    Doug, Thanks for the info. Do you know when the parades and fireworks are going to be in which parks and times? Do they coincide with the itinerary that you gave me? Thanks so much for your help.


    There are so many show times that it would be impossible to include them all in a single Moms Panel response. But here are the easy steps for you to check the individual show times of major shows/fireworks/parades;

    1. Highlight the "Parks" section at the top of the Walt Disney World website.
    2. When the drop down menu appears, simply select the park for which you want to check for show times ("Magic Kingdom" for instance).
    3. Once you are on that park's main page, just select "Calendar" from the left column choices.
    4. Once the calendar shows, you can adjust to whatever month you are planning to visit by clicking on the menu to the upper right of the calendar.
    5. When you click on an actual date, it will show you the schedule for the park, and major show and event times, for that day.
    Wishes (Magic Kingdom) and IllumiNations (Epcot) fireworks shows are held nightly. Fantasmic! (Hollywood Studios) unfortunately is not, so checking is a good idea. I always say that the first two are "Must Do!" experiences. While I like Fantasmic!, I don't necessarily think of it that same way, especially since it typically requires a good hour long wait.

    Have a magical vacation!
