Many families will line up to steak out their viewing spot up to an hour early for Fantasmic at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and Wishes Nighttime Spectacular at Magic Kingdom. Once they find their “spot” they have to sit on the curb, bench or sidewalk to save this “spot” until show time. But did you know there are better ways to spend this time at Walt Disney World?
At Hollywood Studios, you can make reservations for the Fatasmic Meal Package at select restaurants. You can book a lunch or dinner reservation at The Hollywood Brown Derby or Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano or a dinner reservation at Hollywood & Vine on days when Fantasmic is scheduled. You can pick up your VIP voucher at the time of your meal reservation. With your voucher you will be guided to reserved seating 30-45 minutes prior to show time. (Other families without the vouchers will wait much longer to get into the amphitheater and may not have the greatest view.)
At Magic Kingdom, you can end your evening with the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party at the Tomorrowland Terrace Restaurant. An hour prior to Wishes, your family can enjoy a self serving buffet full of mouth watering desserts and drinks with the purchase of a separate party ticket. The best part of this experience is when Wishes starts, you’ll be right where Tinkerbell flies!
You can call (407) WDW-DINE (939-3463) to make dining reservations for the Fantasmic Meal Package or the Tomorrowland Terrace Dessert Party. Make sure you make your Hollywood Studio’s reservations on a day when Fantasmic is showing!!
