    I have reservations for dining at the Hollywood Brown Derby Fantasmic 1st Show 4:20, and Tiffins Restaurant Lunch ROL 1st Viewing 12:15, and Disney Festival of Fantasy Dining Package 11:40. How well will we be able to see the shows while dining?

    Hi Robin,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am thrilled to hear that you have booked the Fantasmic! Dining Package at The Hollywood Brown Derby and the Rivers of Light Dining Package at Tiffins. 

    Dining packages are a great way to access reserved seating for the shows. While dining, you will receive your vouchers for the show. Our vouchers have indicated the entrance location and time we needed to arrive to the show's venue. To check the actual show times, check the Entertainment Schedule for the dates of your visit. Given your dining times, you will have time to experience other attractions in the parks until show time. The actual venue for each show is separate from the restaurant where you will dine. Once you arrive at the show's venue, you will need to select seats in the reserved section for dining package guests.

    When we last did the Rivers of Light Dining Package, we just barely made it to the amphitheater 15 minutes prior to show time. Luckily, we were able to secure three seats on the third row. For this show, I do recommend sitting a little closer. When I sat in the back on another visit, I missed some of the details in the show. At the Rivers of Light show, we love to take a photo with the Disney PhotoPass photographer. Normally, I can spot the photographer towards the front and will signal to ask her or him to come take our photo before the show.

    Robin, I trust that the Disney storytelling will captivate your family as much as it does mine. I love to see the wonder in my girls' faces as they watch!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
