    We are going to Disney in October 2017. Other than the MK fireworks and HWS Fantasmic, what other night offerings shouldn't be missed? We have a 4 yr old son, 11 yr old daughter. Thanks!

    Hi Amy,

    You've already identified two of the must-see nighttime activities at Walt Disney World: Fantasmic! and the Happily Ever After fireworks and projection show at Magic Kingdom.

    In addition, you definitely will want to make plans to see Animal Kingdom after dark on your Walt Disney World vacation. It's an entirely different park when the sun goes down. You can see the new Pandora -- The World of Avatar literally glow after dark. Kilimanjaro Safaris is a new experience at night, and so is Expedition Everest. There's music and dancing in the streets, plus the Rivers of Light music and light show and the Tree of Life Awakenings. So much to see after sunset!

    I always love IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot as well. And if you have any Star Wars fans, Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular is a must.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amy. As you can see, there's just as much fun to plan in the evenings at Walt Disney World as during the day. Please let us know if you have other questions. Enjoy!
