    Hello, love this panel! Wondering if Fantasmic can be pre-selected with the new FP+ technology (traveling in 2014, so should be rolled out to all guests by then)? And if so, pros/cons vs Fantasmic dining package? Would love to make ADR somewhere new! TY!

    Hi, Alyssa!

    Well, the Panel loves you, too! :-)

    Regarding FastPass+ options which may be available to you for your 2014 trip, selections may include firework and parade viewing areas, shows, Disney Character Greetings and more. Like any offering, features such as FastPass+ will evolve over time based on Guest and Cast feedback. Additional features are in development and will be introduced in the future.

    That being said, I'd book a Fantasmic! Dinner Package as soon as they become available for the dates of your stay. This way, you'll have the preferred seating option for the spectacular show no matter what the status of FastPass+. I always book our Fantasmic! Dinner Package Advanced Dining Reservation at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano. The food there is always delicious, and our family members and friends can find a new favorite on the menu, no matter how picky or demanding their palate may be. Frankly? If you can get a Fantasmic! Dining Package, I can't think of downside. It's a great deal!

    Send another question telling me if you're on the Disney Dining Plan, too. There's a little-known perk for those on the DDP who book a Fantasmic! Dinner Package at Mama Melrose's. I'd love to let you know all about it!
