    Have gotten conflicting answers from ADR as to whether the Fantasmic dining package is a fixed price or whether one can order ala carte. Can you clarify? Do you think the 6pm showing on 12/15 will be packed w/o the priority seating?

    Hi Greg.

    I would definitely highly recommend that you consider reserving a Fantasmic! Meal Package to secure yourself a viewing location for Fantasmic! during your visit to Disney's Hollywood Studios. The show is very popular and you'll definitely want to arrive at least 60 minutes early for seating without the reserved section included with the package, even for the earlier showing time.

    Fantasmic! Dining Packages are indeed a fixed price reservation, which varies depending on the location at which you reserve. If you're using the Disney Dining Plan, it's a particularly great value to reserve the package using a single Table Service Credit at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano. Here, you'll be able to order a la carte, from a selection of menu options which your server will review with you. You'll receive an appetizer, entree and dessert as well as non-alcoholic beverage all for the set price. It's a fantastic value and saves you some valuable time as you approach show time in the evening.

    If you choose Hollywood & Vine, your selections for dinner will be from the buffet. This location is also a single, Table Service Credit on the Disney Dining Plan or a set price.

    The Hollywood Brown Derby restaurant is a more expensive option or two Table Service Credits per person under the Disney Dining Plan. This location also includes three courses and a non-alcoholic beverage and is ordered a la carte.

    My highest recommendation is to reserve yourself a lunch or early dinner reservation at Mama Melrose's. It's by far my family's favourite dining choice at Hollywood Studios.

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your question Greg.
    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
