    We will be at DW in late Jan. 2015. I have been trying to book a Fantasmic Dining Package, preferably at Mama Melrose for Sun., Jan. 25th, and it always says no times available (all day long for any restaurant). Why no reservations? What are my options?

    Hi Kelly,

    I'm sorry you haven't had any luck making Fantasmic! Dining Package reservations.  I checked online myself and do agree that currently there aren't any Dining Packages available.  Since Advanced Dining Reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance and there are a limited amount of Fantasmic! Dining Packages available and it seems that they have all been booked already.

    I always suggest to continue checking for availability since other Guest's plans change and some availability might pop up.  In the meantime you can still make reservations at Mama Melrose Ristorante Italiano for that date, you just wouldn't receive the Fantasmic! VIP seating vouchers that are distributed to those who have the Fantasmic! Dining Package.  Also, do not be worried because you can still attend the Fantasmic! show.   You have the choice of using the standby queue or making FastPass+ selections for it.  If you choose to use the standby queue for Fantasmic!, I recommend arriving no later than 60 minutes prior to show time.  I personally like to bring snacks or a to-go meal with me and use this time as a good way to unwind and recap my day's events with my family.  Here is a tip from my experience:  If 2 Fantasmic! shows are offered that evening, the second show tends to be much less crowded.

    Have a MAGICAL day Kelly!  Your FastPass+ selection window will be here soon!
