    I'm thinking about doing the Fantasmic Package and eat at the Brown Derby when my family and I go next may. What time should I make the dinner reservation? I just want to make sure we have enough time. Thanks!

    Hi, Amber!

    What a wonderful plan!  We love the Fantasmic! Meal Experience, and you're going to really enjoy your meal at The Hollywood Brown Derby, too.

    Check to be sure which date you'll be attending this great event, then look to see what time the show you'll be seeing will take place. I would make reservations as early as possible, just to be sure you can have a leisurely meal without having your eyes on the clock at all times. Otherwise, I'd make the reservation at least 2 1/2-3 hours prior to showtime. This will allow you to eat, get the check and still get to the venue on time.

    Extra time is never a problem, as you can fill in the gap with a ride on attraction or a little shopping. Not enough time? Nerve-wracking! (And who wants added pressure on vacation? :-)  )

    Have a wonderful trip! Send more questions as think of them; I love to help!
