    I have a Fantasmic! Dining package for July 21. The vouchers are for the first show at 9pm. The Star Wars fireworks begin at 9:30. Won't the two shows conflict? Will I have enough time to see both? Could the fireworks schedule change? Thanks!

    Hey, Hector!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! So in addition to seeing an epic battle between good and evil during Fantasmic! you also want to blast off to a galaxy far, far away. Both great choices and you won't be disappointed.

    I just got back from Disney's Hollywood Studios where Fantasmic! showed at 9:00 p.m. and Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular was scheduled at 9:45 p.m. The fireworks started promptly and the show lasted about 15 minutes with three distinct acts.

    Unless Disney Cast Members empty out the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater quickly you will likely miss the beginning of the fireworks as fireworks times rarely change.

    To see both shows completely, I suggest you cancel your Fantasmic! Dining Package which forces you to see the first show at 9:00 p.m. and catch the less crowded 10:30 p.m. show.

    Disney Dad Tip: The best viewing area for Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular is at Center Stage past the projection towers in front of the The Great Movie Ride at the end of Hollywood Boulevard. To make it more spectacular you could sip on a Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshake from the Tune-In Lounge or snack on a BB-8 Lemon Cupcake from the Backlot Express.

    Hector, enjoy making many Magical Memories!
