great, thankyou

ABQOct 23, 2015

Yup, rewards points work like cash at any WDW restaurant. Whether it be a package like Candlelight, Fantasmic or plain old meal.

aladdin2007Oct 23, 2015

Question, I know those that have a dining plan can use it for the package etc, but what about disney visa reward card points? Can we apply those to our package bill at the restaurant?

dstrawn9889Oct 21, 2015

only if it's Lt. Dan talking back to him

Coaster LoverOct 21, 2015

Does it open up some weird black hole or something if he goes to ride Mission:SPACE the same day and get's instructions from himself on how to ride safely?

KCLOct 21, 2015

Dang, just missing NPH. Oh well.

CrazydisneyfanlukeOct 17, 2015

Most likely not since dinner packages take up most of the room.

RSoxNo1Oct 17, 2015

Doesn't look like FP is available for this.

Zummi GummiOct 16, 2015

I would be very curious to know this as well.

CrazydisneyfanlukeOct 15, 2015

So do I! Dec 4th @ 1pm for the 5pm performance

wdwmagicOct 15, 2015

If you are doing standby you will need to be there around 2 hours before.

fillerupOct 15, 2015

Anybody have a guess if they'll likely do FP for this since they're doing it for Eat to the Beat? If they do, I'm thinking that standby is pretty much a thing of the past.

We have dinner package booked at the Rose And Crown for Whoopi Goldberg

bjm72385Oct 15, 2015

We will be at Disney from 12/05-12/12 and planned on catching this the first night we are there with Whoopi. We have never seen this before, although I have seen pictures, videos, and read nothing but positive reviews about it. My question is, being it will be a Saturday and it is Whoopi, any idea what kind of crowds to expect? Our plan was to go to Hollywood Studios after checking in, and then taking the boat or bus over to Epcot in time for the 6:45 show, and worse case if we miss that one, stay for the 8:15 show. Any tips or suggestions greatly appreciated!
