    We will be at Disney World Parks May 23-25. Can you tell me when Illuminations, Wishes Night Time Spectacular and Fantasmic will be held so I can plan our park days accordingly?

    Hey Vicki!  Hopefully you can finish your planning with this information about the great entertainment schedules in the parks during your stay!

    The Magic Kingdom hours on May 23 is from 9am-11pm with Extra Magic Hours from 11pm-2am.  The night time parade will be at 9pm and 11pm and Wishes will be at 10pm.  On May 24 the hours will be 9am-10pm with the parade being at 9pm and Wishes at 10pm.  Finally on May 25 the park is open from 9am-9pm with no parade but Wishes being at 9pm.

    EPCOT is open daily during your stay from 9am-9pm. On May 25 they will have Extra Magic Hours from 8am-9am.  Illuminations is nightly at 9pm.

    Hollywood Studios will be open on May 23 from 9am-10pm.  Fantasmic will be shown twice at 9pm and also 10:30pm.  On May 24 the park hours are 9am-7pm with Extra Magic Hours from 7pm-10pm.  On this night there will be no Fantasmic show.  On May 25 the hours are 9am-10pm and Fantasmic again will have two shows at 9pm and 10:30pm.

    I would certainly do the Magic Kingdom on May 23 with the Extra Magic Hours and the with the shows you want to see.  Then Hollywood Studios on May 25 with two chances for Fantasmic that night. EPCOT then can be enjoyed on May 24......just my suggestion for an itinerary! Enjoy!
