Got my official Fantasmic seat cushion today when I did the dinner package at the Blue Bayou.
So here are my thoughts on the experience. I used to book the dessert package and compared to the dining package I rather do the dessert because there are nice chairs for you to sit on with a great view. This new dining package makes you sit on the floor. My legs were cramping up and were dead numb by the time the show ended. It was very uncomfortable for me. The view was good, but I prefer the chairs when I did the dessert package. By the way, the dessert package is no longer offered. Also, be very careful about the instructions given to you where to go to check in. Our server told us to go one place, but the crowd control castmembers sent us to another. Very frustrating because that whole area around the river is so crowded and bottlenecked. Finally, the cast members at the check in area will not let anyone in the seating area until the exact check in time. Plus they tell you that you can't wait by the barrier gate because it will block the thin walking area guests have to get by. Finally have tons of patience because there is only one check in entrance with one cast member checking fast pass tickets. Mind you he or she has guests coming in from the left, the right and in front of him or her to squeeze in through the one access point. I had a chance to experience this and probably won't do it again or wait for a very long time to do it again. Sorry for the long post but wanted to answer some of the questions I saw after my original post. Love to hear your feedback.  - anthony91765   86.8 #3634 2-2-15 12:00AM Like(2)  Reply

One other question though if anyone knows: if we are in virtual queue for a ride and then decide to switch to another ride, is that possible? Like could I go to a kiosk and switch from Space to Peter Pan? I would assume the virtual queue would be restarted which is totally fine. I'd just like to think I could because theoretically you could leave an actual line in favor of another. - missmimi90  1769.7 #78 11-20-14 4:31PM
I was told yes you can switch ride. Your time just starts over. Scenario was typically in reference to autistic child that often changes their mind. We will see how all of this works in practice. I've heard they run into issues sometimes with this similar system already in place for wheelchair guests. - DLKenCA  2057.2 #62 11-20-14 4:59PM

Keep in mind the DAS is now a bit closer to the way they operated the wheelchair. People in wheelchairs are considered "mobility" and have something slightly different. Spend a few minutes in City Hall or Chamber of Commerce. They can provide a map and instructions. It is "similar" but you normally have to go to the ride to get a return time. - DLKenCA  2057.2 #62 11-20-14 11:07PM
Question, what's DAS? - TakeMeToNeverland19   13.3 #8243 11-21-14 7:17PM Like  Reply
DAS stands for disability assistance service. It's for those with disabilities where standing in a normal stand by queue may not be feasible for any number of reasons. So those with individual situation can apply for a DAS which allows the person with said dosability and their party to wait in a virtual queue (I.e. If there is a stand by wait time of 45 minutes for Peter Pan, the DAS holder and their party can get a return time of 45 minutes for Peter Pan and then go to the attraction after they have waited the 45 minutes and ride the attraction). - missmimi90  1769.7 #78 11-21-14 7:46PM
This isn't the same thing as the wheelchair pass, is it? The going back after the wait time sounds like it - TakeMeToNeverland19  13.3 #8243 11-23-14 2:39AM

Tagged in: TIPS  
I've got a few... 1) Our Target usually has the Smart Water bottles they sell in the parks for $1. I buy at least 3 for each day we will be there and freeze them. That way they stay cold all day. I carry one and put the others in the backpack. 2) The picnic area lockers! These lockers are bigger than the ones inside the parks and the esplanade and you don't have to take the stuff through bag check. You could fit a small ice chest in one of the large lockers and keep cool items. We once mixed up some tuna and kept that, bread (well, we forgot the bread which resulted in some creativity lol), snacks like Cheezits, etc. Then you can keep all your meals in there and the patio is usually pretty empty. PLUS you're still on property!!! 3) I got this one from MW. If you have a Target Red Card, purchase Disney gift cards with it when you can. You'll get 5% off (plus whatever you get on your AP) 4) I have several apps on my phone that I use to build up rewards. I then redeem those rewards for Starbucks gift cards that can be used in all the park locations. We've gotten a whole meal for free with this! The sandwiches they have at the DCA location are yummy! Here are my regular apps: Viggle (check in on tv), Shopkick (scan items on your phone when shopping), Mom uses Mango Health (check in when you take your daily medications, including vitamins!). I'm sure there's plenty more, but they're SUPER easy!!!Β  - SPandEvLover   3476.2 #34 6-5-14 3:28PM Like(8)  Reply

Definitely utilize Costco. People have this impression that I have all this $$ to come to Disneyland everyday and that couldn't be further from the truth. I SAVE money by being here. I bring my own drinks & snacks like Triscuits, trail mix, apples and other tough fruits that can withstand the backpack; also Cliff & other snack bars. It saves a ton of money & energy.  - apesandmonkeys   6521.6 #12 6-5-14 1:37PM Like(5)  Reply

Great tips thanks for posting this!  I think everything I was going to say was covered. Oh maybe one thing along with using Costco. If you're going to eat at restaurants then get the discounted gift cards to the restaurant of your choice there. They have $100 gift cards for $74.95. - AriellesMom   91.8 #3554 6-30-14 10:23AM Like  Reply
