    Just wondering which restaurant is best for the fantasmic dining package.

    Hi Mitch! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Your trip is super close now! It sounds like you are planning all of the final details and are in for an amazing visit. I’m so excited for you! The Fantasmic! Dining Package offers three restaurant choices. I’ve dined at each multiple times and they are all quite different, so I’m happy to give you my opinion on each!

    Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano has some tasty classic pasta dishes like Spaghetti and Meatballs and Wood-grilled Chicken and Penne Pasta (my favorite!), as well as some non-pasta dishes like Saltimbocca and a seasonal fish dish. If your budget is tight, this is the least expensive of the three choices, and while it’s not my favorite of the three, it is definitely yummy!

    Hollywood & Vine is a buffet, so if you are traveling with big appetites, this is the place for you! This is also a fun choice because you dine with familiar Disney Characters as your hosts. Between the Characters and being all-you-care-to-enjoy, this is really a great value!

    The Hollywood Brown Derby is my personal top-pick just because of the delicious food on the menu at this Signature Dining location. It is on the pricier side, but worth every penny if your budget allows! They are famous for their Cobb Salad, Original Mini Grapefruit Cake, and their signature cocktails (for ages 21 and older).

    To sum it up, Hollywood & Vine and The Hollywood Brown Derby would be my top choices, with the decision swayed by either choosing Characters or a Signature Dining Experience. Either way, there will be delicious food!

    Enjoy your vacation, Mitch! Please let us know if you have any other question.
