    I have been looking at doing the FDP when we are at Disney Dec of 2017 and looking at the different restaurants. I have noticed that 3:00pm seems to be the latest Mama Melrose's takes reservations for this is that correct?

    Hey, Ashley! Thank you so much for stopping by with this question. 

    Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano does tend to offer Advance Dining Reservations for the Fantasmic! Dining Package until mid-afternoon. Three o'clock is currently the latest time to search, but when I performed a search on various days, I did have some available times come up a tad later. In my experience, I have been able to secure a later dinner Advance Dining Reservation for Hollywood & Vine with this package.

    While dinner in mid-afternoon may not be an ideal time for all families to eat, there is a great alternative. All three of the Disney's Hollywood Studios dining locations that offer this dining package do offer lunch and dinner times. With a belly full of Pork Saltimbocca and Tiramisu from lunch, you may just need a quick bite to eat later that night before heading into the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater to enjoy Fantasmic!

    Ashley, since you are beginning plans a good year in advance of your visit to Walt Disney World Resort, I will suggest that you keep an eye on any updates to the Fantasmic! Dining Package. If you have any other questions, feel free to stop by and see us again!
