    Hello again. Wanting to book Fantasmic dinner package at Mama Melrose as dinner but the last time showing is 3pm. Am I able to book this for dinner or do we have to have lunch? Would rather this be dinner to go with our other plans.

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kerry!

    Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano is one of my family's absolute favorite Walt Disney World restaurants! We try to book the Fantasmic! Dining Package whenever we can, too. So good!

    A 3:00 seating may seem odd at first, but you'll see the beauty of that time shortly. First, you'll be able to enjoy the same appetizers, entrees and desserts at either lunch or dinner, so the time of your seating will not change what you are able to order. Dining at that hour gives guests a break in the middle of what is often a busy afternoon, allowing for a refuel when you might need it most.

    Family favorites include Crispy Calamari with dipping sauces (yum!), Fresh Mozzarella and Vine-ripened Tomatoes (double yum!) and Shrimp Campanelle (triple yum!). Truly, you will be so happy that you dined here, it may soon become a family favorite for you, too.

    By the time you are finished your meal, it will be after 4:00, and could even be closer to 5:00, if you choose to dine at a more leisurely pace. When you head back out to the park, many guests will then be sitting down for dinner, so you may notice lines are a little lighter, too. Win-win!

    When it's time to head to Fantasmic!, you'll get to enjoy VIP seating; what a great way to cap off the perfect day at Disney's Hollywood Studios!

    Keep in mind that as guests finalize their travel plans, they may cancel reservations, enabling you to book something that was not available previously. A later Fantasmic! Dining Package may be yours after all.

    Send more questions as you plan, Kerry; we love to help!
