:? My husband and I are taking our, sons and their wives and children to Disney (Land and Cruise Package) this coming Thanksgiving. There will be eleven of us....We all plan on going to Disney Studios the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and will buy the Fantasmic Dinner Package. I don't know what the hours are yet for November, but, I'd like to make my reservations on the 90 day mark..which would be towards the end of August...Does anybody have any idea what time the Fantasmic show (s) might be in November? I am thinking about even making dinner reservations as early as 4:00 PM to assure us enough time should the show start at 6:00 PM. Any ideas would be appreciated!

Welcome to MGMStudios.Org disney's daughter!

As to your question about predicting November's Fantasmic! schedule, you can refer to the November 2002 park hours to see what they were like last year: http://www.mgmstudio...vember2002.html

4:00 should be plenty of time, unless you're one of those families that makes dinner into a whirlwind affair :) 2 hours should be good.

:lol: Thank you! I think I will go on and try to make the dinner reservations at 4:00...if we get hungry again...we'll just eat some of the snacks they offer at the show.

Be sure to enjoy your dinner rather than scarfing down the food in an attempt to get yourself perfect seats :lol:

;) I think since we will have five children, along with the adults, we'll choose Hollywood and Vine. We have eaten there before with one of my granchildren and he loved it. My husband favors the Brown Derby, which I think has excellent food...but, I still think with so many people with different likes and tastes, the buffet may be a wiser choice this time. I have been visiting Disney World quite freqently these past few years...in fact...I am going with my husband and another couple the week after Labor Day and also the middle of October for a week with my sister, her husband, and grandchildren. Before, I always went around the first week of December...Now, I will be able to say that I have been there, September, October, November, December, February, March, and May....Whew! :thumleft: Thank You....I enjoy the boards...and from time to time...I may be able to answer some questions!

I think Hollywood and Vine would be a good idea as well, the buffet has a nice variety of food.

You're closing in on all months of the year! :thumleft:

I think Brenda has the right idea, Holly & Vine would certainly be cheaper than the Brown Derby and if ya got kids and such(AKA people with less than sophisticated tastes :thumleft: ) then Holly & Vine is a good choice.

When we took my grandson, to Hollywood & Vine, he kept saying how this was the BEST place he had eaten...just the BEST! I was curious about that since he put hot dogs and macaroni and cheese on his plate...Hmmmm...could it have been the "lite up" ice cube in his drink...which he still has....?
I am hoping to go to another place to dine in September other than Hollywood and Vine or Brown Derby (it will be closed during the time we are there).....Maybe the Sci-Fi.....There will be two couples, all middle aged.. :thumleft:

Sci-Fi is a good spot, a bit overpriced, but the theming is worth it.

I enjoy the Sci-Fi. I try to stop there for a snack in the afternoon. Also not sure of the exact dates you are there the start of next month but remember:

I agree with Matt on the chilli thing. :shock:

Matt, Sony Mavica CD-250 -One of the older sony mini-CD cameras. Got it off eBay a few months ago for about $200. retail is about $450. For anyone who can save up for one of these types cameras I would highly suggest it. Worth every penny. The newest one is the cd-600 i think. On a single mini-cd I can capture and store apx 250 images 1600x1200 or up to 10 mins of video (320x240) or any combo inbetween.

:D We're arriving the 7th of September and leaving the 12th...The bathrooms are closed only the 8th?..We'll be sure to not go to Disney Studios on that date just in case we do decide to eat at the Sci-Fi! I don't think we need to get the dinner package during those dates...a week after Labor Day weekend....from what I have read on the boards....should be very little crowds. My sister and I didn't need to make them when we went in February...The night before Thanksgiving......I am sure it will be very crowded! :)

Actually the few times I have been there for that week of Nov it has been fairly calm. Thanksgiving Day was the only one where you reall needed to make seating arrangements ahead of time.

:) Thanks...We'll go after the 8th! I think our middle aged group of four just might try the Sci-Fi!
