    What dates do the Electrical Parade, Fantasmic and the fireworks show end this year?

    Welcome to planDisney, Catherine!

    I see that you're traveling to The Happiest Place on Earth in September. You're going to have an amazing time! My family recently came back from Disneyland and all we can think about is when we can go back. 

    We loved watching the nighttime spectaculars. World of Color was so beautiful and inspiring. We managed to get so close to the front that we got a little wet from the spray! Totally worth it though! The Main Street Electrical Parade was such a joy to watch too. My kids were so overcome with excitement that they stopped watching the show and just started dancing with one another. Disneyland Forever had some of the biggest (and loudest) fireworks I've ever seen. But my absolute favorite was Fantasmic! I'm not going to lie, I teared up when that music started. Now my kids are obsessed and listen to the Fantasmic! song on a daily basis at home. Needless to say, we had a magical trip.

    Unfortunately, Catherine, the Main Street Electrical Parade and Disneyland Forever will end their limited-time runs at Disneyland on September 1. I realize that is agonizingly close to your arrival date. Oh, bother! However, you'll be glad to know that Fantasmic! is scheduled to run twice each day at 9:00 PM and 10:30 PM until the end of the summer. Right now, I'm seeing that this schedule will continue until September 5. However, it's possible that Disney might extend this schedule. You can always keep up to date with any developments on Disney Parks Blog.

    Catherine, let me assure you that you're still going to have the BEST. DAY. EVER! Can I make a recommendation? If you can, try to make reservations for the Fantasmic! On-the-Go Package at Hungry Bear Restaurant. You'll be able to eat a tasty meal at the Hungry Bear Restaurant, with a lovely view of the Rivers of America. Not only that, but you'll get reserved seating for Fantasmic! My family recently enjoyed this experience and we had the best view. It was maybe the highlight of our trip. Even if you don't see availability now, keep checking. People often change their plans and cancel their reservations. We actually got a reservation the day before our visit. 

    I hope that's helpful, Catherine! As we say in Liverpool, have a "proper boss" trip.

    See ya real soon!
