    I'm having trouble booking the Fantasmic Dinner Package. It's 180 days out & I booked all my other reservations online but I've called the Disney agents twice & they've just said to keep checking back. When is it released?

    Welcome to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kristen!

    Having all of your Walt Disney World Advanced Dining Reservations booked as early as possible is a great plan; well done!

    You are smart to try to secure reservations for the Fantasmic! Dinner Package, too. It's a family favorite! These dining packages do not open up at the 180 day window, though, so the advice to keep checking back is perfect. When I hope to secure one of these beauties, I book an Advanced Dining Reservation at the location where I'd like to dine that day--just a regular ADR. If I am able to secure a Fantasmic! Dinner Package as soon as they are released, I'll then cancel my original ADR, at no charge. For me, this ensures that we'll get to enjoy a meal at one of our two favorite restaurants at Disney's Hollywood Studios, The Hollywood Brown Derby and Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, regardless of my ability to secure the Dinner Package.

    The best way to keep an eye on Fantasmic! Dinner Package availability, Kristen, is to click on the Fantasmic! Dinner Package link above, then look at the blue box on the right of that screen: "Check Availability". Choose a restaurant, then advance the calendar dates until you find the month where some later dates are grey, rather than blue. Blue dates have been released; grey dates will be released soon.

    Best of luck in getting your family's Fanstasmic! Dinner Package, Kristen! You can do it! :-)

    Send more questions as you think of them, too; we love to help!
