    Hi Moms! I'm planning about my 5th trip to Disney but 1st for my husband and my in laws for March 2014! We are wanting to do a Fantasmic Dining pkg at Mama's or Hollywood & vine. Does it cost a lot more than reg. prices to do this?

    Hello Ashley!  A Fantasmic Dining Package is a great idea - it will insure you reserved seating in the VIP section at the show without having to show up an hour in advance (they recommend 30-45 minutes instead).  I've got good news for you Ashley; there is no additional charge to book a Fantasmic Dining Package, but you will need a credit card to reserve the package.  There will be a $10 per person cancellation fee if you don't cancel 48 hours in advance of your reservation.  You can choose from three restaurants for the package; Hollywood Brown Derby, Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano and Hollywood & Vine.  Ashley, I highly recommend making your advance reservations for the Fantasmic Dining Package now, as they open up 180 days in advance and it does book up.  Just click the link I've provided and pick your date!  They also accept the Disney Dining Plan if you've got that - 1 Table Service credit per adult/child.

    Have fun planning this exciting 1st visit for your husband and his family.  Be sure to pick up 1st Visit celebration buttons, which they can wear throughout their Walt Disney World vacation.  You'll find them at Guest Relations at any of the four theme parks, or upon check-in at your Walt Disney World resort.  They are complimentary, and it's always fun to get extra greetings or recognition from the Cast Members or even characters!

    Please let me know if I can help you with any other planning questions you may have - it would be my pleasure to help you!  Have a magical day Ashley!
