    We are going to be in Disney from 20 Dec to 29 Dec - 1st visit. On day 1 - I was planning to take in the Fantasmic Show at 6pm then go for dinner in the Rainforest Cafe in Downtown Disney (reservations for 8.30pm) - does this see like a good plan?

    Sounds good to me. The Fantasmic show is about half an hour long. Even with a crowded Fantasmic exit, you should be able to leave Disney's Hollywood Studios by about 7:00. There is no direct bus service from the theme parks to Downtown Disney. So you'll need to get yourself to any Disney resort and then transfer to a bus to Downtown Disney. I would either choose a resort that's very near DHS or one that's very near DD to make the transfer.

    If you want a resort near DHS, bear left after you exit the park to the boat launch area. Get on the boat and disembark at the first stop (which will likely be the Swan/Dolphin hotels). Then transfer there to a DD bus. Alternatively, you could bear right at the DHS to the bus loading area and get on a bus to Port Orleans or Saratoga Springs and transfer to a boat or bus there to Downtown Disney. Even if there is a short delay somewhere in there, I think you'll still be on time for your Rainforest Cafe reservation.

    Hope you have a great trip.
