    You have been so much help so far. Thanks. Almost done with ADRs. Any idea when Candlelight Dinner Packages are available (opinions on Biergarten/Via Napoli). Is Fantasmic Dining worth it? Last question when can I book Tomorrowland Dessert Party?

    Hi, Sherry!  I'm anxiously awaiting the release of the Candlelight packages myself!  The timing has varied from year to year, but last year, they were available beginning at the end of June/beginning of July time frame.  So we shouldn't have too much longer to wait!

    I love the Biergarten.  Living in South Jersey, we have a lot of amazing Italian food at our fingertips, but we have nothing like the Biergarten here.  The buffet meal offers a lot of delicious German favorites, and the music makes the whole place merry!  We enjoy Via Napoli, and if you don't want to share a table with others, you may want to consider going Italian.  Biergarten has long, shared tables.

    I've done the Fantasmic! dining package a few times, and I think it's worth it during busier times.  There really isn't a bad seat in the theater, but the package offers a section of the theater that has been reserved, which may allow you to arrive a little later than you would without the package.  Even so, with the dining package, I recommend you arrive 30 minutes prior to show time.

    Typically, the Tomorrowland Dessert Party can be booked as soon as dates become available.  They have been releasing dates about two months in advance, so you really have to keep an eye on when the party might open up.  I wish I could be more specific, but as with the hours at the theme parks, the party dates and times are pretty fluid.

    I hope this gives you at least a place to get started with your holiday planning!
