There are currently several options, including dining at Blue Bayou or River Belle Terrace, as well as a Grab N Go meal from Hungry Bear. The cost per person as of this writing at Blue Bayou is $65 for adults, $25 per child, for River Belle Terrace it runs $45 per adult and $25 per child, and for the Grab N Go you'll be shelling out $29.99 per adult and $19.99 per child. Prices are before taxes and, for the table service restaurants, gratuity.
There is also an opportunity to upgrade the River Belle Terrace meal for an additional $15 per person. This choice has you arrive at 8:00 PM to be seated for your evening meal, then be able to stay seated for the show. I'm always a big fan of chairs at the end of a long Disney day, so this option appealed enough for me to give it a try.
Apparently tables are pre-assigned, so no need to show up early to try and get the perfect location.
As night falls you notice your decoration lights up. Added coolness.
The patio for dining at River Belle Terrace is somewhat elevated, but frankly not enough. There is a pathway to keep folks moving directly in front of the fencing. It was very distracting to have the constant flow of people walking in front of me during the show, as well as the bright lights of the cast members waving them along.
So, if you are really desperate for a chair during your Fantasmic! viewing, this is a great choice,. For pure views of the show (and fireworks after) you might want to try the regular option at River Belle, or the meal at Blue Bayou or the Grab N Go.

This recipe comes from the Disney A Merry Christmas Cookbook.
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup honey
1 tube refrigerated biscuits
Preheat oven to 350. Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
Place the butter in another small bowl and melt it in the microwave. Stir in the honey.
Separate the biscuits and roll each one into a rope. Coil each rope into a circle and pinch each end of the rope into the coil next to it so is secure (or else they will unravel).
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Allow them to cool completely before serving.
