    Hi, my family and I are going to Disney World for seven days. I’ve been meaning to ask you. In Fantasmic at DHS, do any characters showing up randomly during the finale? I don’t know if it’s true or false. I’m happy to looking forward when I return to WDW!

    Hi Andrew! Welcome to planDisney! Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is my favorite nighttime show at Walt Disney World Resort! My family and I just enjoyed the show last week! The story, the music, the characters, and the setting all make for a great way to end your Disney day!

    I’m happy to answer your question, just be aware that there is a “spoiler” in this answer. The spoiler won’t ruin the show but will let you know what to expect at the end of the show. Read on for your answer. I’ll let you know when the spoiler is about to be revealed. Disney characters do not appear for “meet and greet” opportunities with Guests during the show or the finale. Spoiler ahead…the finale of the show includes numerous Disney characters aboard a steamboat with none other than Steamboat Willie serving as captain of the ship! The steamboat carries the characters through the water as they wave to Guests seated in the outdoor theater. Once the show concludes there is not a character “meet and greet.”

    Andrew, here is a PRO TIP for you…There is a mass exodus of Guests from the theater after Fantasmic! As you exit the theater most of the crowd will go to the right. This follows a path that will lead you to an exit near the entrance of Fantasmic! on Sunset Boulevard. During last week’s visit, we noticed some Guests moving to the left after the show. This path isn’t nearly as crowded. This path exits Guests further up Sunset Boulevard avoiding some of the crowd.

    Enjoy a visit to Mickey’s imagination at Fantasmic!

    Dreams do come true!
