    Hi Lindsey, previously you told me to do the Fantasmic! Dining Packages and watch that show at 8pm. This way I can see both the show and Fireworks. Which restaurant should I pick for 8pm reservation? Will it be enough time? i.e. 8pm dinner, 9pm show starts

    Hi Aloysius!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm glad my recommendation is helping make your Disneyland Resort trip a little more magical!

    With the Fantasmic Dinner Package, you have a couple different dining options. The first option, and my personal favorite, is Blue Bayou Restaurant which is inside of the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction! As part of the Fantasmic Dinner Package you can book a reservation here anytime after 4 PM. Your second option will differ depending on the date. River Belle Terrace is traditionally the other option, and like Blue Bayou Restaurant, your reservation for this will also begin anytime after 4 PM. River Belle Terrace will be undergoing a refurbishment from  September 5 through November 20, 2017, so if you are visiting during that time your other option will be Cafe Orleans. Cafe Orleans is only an option during the refurbishment window and these reservations will be available anytime after 11:30 AM. 

    When I had answered your first question I believe Fantasmic was showing at 8 PM, so I didn't mean the dinner had to be at 8 PM, sorry for the confusion! For the next couple weeks it looks like Fantasmic is showing at 9 PM with the fireworks at 9:25 PM (please confirm for your specific date). Your dining reservation can be anytime after the times stated above for each restaurant. During your reservation, you'll receive a voucher that will get you into the reserved seating later that evening! Please let me know if you have any other questions.
