    Will we have time to get to Fantasmic if we have a 6:55 Brown Derby reservation

    Hello Susan! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Dining at The Hollywood Brown Derby Restaurant was one of those Disney experiences that I had not been able to enjoy for one reason or another until just this past summer. Of course, I went for the Cobb Salad and it was as wonderful as I had anticipated.

    As far as planning your evening is concerned, it will really depend on the starting time of Fantasmic! when you visit Disney's Hollywood Studios Theme Park. Currently, Theme Park Schedules and Hours have Fantasmic! for an 8:00pm starting time from now until March 10th, 2019 when it is pushed back to a starting time of 8:30pm. During peak holiday season (such as the weeks around Christmas and New Year's day), the performance is scheduled for 9:00pm.

    If you are attending Disney's Hollywood Studios Theme Park on a night when Fantasmic! starts at 8:30pm or 9:00pm then I believe you will have enough time to comfortably experience both activities (albeit sitting may be limited by the time you arrive at an 8:30pm performance).

    If you are currently planning to attend an 8:00pm performance, I recommend that you try to alter your Advanced Dining Reservations for an earlier time.

    You should also look into the Fantasmic! Dining Package for your experience which will secure VIP seating for the event.

    Have a Magical Night!
