Is this worth doing and what resturant
I think it depends on what time if year you are traveling. I've done the package a couple of times and there was no need to really as there were plenty of seats in the other sections. You are going in September? If that is correct, I would just do Fantasmic as a walk up.
If you want a recommendation of an awesome experience then try to get lunch with an imagineer at Brown Derby. We went last August and had a phenomenal time. I would definitely go again. It was about $60-70 I think and worth every penny.
Thanks that seams possibility
Agree with what Johnie has said - depending on the time of year you're going, it's not always necessary. The seats aren't "prime" though I'd argue there's not really a bad seat to be had...and usually it's not impossible to get into. We've always had the best luck going to the second showing if there are two for that evening - the crowds seem to be a little less.
and at least you get to sit and wait as opposed to standing and waiting so all is good
i've never done the package as i don't think it's been necessary. I like to be there early though. To be honest none of the restaurants really appeal to me that participate.
We haven't done it in so long, I'm not sure which restaurants even offer it....can someone share?
Hollywood and Vine, Mama Melrose and Brown Derby.
I enjoy Mama Melrose every time I've been.
I can't remember the last time we even saw Fantasmic but I know we ended up getting a dinner time that was way too early for our taste. I would give Brown Derby a try though. We've eaten there a couple of times, not on the package, since they've brought in a new head chef and we've been very happy with it. You can now also get a smaller version of their marvelous Cobb Salad.
