    On the day we plan to visit Hollywood Studios, it’s open until 8:30 p.m. However, Fantasmic is scheduled at 8:30 and Star Wars Fireworks are at 9 p.m. Will the rides be open during this time? Or do they shut down at 8:30 when the park closes?

    Welcome, Nichole!

    We are so happy to hear from you!

    Fantasmic! and Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular are epic experiences not to be missed! These are two of my favorite shows at the Walt Disney World Resort! These shows are the finale of the day at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. A few shops, restaurants, and pre-reserved experiences may go passed the stated park-closing. But, generally, the attractions at the theme parks will begin closing their normal operating hours when the listed time of closing arrives.

    Sometimes, there are After Hours events or Extra Magic Hours that can keep you in the theme parks late into the night! You can see what Special Events are happening during your vacation! 

    Don’t forget to visit Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge! The blue milk is smooth, the Resistance is waiting for you to enlist, and the Millennium Falcon is ready to be piloted! Black Spire Outpost is ready to welcome you and your travelers!

    If you find yourself with any additional questions, feel free to visit us again, Nichole, at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    May the Force be with you.
