    If I have dinner reservations at sci-fi dinner at 5:30 will I make the 7:00 fantasmic show?

    Hello Bridgette and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Can you make it to 7:00 showing of Fantasmic! and enjoy a meal scheduled for 5:30 at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater? My short answer is no. Here is why- Fantasmic! is extremely popular and the stadium often fills to capacity. If this is a must-do, I recommend arriving at the stadium one hour before show time. If you are visiting at a very slow time you might be able to arrive 30 minutes before the show starts. But be warned... the last time I tried that I was extremely disappointed as there were no seats available.  Even with a FastPass+ for this spectacular show you are urged to arrive at least 30 minutes before show time.  I think it is best to allow at least one hour for table service meals.

    If viewing Fantasmic! is important to you, I would suggest enjoying lunch at Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater and then grabbing a quick service dinner before heading over to see Mickey conquer the bad guys.

    I hope this helps with our planning! If you have more questions, come on back to the Panel- we love to help!

    See ya real soon!
