    Hi- we have an ADR for Chef Mickeys at 7:05 in July and would love to see Fantasmic same night-(preferably at 9) would this be possible?

    Hi there Laura!

    Chef Mickey's and Fantasmic! are two of my favorite things to experience when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort!  That being said, I do think it will be very difficult to experience both on the same night based on the time of your Advanced Dining Reservation. When I have dined at Chef Mickey's in the past, I encountered a small wait before being seated even though I had an Advanced Dining Reservation. Our dining experience has always taken approximately one hour once we were seated. You would then need to factor in travel time to Disney's Hollywood Studios, which could take between 15 and 40 minutes depending on if you travel by car or bus. Because seating for Fantasmic! historically begins 90 minutes in advance, I always suggest that Guests arrive at least 45 minutes to one hour prior to the start of the show to ensure getting a seat. I would recommend either trying to find an earlier Advanced Dining Reservation at Chef Mickey's or watching Fantasmic! on a different night. 

    I'm sorry if this was not the news you were hoping to hear. Please don't hesitate to stop by again with any additional questions that you may have. Best wishes for a magical trip, Laura!

    Happy Planning,
