Appetizers Removed from Fantasmic Dining Packages at Hollywood Studios, Prices Adjusted

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

Beginning January 1st, 2018, the Fantasmic dining package at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will be removing appetizers from the offering at the Hollywood Brown Derby and Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano.

Beginning January 1, 2018, Fantasmic! Dining Packages will include:

  • One entrée, dessert and nonalcoholic beverage at select full-service restaurants or one buffet (where applicable)
  • One voucher for guaranteed seating at Fantasmic! in a reserved area

The new pricing will be…

Mama Melrose Ristorante Italiano

  • Lunch/dinner – $42 adults; $18 children (plus tax and gratuity)

Hollywood & Vine

  • Breakfast (Disney Junior Play ‘n’ Dine) – $41 adults; $24 children (plus tax and gratuity)
  • Lunch and dinner (Minnie’s Seasonal Dine) – $59 adults; $35 children (plus tax and gratuity)

The Hollywood Brown Derby

  • Lunch/dinner – $62 adults; $22 children (plus tax and gratuity)

While the Brown Derby and Mama Melrose’s are $3 cheaper, that obviously doesn’t make up for  the loss of an appetizer in price. Hollywood & Vine’s pricing for the package is remaining the same.

What happens if you want to use Deluxe Dining Plan credits for this Dining Package? These include appetizers as standard, so it would be frustrating for them to remove them if you were to use them for this reason.

They’ll rename it The Penny Pinching Experience by Disney Parks Management: About the same price, less food to enjoy.

Oh how wrong you are Freaky Frank the Disney Intern. The ones that will be going down are those that still expect the top quality service that your penny pinching managers have all destroyed.
