Best Viewing Locations

The Fantasmic! is located along the Rivers of America and New Orleans Square. The viewing location won’t have proper seating for the show.

The best place to watch Fantasmic Disneyland 2024 is right in front of the stage along the Rivers of America, so come early to save a place.

The designated standby viewing is first come, first served, which is why we recommend arriving hours before the actual showing of Fantasmic.

Some of the best places to stake out include the following:

  • Walkways along Rivers of America
  • Around New Orleans
  • The bridge over Pirates of the Caribbean
  • Sections of the Walkway near River Belle Terrace
  • Nearby Haunted Mansion or Tom Sawyer’s Island
