    Want to see Fantasmic. The only night that will work for us is 10/30 the day we arrive. Flight lands @ 3:25 P.M. is that enough time to see this? Also sugg. for early lunch on 11/6 before going home- perfer a character meal not in a park Thanks


    OK, so with a 3:25pm landing, you should be able to get to your resort by, say 5:00/5:30. If you use on-line check in from home, then pick up your check-in packet at the resort before heading off to Hollywood Studios, you could be in line for Fantasmic by 6:00, or 6:30. That could be early enough to get a seat, especially at the time of year that you are visiting.

    Remember, however, that this is a pretty tight schedule. Don't set too high an expectation on attending that show, as there are a lot of variables that could go wrong and sink your plans, starting with your flight being late, to being stuck waiting for a bus, to a dozen other things. But if the stars align, you could pull it off.

    For that final early lunch before leaving, I would say that you will be hard pressed to find a character lunch outside a park. There is one at the Swan Resort, at the Garden Grove, which I am not a big fan of. What I would do is a late breakfast at Chef Mickey's, 'Ohana, or Cape May Cafe.

    Have a magical (and delicious) vacation!
