    We have reservations to dine with an imagineer at the Hollywood Brown Derby and were wondering how long the lunch typically lasts so that we can plan the rest of our day accordingly.


    I'm super excited to hear that you have the incredible Dine with an Imagineer at the Hollywood Brown Derby experience booked for your upcoming vacation! That can certainly be a tough reservation to find, so congratulations! Not only is the setting quite lovely and the food absolutely scrumptious (Our Famous Cobb Salad...mmm!), but getting to meet a real live Disney Imagineer will be an experience that you'll cherish for years to come!

    While the length of the meal may certainly vary, I'd plan on it lasting around three hours. I wouldn't risk scheduling anything else close to your lunchtime, as you won't want to be distracted, worrying that you're going to miss an upcoming FastPass+ selection. You'll want to be able to soak up all of the incredible experiences that your Imagineer shares with you and hear their stories about their time with Disney. I know for me, personally, meeting Imagineers and hearing their passion for bringing the magic to life as well as learning about some of the stories and details that go into all of the decisions they make has been inspiring. The really incredible thing is that there are Imagineers hard at work on so many different aspects that you never know what kind of cool experiences you're going to learn about, and it will give you a fresh appreciation for all of the magic that happens behind the scenes at the Walt Disney World Resort. Have an absolute BLAST!

    I'm so glad that you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christine, and please come back and see us again if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation next spring!
