling Disney’s dining reservation line ((407) 939-3463). In the unlikely event the package doesn’t sell out for the evening ahead of time, they will accept walk-ups.

Do you know if the VIP area is the same as with the dining package?
