    Hi Doug!Love ur great answers.Dinner reservations can be made in 8 days!Fantasmic! is showing @ 6pm when we want to go,can we make the dinner package for AFTER the show so we don't have to eat so early?If not, what time should we make r reservations 4?


    Actually no, I don't think you can make your reservation for after the show. Why?

    Well, Disney doesn't want people to book phony dinner reservations (I know that is not what you had planned, but others would!), for meals just to get the tickets, then listen to the crickets as over-staffed restaurants sit idle.

    Here is what I do;

    I book a 'late lunch' at the earliest hour that they will treat like a Fantasmic package meal. Typically that is 3:30 pm. Then I plan my dining to have a larger, later breakfast. With the appropriate mid-day snack to tide me over during those noon-time hours (and maybe a late sweet snack at the show!), I can get by on the two larger meals, and not have my day (or show) ruined.

    If, however, you just want to book the latest dinner possible and still make the show, I would suggest 4:00 pm. This assumes you get in line 1 hour before show time, and take 1 hour to eat.

    I hope that this helps?

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
