    I have booked the Fantasmic Package & have reservations @ Mama Melrose's for 12:00. My family also loves the 50's Primetime Cafe so I booked dinner for 7:00. Do you think that will be cutting it too close to make it to Fantasmic?

    Hi Laurie, I can't answer your question with 100% certainty because Fantasmic starts at different times during different times of the year. Without knowing your travel dates, I don't know when Fantasmic will be starting at the time of your visit. But I can give you some general guidelines. Even with a Fantasmic package voucher, you should plan to be at the Fantasmic theater 30 minutes prior to the start of the show. I'd allot 10 mins from the time you're at the door of 50s Prime Time to get to the Fantasmic theater. The length of your dinner is a bit up to you, it will be shorter if you just get an entree than if you get drinks, appetizer, entree, and dessert. However, most in-park table service meals can be accomplished in about an hour. All this information means that, with a Fantasmic Dining Package voucher in hand, if you book your dinner about 1.75 to 2 hours before Fantasmic starts and you should be fine. Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you need additional assistance.
