    Hello! I booked Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano Lunch Fantasmic 1st Show all 11:00am. Is there a show this early? Regards, JA

    Hey, Jaime! Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is an incredibly popular nighttime spectacular, so I am glad you have booked the Fantasmic! Dining Package. This package will give you the chance to enjoy a delicious meal before watching Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice battle Disney villains from a VIP seating area that evening. The 11:00 a.m. reservation time refers to the time of your meal. Be sure to check the calendar for the time that Fantasmic! will be shown on the day of your reservation. I always recommend that guests who have the voucher from the dining package still arrive for Fantasmic! at least 30-45 minutes early to claim their seats. While there is a reserved section for those with the package, there are no reserved seats for each person and you will want to claim practically perfect ones sooner rather than later!

    If you have added the Disney Dining Plan to your Disney Resort Vacation Package, then know that it can be used to pay for your Fantasmic! Dining Package. Lunch at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano with this Fantasmic! Dining Package requires one Table-Service meal entitlement per guest. No worries if you held the reservation with your credit card, as your Disney Dining Plan can be charged the afternoon of your meal. Once you complete payment that day, you will be provided with the VIP seating voucher that you will need to present to access the reserved seating area at that evening's showing of Fantasmic!

    I hope this information helps you plan a magical day in Disney's Hollywood Studios! Thanks so much for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions.
