Fantasmic! and Dinner

Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any good experiences with this combo. If so, what restaurant and how did it go. Do you really get VIP Seating? How much does this cost. Thank you.

We did Mama Melrose with the preferred seating package and the food was pretty good. The reserved seating was kind of on the side, but still good seats. I don't think there is a bad seat in the arena though. Without the reserved seating you might just have to get there a little earlier. I would probably do it again though. The night we did have the reserved seating it was pouring rain the whole time and they didn't cancel the show, so I don't think I enjoyed the reserved seating as much as I would have without the rain.

Here is a link to info on the F. Dining package. It will probably answer most of your questions.: http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/dining/fantasmic.htm

We have eaten at all three of the restaurants that offer the package. Predictably, we most enjoyed HBD, enjoyed Mama Melrose for both lunch and dinner but on every occasion have had to wait for our table, and did not enjoy H&V on either time we tried it.

Preferred seating has an unimpeded view of the stage area and is very close to the exit, so is a plus for us on that score. Being able to enter the theatre with only 30-40 min. to wait before the show is a definite plus for us, especially if we are going during a hotter or more crowded time of year.

If you decide to do this, make sure that you are making a F. Dining reservation, and not a regular reservation at the restaurant of your choice.

As the PP said, the seating is slighly to the side, but the view is still pretty good.



It's a fixed price meal (so everyone must have their own meal to qualify for the voucher), but it's a nice way to get an appetizer on the DDP (if going to MM or HBD). I've been to HBD and really enjoyed the food and service. As a PP said, it's nice not having to line up super early to get a seat for the show.
