    Hi, I was just reading that the Fantasmic Dinner Package will no longer include an appetizer. What if I am using credits from the Deluxe Dining Plan? Will it then include an appetizer, and since it is new in 2018, an alcoholic beverage?

    Hi Bess,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting that you have the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan. This is my family's favorite dining plan!

    As you have indicated, the Fantasmic! Dining Package for 2018 will only include the entrée, dessert and nonalcoholic beverage at select full-service restaurants. At Hollywood & Vine, which has a buffet, it would include the full buffet. Since you will have the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan, however, you should receive your additional entitlements which would include the appetizer and alcoholic beverage for guests 21-years old and over during lunch or dinner. I called to confirm with a cast member in Dining at 407-939-1947. Remember also to double-check the number of meal entitlements required for the restaurant you select with the dinner package. 

    To check the number of meal entitlements required, click on the website for the restaurant, then click on the link for "Some Dining Plans Accepted" and a popup chart should appear that shows you how many meal entitlements will be required at that restaurant. My family always reviews the restaurant menus prior to our visit. To check the menus, click on the link that says "View Menu" just under "Some Dining Plans Accepted."

    Bess, since 2018 has not arrived yet, I hesitate to guarantee how your dining plan will work at the restaurant you actually select for the Fantasmic! Dining Package. Having said that, however, we love the Disney Deluxe Dining Plan because we always have received our full meal entitlements. When you arrive to your resort hotel, just double-check with the Lobby Concierge!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
