    Are the Fantasmic Dinner Packages worthwhile? I was thinking of the Hollywood and Vine buffet specifically. Is the wait for the show truly shorter and/or the seat truly better or will I regret spending two of my sit down entitlements?? Thanks!

    Hi Susan,

    You have a great question and in one word I would like to answer  ~ Yes!  But if you are like me, you want to know the details, details, details.

    First, the Fantasmic! Dining Package is currently only 1 Table Service Credit when dining at either Hollywood & Vine or Mama Melrose Ristorante Italiano for lunch or dinner.  The Brown Derby is a signature dining experience and therefore is 2 Table Service Credits when dining there.  So my first reason why you should book the Fantasmic! Dining Package at Hollywood & Vine is because it is only 1 Table Service Credit and is a great value.  The next reason I love the Fantasmic! Dining Package is because you have access to a specially reserved seating section for viewing Fantasmic!  And it that's not enough, you do not have to show up until about 20-30 minutes prior to the show to be seated in this VIP reserved seating area.

    For evenings in which I will be viewing Fantasmic! I love having the Fantasmic! Dining Package.  It does not cost any more than the meal itself and gives my family guaranteed VIP seating that we do not have to stand in line for.  My only advice is to make sure you have a reservation for the package, because simply having a reservation to dine at any of these restaurants will not get you vouchers to be seated in the Fantasmic! VIP seating area.  To check availability now, click on this link for the Fantasmic! Dining Package.

    Thank you for your question Susan!  Please let us know if you have any more vacation planning questions, we are always glad to help.
