Happy Friday! We’re excited to share that when Fantasmic! returns on July 17, guests will be able to enjoy a special dining experience with preferred viewing for the show! Reservations are available NOW – read on for details!

DINING PACKAGE OPTIONS

Blue Bayou Dining Package

We LOVE the Blue Bayou in New Orleans Square! The dining atmosphere is one of the BEST at the parks! The patio seating is set along the waters of Pirates of the Caribbean and it’s just amazing – a great date night spot!

Details:

  • Reservations for this dining package begin at 4:00 PM.
  • Includes a 3-course dinner – starter, entrée and dessert – adult price is $65.00 and kiddos ages 3-9 are $25.00.
  • Check out the menu items here.
  • Preferred seating/viewing for Fantasmic! is for the evening of the reservation (viewing area is NOT located at the restaurant, but along the Rivers of America).
  • Preferred viewing vouchers will be given to each guest who purchases a dining package once the meals have been paid for (kids 2 and under WILL also get a voucher). The voucher will note the viewing area location and show time. Typically the earlier the dinner reservation time, the earlier the show time (shows are at 9:00 PM, 10:30 PM and 11:30 PM). Keep in mind, viewing areas are STANDING ONLY with accommodations for guests with disabilities.

Hungry Bear Restaurant On-The-Go Dining Package

And there you have it, friends! Of course, we don’t have every detail about the food yet, but will be able to share more with you soon! We are just SO excited for the return of this amazing show on July 17 and hope some of you get the chance to see it on the night of it’s long awaited return! 🙂

Keep in mind, if you don’t book a dining package, you can always pull a Fast Pass for the show (we recommend doing so closer to park opening before they run out) to guarantee a good viewing spot!

  1. Thank you so much for the info!!!! My family from out of town will be coming that same week. Quick question, is the fast pass machine still located by the walkway going towards fantasyland?

    1. Hi! We aren’t 100% sure if the fast pass distribution will be along Big Thunder Trail walking toward Fantasyland again, but we think it will be! ☺️

  2. Hi ladies! Thank you for all your awesome posts!! Just have a few quick questions- so of the three restaurants that you can purchase dining packages to watch the show- Blue Bayou, River Belle, and Hungry Bear, the only one you can actually sit at to watch the show is River Belle? The other ones you can eat at the restaurant and then get the vouchers and return to a certain location that they tell you to to watch the show? Are you guaranteed a spot at this location that’s on the voucher or do you still have to arrive early to get a good spot?

    And if booking reservations at River Belle, we should probably book close to show time? But then that would be a pretty late dinner? Especially with kiddos.

    Ok thank you!! Csilla

    1. Hi! So you are guaranteed a spot for each of the vouchers from all 3 restaurants! There will be an arrival time marked on the voucher, but we usually always recommend arriving a little earlier than the arrival time just to be safe, especially since the show is returning after being gone for awhile – it’ll be a popular one! If you want to upgrade to the seating at River Belle, you would be eating at around 8 for the 9 pm show since that’s the specific time for that upgrade. Honestly, the only thing we are hesitant about with the River Belle seating upgrade is the walkway that runs between the restaurant and the Rivers of America. We assume they’ll keep it under control, but we aren’t sure if it will obstruct the view of guests sitting or what will happen! We assume since they’re letting guests upgrade to that special seating option, that they will have it all taken care of and make sure guests can see, but just a thought!

      1. I am curious about the seating premium area as well. My daughter loves the show at WDW so she really wants to see it here at DL. But we don’t want to see a bunch of heads and miss the show.

    1. In the past, they’ve been along Big Thunder Trail, but we aren’t sure if they’ll have them in the same spot when it returns! We assume they will!

  3. Thank you for all of this information!
    Is the preferred viewing area with the dining package the same area as if you pull a regular fast pass?

    1. Hi! We show all viewing areas in our most recent blog post! Feel free to check it out – it’s different than Fast Pass viewing. ☺️

  4. Do you know what the kids menu will have on it? I’m hearing the dessert for kids is butterscotch pudding only, which is an awful option, especially with that adorable Mickey dessert! I know my kids will end up with our desserts, which seems like a miss on Disney’s part.

  5. Hi! Thanks for all the info! Just reserved our Hungry Bear package and it said “1st Show” next to the reservation. Seems like a dumb question but you think that is a confirmation we got the 9 o’clock show? The dinner reservation is for 5:45. Couldn’t find any fine print or elaboration on the website. Thought maybe you would have the inside track. Thanks!

      1. Thank you! And do not apologize, the fact you responded at all is way cool! Thanks again. 👍🏻🐭

  6. Do you have any information on the Blue Bayou dining package including the seat cushion as it did previously in years past?
