    We have booked Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano Lunch Fantasmic 1st Show in May 2017 at 12:10. I'm not sure when the show starts/ ends and how long to allow for the meal and show in my touring plan. Thanks for your help!

    Hi Jennifer!

    You are going to love Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano at Disney's Hollywood Studios. We eat here every trip and it's my husband's favorite restaurant in Disney World.

    You can plan on approximately one hour for the lunch, from the time you check in, eat, pay and leave. The Fantasmic! Dining Package is a great way to ensure you have VIP seating for Fantasmic! that night and have a delicious meal at the park. You will get a meal that includes an appetizer, entree, dessert and non-alcoholic beverage, then at the end of the meal you will be given your VIP voucher for the Fantasmic! Show that night.

    You will want to arrive at the Fantasmic! entrance 20-30 minutes prior to the show to get into your seat. You can check out the times of Fantasmic! on the day of your visit on the Times Guide or on the My Disney Experience app. The show lasts 30 minutes, but you will want to factor into your touring plan the 30 minutes prior to the show and about 15 minutes after the show to get out of the crowds and back into the park.

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
