    Hi Moms! Iove the pannel! Is the Fantasmic dinner package worth doing? And if it is what restuarant would you recomend? What would be the biggest deal on this but still not expencive. thank you Moms!!!

    Hi Joanie!

    Thanks for writing, and for the great feedback!   I absolutely recommend the Fantasmic Dining Package if you intend to see the show.  As you probably know from visiting the panel, Fantasmic is extremely popular, and because it takes place in a theater (unlike the other nighttime spectacles, like Wishes and Illuminations), there is limited seating.  Therefore, anxious guests wanting to ensure a spot,  start lining up almost two hours before show time.  The dining package enables you to enjoy a great meal and reserved seats to the show.  You'll be able to bypass the crowds and head over to your seats shortly before it begins rather than hours before.

    There is no cost for the package other than your dining tab.  You can chose to dine at either The Brown Derby (signature dining), Mama Melrose (great Italian food & yummy sangria!) or Hollywood & Vine (American,casual, all you can eat buffet.)  In terms of pricing, Hollywood & Vine is probably the most economical, as it's an all you care to eat buffet, and includes dessert and soft drinks.  You can probably skip lunch the day of the show, as you will likely roll out of dinner!

    Fantasmic is truly magical, and a must-see on our Disney list!

    Have a great time!
