    We are going to Disneyworld March 5th for the week. Headed to Animal Kingdom all day on March 7th then wanted to attend Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular at Hollywood Studios. It states that it begins at 8:30pm but I thought Hollywood closed at 8pm?

    Hi Chelly,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is less than a month away, and I know just how excited you're getting! You're so close to the magic!

    Disney's Hollywood Studios is positively dreamy at night, decked out in dreamy neon and shadowy palm trees. I think you've got a great plan to use your Park Hopper ticket option to hop over to Disney's Hollywood Studios after a day exploring Disney's Animal Kingdom. I'll be honest: I'm getting a little jealous just thinking about this day!

    Chelly, I double-checked the Park Hours for March 7, and you're correct that Disney's Hollywood Studios is set to close at 8:00 p.m., with Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular scheduled for an 8:30 p.m. show time. (Please note that Park Hours are subject to change at any time, so you may want to check the My Disney Experience mobile app a few days before your visit.) This means you'll want to be sure you enter Disney's Hollywood Studios before the park closes. 

    It's common for nighttime spectaculars to take place after the theme park closes. You'll notice that attractions no longer accept Guests in the ride queue once the park closes, and that many dining and merchandise locations shut down. However, you'll be able to find a spot and enjoy the show. Don't forget to arrive with time to pick up some popcorn, or a sweet treat from The Trolley Car Café, to enjoy while you take in the out-of-this world fireworks!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
