    I will be doing one park per day for four days. Wednesday February 1 until Saturday February 4. MK is locked in on Thursday, Epcot on Friday. But Fantasmic has two showings on Saturday - what are the wait times like on a weekend for Fantasmic + rides?

    Hello there, Josh!

    This Jersey girl is so excited that your vacation perfectly aligns with The World's Most Magical Celebration. When you visit each of the four theme parks, I highly recommend making time to see the four theme park icons as they transform into Beacons of Magic during the celebration. 

    Back and better than ever, Fantasmic! features live performers, impressive pyrotechnics, and Disney musical classics. On Saturday, February 4, 2023, Fantasmic! currently has two showtimes scheduled at 8:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. On the day of your visit, I recommend checking the time on your My Disney Experience app or asking the Disney Resort hotel Front Desk to confirm the showtimes on the day of your visit, since the show is subject to cancellation due to inclement weather. My family recently saw the forces of good and evil battling it out in Mickey's dream during the nighttime musical on a Saturday at 8:00 p.m. It looked like Guests started lining up for Fantasmic! seating about one hour in advance of each show, but you may arrive as early as 90 minutes prior to the show. 

    If you want to ensure VIP seating for Fantasmic!, I suggest looking into one of the Fantasmic! Dining Packages. The dining packages are currently offered at Mama Melrose's Ristorante Italiano, Hollywood & Vine, and The Hollywood Brown Derby. The packages include an entree and appetizer or dessert or one full buffet with a non-alcoholic beverage, along with one voucher for guaranteed seating at Fantasmic! in a reserved area. When my family did the dining package, we showed up at the stadium approximately 30 minutes before the show to get a reserved spot. 

    It's tricky to predict what the attraction wait times will be like during your visit, but if you're looking for assistance, I'd suggest looking into the Disney Genie+ service. Like Jimminy Cricket, Disney Genie+ service will be your guide in the My Disney Experience mobile app by sending you attraction and dining recommendations inspired by what you told Disney Genie service you're most interested in doing. Let me know if you have any other questions. 

    May the magic be with you!
