    We are going to Disney Dec. 2-8. How early can I make dining reservations? If we go to Fantasmic, what is the best restaurant to go to?

    Hello Renee!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    Disney’s Hollywood Studios is one of my favorite theme parks, and I never miss the chance to watch Fantasmic! I love the fact that a Fantasmic! Dining Package is available for Guests, as this is the best and most delicious way to secure seating for this amazing show. If you would like to book the dining package and are visiting with little ones, I recommend making a reservation at Hollywood & Vine for a character meal filled with fun! Disney Junior friends join Guests for breakfast, and Minnie and friends are your hosts for dinner and, beginning September 4, lunch as well. Are your children older? How about a delicious traditional Italian meal at Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano? This location pleases the appetites of even the pickiest of eaters. For a romantic dining experience with your better half, make reservations at the The Hollywood Brown Derby. You are going to love this incredible signature dining location, their delicious menu and impeccable service.

    Reservations are highly recommended and can be made up to 180 days in advance online or calling (407) 939-3463. The earliest you will be able to dine depends on meal periods offered by each dining location as well as available times at the time or reservation. You can decide to have breakfast at Hollywood & Vine, for example, or go for an early dinner at The Hollywood Brown Derby. As you plan, please note that you must arrive at Hollywood Hills Amphitheater 20 to 30 minutes prior to showtime.

    I hope this helps you while planning! Please, stop by real soon with more questions.
