    Hi! Going to DW in June with 6 & 4 year old boys staying at Animal Kingdom. We have 6 nights available so thinking: 2 Wishes, 2 illuminations, 1 Fantasmic, 1 night at the hotel. Should we switch 1 Illumination for Fantasmc? What do you recommend.


    I think your plan is fine. However, you might consider taking one of your Wishes or IllumiNations nights and instead of re-watching something you already saw, perhaps spending an evening at the BoardWalk or Downtown Disney.

    If you are not 100% sure, here is what I would do. One one of your IllumiNations nights at Epcot, leave well prior to the fireworks show from Epcot via the International Gateway between the England and France Pavilions. Get on the boat and go to the BoardWalk for a nice stroll. Get a feel for what the fun is like. If it does not seem your speed, return to the World Showcase in Epcot in time for the fireworks. But if you like it, maybe you let that be your evening's destination?

    But certainly keeping to the schedule you have listed here is fine. And no, while I like Fantasmic, I would rather see IllumiNations twice.

    Have a magical vacation!
