    Family of 3 visiting DHS on 5/31/11 with a 6:10 ADV at Mama Melrose's. Fantasmic pkgs are gone for this date, so I'm wondering if this time will allow us to have an unhurried dinner and still get to the waiting area in time to get a decent seat.

    Hi Steve!

         Well, I think that I might have some good news for ya!  I have found that a typical table service meal at Walt Disney World takes approximately one hour and 15 minutes.  Since your reservation is at 6:10, let's say that you don't actually get seated until 6:30.....Yes, even with ADRs, you sometimes have to wait!

         Sooo, that would have you done eating by 7:45, which will give you enough time to get in line an hour before show time.  Quite honestly, I'm not crazy about the preferred seating that you get with the dinner packages anyway - I think that you can snag a better seat by waiting in line!

    Best of luck and enjoy a slice of pizza for me!

    Much pixie dust,
