Fantasmic! is a nightly show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. One way to view this nighttime entertainment is with the Fasntasmic! Dessert & VIP Viewing Experience, and I tried this out for myself on a recent trip to Walt Disney World!

Fantasmic! Dessert & VIP Viewing Experience

First, you do need to make a reservation for this experience and can do so online or via phone. The current cost (including tax) is $39 per adult (age 10 and up) and $19 per child (age 3-9)*

When it’s time for your reservation, enter the Fantasmic! FastPass+ line to get to the check-in podium. There, Cast Members will direct you to a kiosk where you’ll pick up your treats! Every person on your reservation receives a light-up lanyard, light-up souvenir mug (alcoholic beverage for adults age 21 and older, fruit punch for everyone under 21), bottled water, and a box full of goodies!

The adult dessert box included chocolate-dipped strawberries, trail mix, assorted cheese cubes, rice chips, and 3 mini desserts: cheesecake, chocolate cupcake, and apple crisp.

We didn’t have any kids age 3-9 in our party, but they have their own kid-friendly snacks including chocolate pudding, vanilla cake, grapes, and popcorn.

Once you have your snacks, you are then directed to enter the area for reserved seating in the “Dining Package” reserved section of the amphitheater (seating is first come, first served, so if it matters to you to be close you’ll want to arrive early). Find a seat and then enjoy your snacks while you wait for the show to start!

The snacks were very good! The strawberries were of a good size, perfectly ripe, and covered in delicious chocolate. Cheese is one of my absolute favorite things in life, and the assorted cheese cubes did not disappoint!  And it’s probably no surprise then that the cheesecake was my favorite of the dessert trio.  I also liked that the snack box had a variety of sweet and salty/savory treats.

Overall, I was pleased with this special experience. I thought the snacks and beverages, as well as having a good seat for the show (without having to use a FastPass+) was worth the price. Plus, we all got a fun keepsake mug and lanyard to bring home as souvenirs, and this was something different for my family to do, having already seen Fantasmic! before.
