    Have 3:40 Fantasmic package reservations @ Hollywood Brown Derby on 4/24. Any suggestions on how/where to best use our counter service meal and snack option for the day (late breakfast/early lunch/afternoon snack?) Staying at Beach Club resort. Thanks!

    Hi, Amy! Love the Fantasmic Dinner package. Not so thrilled about the dining time, but the great thing about the Disney Dining Plan is that you don't have to use a snack, table service and quick service each day. You can snack it twice and do a table service one day and then do two quick service meals the next day. There are many combinations that can work.

    Here's what I'd do. On your way out of the Beach Club, grab a cereal bar or some sort of pre-packed snack from your room and munch on it on your way to the Studios in order to make it for park opening (and hit Toy Story Midway Mania first.) Later that morning, grab jumbo soft pretzels on Sunset (use one snack credit per person and pay $1 to get a communal cheese dip.) Bring your pretzels into the next showing of Beauty and the Beast and eat while you watch. That should decently fill you up yet help you be hungry when it's time to dine at the Brown Derby.

    After Fantasmic, head back to your resort and take a short detour to Beaches and Cream. Use a snack credit for a sweet treat to close out the day.

    Bon appétit!
