    My family is going to WDW in September. We want to eat at 50s prime time cafe and then go to Fantasmic. What is the latest we should make reservations for the dinner so we can still make the show? P.S. I LOVE the momspanel!!! I have learned so much!

    Hello Holly!

    I like to err on the side of having plenty of time.  From the reviews I've read, people who use the standby line for Fantasmic! usually get in line about 60-90 minutes prior to the beginning of the show.  September calendars are not out yet but lets assume Fantasmic! is scheduled for 8:30 on the night you want to attend.  I would try recommend you make your dining reservation for 50's Prime Time between the 5:30-6:00 time frame which will give you time to be seated, have a relaxing meal and then head over to the Fantasmic! standby line.  (Adjust your times accordingly depending on the scheduling of Fantasmic!)

    I hope you have a Fantasmic! time!  :)
