    I am looking at booking the VIP dining package (meal and show tickets) for fanstamic. If the selected meal time is 3pm, do you get tickets to go away and come back again for the show. Do i have to stay in the restaurant from 3pm until the show starts ?

    Hi, Sarah!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you so much for sending us your vacation planning question. We are here to help! 

    Congratulations on securing a Fantasmic! Dining Package for your upcoming vacation. This is truly the best way to ensure getting a good seat for this spectacular show while also getting a fabulous meal. 

    When you've completed your meal, your server will give you a voucher showing you are a Fantasmic! Dining Package Guest. You are then free to go and enjoy the theme park until the noted return time for the show. I would plan on arriving at the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater a little earlier than the suggested 20-30 minutes. Look for Cast Members holding up signs for dining package guest entry, you will show your voucher at that time. You definitely do not need to stay at the restaurant! 

    I would allow 60-90 minutes to dine; making the time period between completing your dining reservation and the show a perfect time to book a FastPass+ attraction! Especially if you select an attraction close to the show venue, The Hollywood Hills Amphitheater. The closest attractions would be Rock 'n' Roller Coaster Starring Aerosmith or The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror™. 

    I hope this is helpful, Sarah! Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
