Guests are constantly scrambling to catch a viewing of this show, especially since its recent return in November. So, as you can imagine, the seating can get a little crazy. One of the best ways to guarantee good seats is to sign up for the Fantasmic Dining Package, which costs a little extra but includes a meal and a seat at the show.

However, one Guest recently received a shocking email regarding their dining reservations made with the package:

According to the email Disney sent, Fantasmic! will unfortunately be temporarily closed for maintenance on May 1 and 2. On the bright side, any reservations made through the Fantasmic Dining Package will still be honored “at the regular menu price.”

If you’re planning on visiting Disney World’s Hollywood Studios with the sole focus of seeing Fantasmic!, be sure to avoid May 1 and 2.
