    We are planning to eat at the Brown Derby before seeing Fantasmic. In the past, we've arrived at Fantasmic an hour before the show starts to get a seat. Given that, I'm not sure what time to make the Brown Derby dinner reservation to alllow enough time?

    Hi Lisa!

         I just had the opportunity to eat at the Hollywood Brown Derby for the first time and I loved it!  I really liked the atmosphere and the food as well.  I would recommend making your Hollywood Brown Derby Advanced Dining Reservations about 3 hours before Fantasmic is scheduled for that particular night.  Typically, it can take between 1 to 2 hours or more for a Table Service Meal in Walt DIsney World especially if you want to avoid feeling rushed during your dinner.  If you plan for 2 hours for your meal and then around an hour to wait in line to get good seats for Fantasmic, then 3 hours will be just right with a little wiggle room.

    I hope that you have an enchanted evening in Hollywood Studios on your next Walt Disney World vacation!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
