    My travel agent recc. the fantasmic dining package. Any information about this would be great! Is this even appropriate for my children (read mixed reviews online) they are 11, 5, 3.

    Hi Mandi!

    Fantasmic is awesome.  It is my all time favorite nighttime spectacular in all of Walt Disney World.  It is definitely a "must do".  However, the show can also be a little scary for young children.  My youngest son, now age 8, was still a little scared of the villains as young as age 5.  However, if we bought him a light up toy to hold and play with during the show he was generally okay.

    With regards to the Fantasmic Dining Package, I usually only recommend it if you are visiting a very busy time at Walt Disney World.  Otherwise, I recommend going without it.  That's because you still have to show up early (at least 30 minutes before show time) and the seats reserved are off centered and not the best.  Instead, I recommend showing up to the show about 45 minutes before it starts and getting a better seat in the middle of the stadium.  However, during the busiest times of the year, you might have to show up 90 minutes before show time and thus the Fantasmic Dining Package can be a time saver.

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
