    Have booked Fantasmic! Dining Package at Brown Derby but was told the latest res. they can give me for package is 5pm. We are booking for end July. Do you think later times will become available nearer the date? It seems very early as show starts at 9 pm.

    Hi Susan,

    An earlier dining time may become available at the Brown Derby for your July visit, but I wouldn't be concerned if it doesn't.  With a 5 pm reservation, you can enjoy your meal at your own pace and then go back to experiencing the attractions in Disney's Hollywood Studios until it gets closer to time for Fantasmic!  You should plan to arrive at the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater no later than 30 minutes before that evening's scheduled performance.  (Check the Times Guide as you enter the park to verify the performance schedule for the day).  Present the VIP vouchers you received as part of your Fantasmic! Meal Package at the Amphitheater, and the friendly cast members will direct you to the seats reserved for guests with dining packages.

    If you have your heart set on a later dining time, simply check back periodically with the Disney dining specialists at (407) WDW-DINE.  Be sure to check again the night before and the morning of your reservation as last minute cancellations do occur.  I'll keep my fingers crossed that the perfect time slot opens for your party.

    Wishing you a vacation sprinkled with extra pixie dust!
