    How long would you budget for Minnie's Holiday Dine & Fantasmic? We have 5 pm res and a 6:20-6:35 Fastpass+ for Voyage of the Little Mermaid. Can we make it? Also when will the star wars fireworks be, can we fit those in too (July 18)?

    Hi Amanda! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It sounds like you are in for a really great evening. Minnie’s Seasonal Dining at Hollywood and Vine (with a summertime theme) looks like a really great time! Not only will you be able to meet some of the best characters around but you will also get to choose from a variety of delicious food! It is great to have a reserved seat for Fantasmic!

    Whenever I am planning for a character dinner, I usually allow at least 90 minutes and sometimes up to two hours for the meal. You really want to make sure that you have enough time to eat all of the deliciousness but also meet all the characters. There is nothing worse than feeling rushed at dinner. If possible I would see if you could push your Voyage of the Little Mermaid Fastpass+ return time back by at least a half hour.

    Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular looks like it is going to be an incredible fireworks spectacular!
    Unfortunately at this time the schedule for the fireworks show is showing up as unavailable. Be sure to keep checking back often to make sure that you can end your night in spectacular fashion!

    I hope that you are able to fit in all that you dream of! Make sure to take some time to slow down and soak in all of that Disney magic though! Have a wonderful time!
