    Would anyone recommend doing the Fantasmic dinner package that includes a VIP seat or just a regular dinner reservation at H&V and Fast Passing Fantasmic? We have 3 adults and 4 children; ages 5, 4, 4 & 1. Is the dinner package/vip worth the 2 cred

    Hi there, Lisa!

    One of the things I always try to do when I visit Walt Disney World is to save time in lines every chance I get. Fantasmic! is definitely a not-to-be-missed show and the line to get into it can be a long one depending on the time of year of your visit.

    Now, I have experienced the Fantasmic! Dinner Package by dining at Hollywood Brown Derby, a restaurant that already requires 2 Table Service credits from your Disney Dining Plan as it is one of the Signature Dining Restaurants. It was fabulous to just be able to walk right up to the special entrance just 20-30 minutes before the start of the show and have guaranteed VIP seating in the reserved section!

    If you choose to dine at Hollywood & Vine for your Fantasmic! Dinner Package, it will only cost you 1 of your Table Service entitlements from the Disney Dining Plan. When you select your restaurant and preferred time/date on the site I linked above, the system will show you the availability. Once you select the time you'd like to dine, you'll be taken to the next page in the process of making your Advanced Dining Reservation. Just to the right of where your screen shows "Hollywood & Vine Dinner Fantasmic!", you'll notice that it says "Select Disney Dining Plans Accepted." Just click on those words and a pop-up window will show you how many entitlements are needed as a confirmation before you complete your booking.

    The Cast Member I spoke with at Disney Dining confirmed that even though this package is not listed in the online brochure, the most current information shows as you are booking this particular package.

    I sure hope this helps with your decision, Lisa! Please let us know if we can help with any other questions you have.

    Wishing you and your family a Pixie Dusted vacation!
