    Question Help with Fantasmic dining pacakge!

    I know that the fantasmic dining package has been discussed countless times, but i have a question that i didn't find an answer to in any of the threads.

    Do i make reservations at one of the three restaurants and say that i want the fantasmic package? or is there some other way to go about it??

    I'm on the dining plan, but i wasn't sure how to book this package. Thanks for the help!!

    We did the Fantasmic package one year. Yes, when you call the ADR line, tell them you want the dining package. When you check in at the restaurant, verify that they have you listed with the Fantasmic package. Then they give you a ticket, or coupon, and tell you where to go and what time. You give your ticket to the usher type person at the gate and then you go to your seats. Let me now tell you why I don't recommend it for any season other than peak season. They seat you on the far right side of the stadium. There were so many better seats we could have had. So, last year we didn't use the dining package and I just stood in line to get into Fantasmic. My friend and her boys rode ToT while I waited and then they caught up with me in line. Although the line looks huge as you are moving into the stadium, the stadium is really huge. We were able to get front and center (although about 5 rows back because we didn't want to get wet) and the experience was so much better than sitting all the way to the far right in our "reserved" seats from the year before.
    Now, I don't know how the Fantasmic package would affect your dining credits, I would assume it would be considered a signature dining experience but that is a question they could answer for you when you call to make the ADR.
    And, Mama Melrose is completely delicious!

    Be prepared to wait before Fantasmic starts. The dining package allows you to enter through a side entrance. I think we waited well over an hour for it to start. My bum is not made for sitting on hard seats for that long. The show was worth it though.

    I agree. I'll see the show again, but I won't wait that long next time. I'd rather stand in the back if I had to. I remember swarms of gnats flying around too. Must have been because it's on the water.
