Good morning MW family. what's everyone up to??? guys how does the dining package with the fantasmic show work. is the dining plan includes? I've never seen it and would like to see it. thanks guys ur awesome!! love y'all!!

Good morning Yessy! We thought the Fantasmic Dining package was great. We ate at Mama Melrose, we used the dining plan, so no extra $ and we got to show up to a separate entrance so we didn't have to stand in line or be herded like cattle to get in. We walked right to our seats just shortly before the show started (20 minutes) and the rest of the seats were full and that was in September. We were there in March of 2009 and couldn't even get in to see the show :( That's why we did the package. If you are going to eat table service, the price is the same they don't charge extra because it's the Fantasmic package, but you do have to eat at Hollywood and Vine, Hollywood Brown Derby or Mama Melrose, you can eat at one quick service - Min and Bill's for the package as well. If there are two shows the package is for the first one. You get to sit in a reserved section, but don't have specific seats, the section is to the right, not center, but we had no trouble getting up close. I'm sure center seats are better, but we wouldn't have gotten them unless we were a lot earlier and with two little kids, we just can't wait 1 hour for every show at Disney to start in order to get good seats. I hope this helps :) Like I said, if you are going to eat, you may as well do the package, it's not more money, it's the cost of your meal. - DizneyGirl  979.9 #8 5:43AM
OK that sounds amazing I am doing the dining plan and will probably do mama Melrose or Hollywood and Vine I just didn't know if I had to pay extra money. I think I'm going to do it because I have never seen it. Thanks for the info!! - yessy  242.9 #39 6:06AM
It is not extra money! When you pay your bill you get a voucher to get in the special entrance. We had never seen it either, once got rained out, other times it was full and couldn't get in, so we though this was a way to insure we got in. - DizneyGirl  979.9 #8 6:11AM
You will be told to be there 30 to 45 minutes early (not as early as you'd need to be there if you don't have the voucher if you want seats), but we did 20 minutes and they will still let you in. When we got there, there were no seats in the general area, but a ton in the reserved section, but it filled up slowly after that. So, I wouldn't wait to late, def do 20 minutes or maybe 30 minutes. - DizneyGirl  979.9 #8 6:13AM
Thanks again for ur help :) - yessy  242.9 #39 6:17AM
Good morning. The Fanrasmic! meal is expensive and limits your dining options. It definitely isn't necessary for decent seating either. You have to arrive to the theater as early as everyone else! - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1453.0 #3 4:42AM
Hmm so I really don't have to do the whole dining thing there to get good seating. I wasn't sure how it all worked but thanks so much. I think I'll just arrive to the show and just make a reservation somewhere else right! - yessy  242.9 #39 4:45AM
Just to clarify, if you are not doing the dining plan the Fantasmic! meal is a set price for set items. If you order the steak, your getting a bargain. If you order pasta and marinara, your grossly over paying! As far as seating, it depends on the time of year. For as early as we were told to arrive we could have picked a good seat in any section. So, the Fantasmic! package was definitely not worth the expense for me. - CollegeDisneyKnowledgeGrad  1453.0 #3 6:46AM
Good morning! - jacdanfan  12152.5 #6 5:41AM
we went to Fantasmic in April, and got there 1hour+ before the show. We didn't even get seats. We had to stand in the back where they had "standing room only" it was HORRIBLE to see, especially for kids. I would recommend doing anything to get a seat. Don't know about the dining plan, but if you are guaranteed a seat, I would probably do it! - ncjal  314.8 #28 6:03AM
I m definitely using a dining plan to get in. - yessy  242.9 #39 6:17AM
We are doing the Fantasmic! dining package in February when we go. We have never seen the show either, and my daughter gets impatient in long lines, so I figured this would work well for us. =) - eeyorefan107l  280.2 #31 6:15AM
Good morning , if you don't do the dining plan meal & show , there's no garantee you will get a seat unless you get there 1 1/2 hr to 2 hrs early !!! - skcanfield  586.4 #14 6:16AM
OK got it thanks guys!!! - yessy  242.9 #39 11:50AM
