In case you missed it, since it was buried at the end of yesterday’s post, Disney is offering a new “Fantasmic Picnic Package” from December 18th to December 31st. All of the details are here: http://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/2011/12/fun-new-fantasmic-dining-experience-at-disneys-hollywood-studios/. I booked it for December 18th at 6:30pm, so I’ll have a full report soon after. Disney operators were aware of it and the total booking, including credit card confirmation, took just under 7.5 minutes. Hopefully it won’t be a lengthy process for you either.
Simply dial 1-407-WDW-DINE, choose “1” for “Make A New Reservation” and when prompted to say a restaurant name, say “Fantasmic.” The robo-voice will tell you that you’re interested in the Fantasmic Dining Package and will connect you to an operator that will complete the transaction. I told her that I wanted the, “A Taste of Hollywood To Go – A Fantasmic! Dining Experience” and she knew exactly what I was talking about. It doesn’t matter that you’re actually interested in the Picnic Package as the operator on the line will be able to book any other dining reservations as well. There is a $10 charge should you not cancel within 24 hours. You don’t need to decide which entree you’ll be ordering until you arrive to pick it up.
