    We are planning to see the Fantasmic show on our first night; would you recommend to get the dinner package? If so, which restaurant is good and child friendly. I am traveling with a 2 year old. Thanks for your help.

    Hi, Jan!  Especially during very busy times of the year, I think the Fantasmic Dinner Package is a great idea.   You get to eat in a nice restaurant, and get to see Fantasmic with less waiting as compared to the stand-by line.

    You have 3 restaurants to choose from with this package:  Brown Derby, Mama Melrose, or Hollywood & Vine.   (Brown Derby counts as 2 table service meals if you are on the Disney Dining Plan.)   Of the 3, I recommend Hollywood & Vine.  It is the least expensive of the 3, and the only one that is a buffet.   With a 2 year old, this will probably make your dinner a bit nicer with not having to wait for your meals to come!   (With kids, I am all about speed!)

    For a great overview of the Fantasmic DInner Package, go to, select DINING across the top, and choose Fantasmic Dinner Package on the left side of the page.  I think you will find this to be a helpful page to read.

    To make reservations for this or any other dining, call (407)WDW-DINE.  Have a great vacation!
