    I have a Fantasmic DP @ H&V for 8/11 as our last night. We have to eat @ 3:50 for the show. Is this really a good value? The dining is expensive, & I've heard that I still have to wait in the general line 4 show, so where is the adv to the dinin

    Hi, Corinne!  The advantage to the Fantasmic Dining Plan is that you will still be entitled to reserved seating once you are in the theater.  This allows you to arrive at the theater later than those people without the dinner package who are sitting in general seating and hoping to get a good seat.  The people on the dinner package will be able to walk up 15 minutes before the show and still be assured good seating in the reserved section.

    My family loves Fantasmic!  We try to never miss the show when we are there, and we have waited more than an hour in line without the dinner package to try and make sure we get good seats for the show (not that there's a bad seat in the house, but we like to get there early).  You have to decide if the dinner package is a good value for your family, but it always has been for us.  I think we will still book the dinner package when we can to take advantage of the reserved seating section.

    I hope you have a wonderful trip!
