    My question is addressed to Andrea, while reading a question from another guest, you had said that people using their ddp for fantasmic package can get a secret perk? Can you tell me what it is? Thanks, I have learned so much from reading this site.

    Hi, Jolene!

    I am so glad that you've found our tips useful! We all enjoy helping Guests make the most out of each and every decision made when planning their vacations in Walt Disney World. We love to help!

    Regarding using the Disney Dining Plan when paying for a Fantasmic! Dinner Package at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, the little-known perk is that each Guest on the DP / Dinner Package is given an appetizer. We love appetizers so much more than dessert, but usually are on the DP which does not include apps. When you take a look at the menu at Mama Melrose's, you'll see this perk makes me so happy. Their fresh mozzarella and vine-ripened tomatoes made my then-picky tween-aged daughter eat every morsel on her plate. Their calamari is so tender, and presented with several delicious dipping sauces, my 11-year-old can't get enough of them.Yum. Yum. Yum!

    To be honest, our whole family is disappointed if I don't book a Fantasmic! Dinner Package at Mama Melrose's for a week trip to WDW...and much of that is due to the great food at Mama Melrose's! (The rest is, of course, for the VIP seating at Fantasmic!)

    Send more questions as you think of them, Jolene; we love to help!
