    Are all fantasy’s tickets together with a dinner? If so what is the best restaurant if these fir little kids? On the same note of dining, where would suggest for a more upscale family dinner ? (Looking fir something special fir our last dinner at Disney)

    Welcome back again Cible!

    It's lovely to see you again and I hope that I can help! I see that it looks like you are doing some research! Fantasmic! is my favorite nighttime spectacular ever! The perfect way to end a day at Disney's Hollywood Studios is to grab a seat and experience the music, magic, and surprises from all of your favorite characters! Entry to this show is included with your admission but seats are first come-first served. One of my favorite ways to experience this show is to grab a Fantasmic! Dining Package as it guarantees I get a nice meal and a seat in a great spot for this show! 

    There are five different restaurants to choose from and if you have little kids my top choice would be to grab a reservation for your family at Hollywood & Vine! It's a buffet dining experience so you will find many food choices for every member of your family. Whether you choose breakfast, lunch, or dinner there will be a yummy meal with some special character interactions. I have done the Fantasmic! Dining Package before at Hollywood & Vine and received a voucher for Fantasmic! that let us be able to avoid the long line of people who may have been waiting sometimes an hour to enter the show. We just walked right in about 15- 20 minutes before the show started with some snacks and were directed to a reserved section with a great view of the show! Remember that all dining reservations must be secured 60 days before your arrival and if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel you can book your dining reservations for your entire stay (up to 10 days) on the 60th day before your first day of arrival. This is so convenient as you get a chance to make these reservations before many Park attendees. 

    There are some great places that your family can enjoy for your last dinner at Walt Disney World Resort and I would like to suggest a few:

    -California Grill - This restaurant is located on the 15th floor of Disney's Contemporary Resort and what makes this place special is not just the delicious menu but the amazing view of Magic Kingdom Park. If you time it right you may find the lights dim, and music change, and from your seat see the amazing Happily Ever After fireworks.
    -Narcoossee's- Located at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa this newly renovated restaurant will be opening soon and it's another amazing meal and view combo. It sits over the Seven Seas Lagoon and has great views of Magic Kingdom Park. Again, if you time it right you may be able to catch a viewing of fireworks and even the Electrical Water Pageant! There is a wrap-around porch with so many windows and I can just imagine your family having a lovely relaxing dinner here.

    -Sanaa- Head over to Disney's Animal Kingdom Resort and look for Kidani Village. It is here that you will find an Indian/African fusion restaurant with views overlooking the savannas. Last time we ate here while watching the giraffes! 

    Let me know if you have any more questions! Happy Planning!
