    Hello, We, family of 6, have a dining reservation at TRex DSprings at 5.00pm, is it feasible to have our meal and then get over (we'll be in cars) to Hollywood in time for the 8.30 Fantasmic show ? We really want to do both that night - is it possible?

    Hi Beverley,

    You really are trying to pack lots of fun and excitement into one evening! I think it's doable. I usually allow about 90 minutes for a meal at Walt Disney World. Even if you aren't seated right at 5, you can still dine leisurely among the dinosaurs at TRex and expect to be finished by 7 p.m. or so.

    It takes just a few minutes to drive from Disney Springs to Hollywood Studios under normal conditions. I'd allow a little extra time in case there is evening traffic. You also will need to have time to park, pass through security and get to the Fantasmic! amphitheater to find seats.  

    So I would do my best to leave Disney Springs no later than 7:15. I would also make a FastPass+ reservation for Fantasmic! if that is an option. 

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Beverley. Please let us know if we can answer any other planning questions for you for your upcoming vacation. And enjoy all the fun with your family!
