    We just booked our 5th WDW trip and I was wondering if we can use a Table service credit for The ROL Dining Package and the Fantasmic! dining package? That seems like a wonderful way to use the credits!! This panel is great for getting answers!!

    Hi Daniel!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am very happy to confirm that you can use your Disney Dining Plan for both the Rivers of Light: We are One Dining Package at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park, and the Fantasmic! Dining Package at Disney's Hollywood Studios.  I agree with you that this is a really good use of credits, as for no extra charge you can enjoy a wonderful meal at a time of your choosing (subject to availability), followed by premium seating in a reserved section to watch either of these fantastic shows.  You may choose from two restaurants for Rivers of Light: Tusker House (requiring one Table-Service credit) or Tiffins (requiring two Table-Service credits).  For Fantasmic! you have the choice of three restaurants: Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano (one Table-Service credit); Hollywood & Vine (one Table-Service credit); The Hollywood Brown Derby (two Table-Service credits).  You can use the Disney Dining Plan or the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan for all reservations.  

    If there are two shows scheduled on the day of your booking, your dining reservation will confirm the time of the show you have seating for.  I have enjoyed the Fantasmic! Dining Package many times (dining at The Hollywood Brown Derby) and would definitely book this again.  It's also really nice to skip the standby lines for the show and arrive at the seating area with a much-reduced waiting time.   

    All reservations for these packages can be made online, up to 180 days in advance, and please ensure you select the 'dining package' for each event, and not just a reservation for the restaurant alone.  You may also call (407) 939 3463 to make your reservation.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation to Walt Disney World.
