    My ADR call in date is Memorial Day. Will the phone lines be open at 7am as usual? Staying 8/23-8/30, no park hopper. Do Fantasmic dinner package or just stand in line for show and eat at Sci-Fi? Love your advice!

    Advance Dining Reservations can be made 90 days in advance of your Check In date. ADRs can be made by calling 407-WDW-DINE (407-939-3463).

    ADRs can be made seven days per week from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. and will be open to take your ADR call on Memorial Day. I believe the phone line does close on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve at 8:00 p.m.

    There is a new procedure for Fantasmic! dining packages. Reserved seats are held for Fantasmic! diners, however everyone now enters through the same entrance. Reportedly, seats are held 10-15 minutes prior to show time.

    Unless there are two shows and you are able to see the later Fantasmic!, I would definitely recommend the dining package. Even with the new entrance procedure, you still save your family from standing in that less than magical line. The line is especially unpleasant in the August heat.

    While my family loves dining in the cars at Sci-Fi, we find the Fantasmic! queue to be a waste of time. Dine at The Hollywood Brown Derby, Mama Melrose’s or the Hollywood  & Vine with the Fantasmic! Dinner package.
