    Hi nicola,

    You don't watch Dreams from the restaurants - the Dreams Meals include a wristband which then allows access to a roped off area on Central Plaza, in front of the Dreams Control Centre building, facing the Castle, looking across the circle of Central Plaza.

    You have to be at the VIP area at least 30 mins before Dreams begins. It doesn't give the best view, but it does save having to wait for some time to secure a spot, especially if the park is busy. People with young children and buggies have said it was worth doing to have more space, as numbers are limited in this area.

    Do you really? I didn't turn up to watch Dreams until about 20 minutes before it started (not in the VIP area) and we found a spot we could both see with no problem. I was busy riding BTM in the dark until then :goodvibes.

    That's what it says in the description of the Dreams Meals. Remember that it does depend on crowd levels.
    I got my place in front of the Castle as soon as they put the rope across Castle Bridge entrance at 9pm for 11pm show, and the front line filled up very quickly!
    The ground was wet as it had been raining, so people didn't sit down. On my last night it had been a warm sunny day, and people sat on the ground to watch Dreams, so others behind had a better view of the Castle and projections. They don't insist people sit though, and some will always stand.

    I took this photo from in front of the VIP area, so this is roughly the view you would have, but remember that Central Plaza could be full of people standing up, maybe with kids on their shoulders - not empty like in my photo!

    In June we turned up 10 mins (max) before Dreams and had no problem being let into the VIP area - in fact people arrived after us.

    I would recommend it with young children - we had one in a pushchair who got the best view of the nights we watched it. DD1 (standing) also got the best view. The massive plus being you can arrive so late and not stand around long.

    Some people have said you can arrive 15 mins or so before and get just as good a view outside the VIP area - yes, but with children that is much, much harder - we never really managed that well the other nights and waited anything from 40 mins to 20 mins before... ::yes::

    If it's on in Nov, I'm not sure what we will do - don't think we want to eat where they are offering it this time!?

    If it's not on, I know where I will be standing ;)!

    One of our posters on the Trip Advisor DLP forum has just been told that their Dreams meal reservation for 9th October will now be for an ordinary meal, as the Dreams ones will only be on Fridays.

    That is interesting Figgygirl - not bodeing well for November then is it!? I can't see it being on at all by then.

    Wonder why only Fridays? Seems a bit odd - why not all weekend when the opening hours are longer :confused3.

    I don't know what the current menus are for the Dreams meals - I plan to check this when I go on 3rd October.

    They will accept Meal Plan vouchers at face value in Euros, and deduct these from your bill. You don't get the soft drink or bottle of water included though.
    You can only use one voucher per person towards the cost.

    The printed out menus in the restaurants haven't changed from those that are on the 1st page of this thread.

    They now offer you other dishes but it's not part of the printed up Dreams menu in several languages - would no doubt cost too much to reprint ::yes::

    I've spoken to several people over there in City Hall and at the restaurants and everyone has a vague answer of what is happening :confused3 I'm going again twice this week so will re ask but I really don't think they tell the staff much until the last minute and even then it seems to change on a daily basis

    Thanks Carrie_Cat,

    You are very lucky to be able to go there so often!

    Not really worth my checking menus in October then?

    Just to update -

    One of our posters on the TA DLP forum has just booked Dreams meal for lunch in Walt's on November 11th, which is a National Holiday for Armistice Day.
    They were told that from now on the Dreams meals will only be available at weekends, and maybe only for lunch, not dinner.

    Thanks for the update Figgy :). Hmm I don't think we'll manage a VIP meal then. The only time we could do it would be Saturday lunchtime (at Blue Lagoon perhaps, not sure I fancy Walts again for it?) but then we want to go to Inventions for dinner that night so it's a bit too much of a food fest!!! :crazy2:

    The children's menu is now 19.50 - was it 19.00 before?

    We had this on Saturday at Walts (DH didn't want to do BL). We timed it just right and got a window table for the Cavalcade which was nice (although I am glad we also watched it from the street too because you don't see it as well).

    I do have the new menu on my camera and will try and upload in the next day or so.

    Have to say, we had a gorgeous meal - much nicer than June as there is a fair bit more choice. I am fairly sure the starters have changed too, and the desserts definitely have and are much nicer. In June the children had a different dessert to us - this time we all had the same (not sure what it was - sort of chocolate bombe with milk & white chocolate mousse inside, with a nutty base). Delicious meal in all.

    Saturday night, despite the rain, the park was heaving and therefore spots for Dreams were limited. Once again though, I think if you were adults (no children in puschairs or small height) you probably wouldn't need this. We however found it useful to turn up 10 mins before show start (especially as it was pouring down). The girls got a reasonable view - not as good as June I would say, as even the VIP area was busy. As this was our second viewing of Dreams though (first of this trip, we were at the rope due to low numbers!), we weren't too worried :thumbsup2.

    Thanks for the prices update and details of the new menu would be much appreciated.

    I watched Dreams from the 'VIP' area corner on Thursday 22nd November, but it wasn't roped off as not doing the Dreams meals. Gave me a chance to see what the view is like from there as I usually like to be right at the front.
    Got some super photos and video, but more posts with lights/speakers are in the way when you stand here. You get a better overall view of the fireworks and fountains though, and the images on the water screens look bigger when you are further away.

    We waited an hour at the front of the Castle for our place there, so couldn't watch Tree Lighting as well on that night. The next night ( Thursday) we watched Tree Lighting, then nipped down Liberty Arcade to get a spot on the corner of Central Plaza, which would be in the VIP area.

    There was a short fountain show at 6.45pm before Dreams began at 7pm.

    Being off peak weekdays the park was not very busy, which helps.

    19.50€ is a price drop non, it was 20€ before ?

    I've got some photos of the chocolate dessert, it's been there a while now but I've been slacking :rotfl:

    Always love new menus ;) Did you get your CG meal as well this trip ? :goodvibes

    That surprised me as well Carrie - yes, it was €20 for kids before.
