    Seeing Fantasmic on 10/6/11. How long the show will take? Hoping to make a 9:55PM Dinner Reservation for 18 at the Polynesian. Will we make it? Are there any restaurants open for late dining? How long a lead time should I leave between show & dinner?

    Hi Christine! You shouldn't have any trouble making it to your dinner reservation at the Polynesian after Fantasmic. Fantasmic is scheduled for 8 p.m. on October 6. The show lasts about 30 minutes, and if you're sitting near the front of the theater, it can take you another 30 minutes to exit the theater. Even so, you'll still have an hour to get to the Polynesian. You can catch a bus directly to the Polynesian from Hollywood Studios. The ride takes about 20 minutes, and you may have to wait 15 minutes or so to board a bus, especially because there's often a line for the buses after Fantasmic. However, even taking all of that into account, you should be able to arrive on time for dinner at the Polynesian. If you don't want to cut it close, sit near one of the exits in the Fantasmic theater, which will allow you to leave more quickly and catch one of the first buses to arrive. Alternatively, if the line for the buses is long, taxis are available outside Hollywood Studios.

    The Polynesian has fantastic restaurants -- your group is going to love dinner there! Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions! We're happy to help!
