    Does Disney always cutback on night time shows during the winter? Advice? We're there the week of 3/4 and "Once Upon a Time" is only being shown on 3/4.

    Hi, Caitlin! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Once Upon A Time is currently scheduled (as per the Walt Disney World Resort website) to run at Magic Kingdom Park up until April 8th, 2017. On May 12th, Happily Ever After Nighttime Spectacular will debut. I understand that you are currently enjoying your magical vacation, and I hope you were able to sneak in a viewing! A few weeks ago I called to inquire about why there was no Once Upon A Time scheduled for this week, and the numerous Cast Members I spoke to did not have an answer for me. 

    Luckily, there are many other nighttime shows to keep you busy:

    -Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular at Disney’s Hollywood Studios
    -IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot
    -And the all new Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park

    An alternative to this is to spend an evening enjoying the bustling atmosphere at Disney Springs or Disney’s Boardwalk!

    I hope that you have a magical vacation,
