    We will be at WDW March 14-22. When will Fantasmic be showing? I could not find it on the site. Also, how much dining time should we plan for using the Fantasmic Dining Experience (with 2 kids), so that we get to the show on time?

    Hi Donna!

    Currently, Fantasmic! is scheduled on March 15, 18, 19 and 22 at 8:30 pm.

    As far as planning how much time to budget for your Fantasmic! dining package, it really depends on which restaurant you are dining at. I think that eating at Hollywood & Vine would probably take the least amount of time simply because it is a buffet and you won't have to place an order and wait for your food to arrive. Mama Melrose's and the Hollywood Brown Derby will take a little longer.

    I would recommend you plan on arriving at the amphitheater about half an hour before the show begins. To be on the safe side, I would make my reservations about 2 1/2 hours before show time - around 6:00. This would give you about two hours to enjoy your meal. If you finish up sooner than expected, you can walk around Hollywood Studios and maybe check out some of the shops or character meet and greets. It's better to have a little extra time than to be running late!

    I hope you enjoy Fantasmic! It is one of my favorite shows at Disney World.
