    Thinking about doing MK during the day on Aug. 22nd and going to DHS at night for an 8:30pm show of Fantasmic. Are we better off eating a late lunch at 3:00pm or 4:00pm atMK or doing dinner at DHS? Any suggestions?

    Hi, Helaine!

    My family enjoys so many of the restaurants at Walt Disney World!  We always have so much fun planning out where we are going to eat.

    Here is my suggestion for your very fun filled day:  If you plan to do a quick service meal, then plan for a late lunch at Magic Kingdom at either Cosmic Rays, or my favorite, Columbia Harbor House.   If you are planning on a table service meal, then go for dinner at Hollywood Studios and make an Advance Dining Reservation;  I would choose Sci-Fi Dine-In Theater.

    Now I am going to give you a totally different option!   How about the Fantasmic Dining Package?  With this, you can enjoy a wonderful meal at one of three select restaurants in Hollywood Studios (I suggest choosing Mama Melrose's) and with it your receive VIP seating for Fantasmic!  You can book the Fantasmic Dining Package for either lunch or dinner (dinner only at Hollywood & VIne) but you must make Advance Dining Reservations by calling (407)WDW-DINE. 

    I hope I have given you some good options!  Good luck deciding!  If you have any other questions, let me know!

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
