    I have ADR at Mana melrose Fantasmic package at 5:00 and Sci Fi at 12:45. I don't think it makes sense to keep both (2 big meals that close together). Which would you keep?

    I personally love Sci-Fi. It has turned into a must-do every trip for me. But I've never been to mama melrose so I can't really give a good answer.

    I personally would keep Mama Melrose. I love their food! Plus I like to eat a bigger meal at dinner than I do for lunch so I would want to keep the dinner reservation.

    I have the same ressies as you. I booked Sci Fi at 11:00 for an early lunch. We like to go here for the atmosphere mostly. Perhaps I will just have a shake and appetizer. Then we have the MM Fatasmic package at 5:00 where we will eat a big dinner. I would keep your package since it is easier access to Fantasmic seating. Less of a hassle in my opinion to see the show.

    My vote is for Mama Melrose--I found Sci-Fi fun but loud.

    YES! There is no requirement to order anything, really - shakes and apps would be more than fine. Personally we have never been to MM, but Sci Fi is a must-do each trip!

    My DD and I usually order a burger and split it (because it's really enough food for us). She either gets a shake or shares one with my DH. It doesn't have to be a huge meal if you don't want it to be. ;)

    Could you move SciFi to 11? That's when we always go. They are just opening then, so no wait for a car. We just skip breakfast & have a burger. It's close to 11:30 before we actually start eating, so it works great for us.

    We usually do 50's Prime Time Cafe, but this last trip we did Sci-Fi and really enjoyed it. It was nice and quiet after a day dealing with crowds. We enjoyed it so much, that we added another visit to Sci-Fi into our trip while there. It was a nice change to sit in the dark and watch old movie clips/trailers. When we were there, the parks were mobbed but the restaurant was very quiet - no noise issues for us.

    I would keep Mama melrose and its the fantasmic package and you get a starter extra too :goodvibes
    However Ive heard the wait here is usually long-for us it was nearly an hour. We were warned though, so it didnt worry us.

    I would do as others suggest, still visit sci fi but just get a drink and an app or even split a burger. :thumbsup2

    I agree. The wait at Mama Melrose was very long for us as well and the food was just ok. As part of the fantastic it makes sense to do that and then just get a few items at Sci fi.

    Good choice! We LOVE scifi! Been many times and never had a bad meal! I love how quiet it is too. Very rare in Disney. Lol.
