Because I always like to offer an alternative: the Backlot Express is a fine counter service diner for those folks wanting to save some time and money. Sitting very close to the last stop on the tour, STAR TOURS, Backlot is often overlooked and the burger fixin's bar is top notch. However, the Hollywood Brown Derby is an amazing full service restaurant. Folks may want to change into a tuxedo to fit in, as the shorts and sandaled patrons look very out of place in this ritzy restaurant.
Also, thanks for including a comment about avoiding Extra Magic Hours if you are not staying at a Disney resort. It will be a huge help to most folks.
I'd want the optional attraction to be near or between the last listed one of the lunch location. Ideas? Indy might be tough due to the show schedule. Muppets? Great Movie Ride?
However, The Great Movie Ride is a decent choice simply because it is Disney's longest dark ride, and a huge people mover always able to handle the load. And it is air conditioned!! =)
One other note: if peeps do come back for Fantasmic (which they should...it is an awesome show), they should set time aside to catch the Beauty and the Beast show as well. It is right next to Fantasmic and definitely as close to Broadway quality as any of the better Disney theme park shows.
Anyway None of the WDW Theme Park Shows are close to Broadway quality! I've seen all the Disney Musicals on Broadway multiple times (Mary Poppins is my favorite, and The Little Mermaid is nothing like what you would think) and the only one that ever came close to broadway quality was Hunchback and then only when it first opened...
