    thanx for answering my ?. due to young children and very busy time of the year do u recommend. dinner reserv at tony's to watch elec parade, fantasmic dinner package and dinner at restaurant to see illumination.


    No on Tony's, Yes on Fantasmic Dinner Package (but just barely), and Yes on Illuminations.

    I am not a huge fan of Tony's, and I think you are better off getting a quicker meal at Pecos Bills and then camping out early enough in the Frontierland area for a good view of the parade.

    While the Fantasmic Dinner Package seating is not the best in the theater, you do improve you chances of getting a seat, though you still have to get in line at least 45 minutes before show time. Grab a dinner at Mama Melrose's and then head over and you should be fine.

    As for IllumiNations, you may as well try to get a waterfront seat at Rose and Crown. But set your time so that you can finish dinner in time to get a good lagoon-side viewing spot, as your table in the restaurant can't be guaranteed to be one that has a good view of the show. And fireworks-viewing seating there is hard to come by.

    Ultimately you have to be prepared to grab a spot early, and entertain your kids during the wait. Hard to avoid that.

    I hope that this helps?

    Have a magical vacation!
