    Will Fantasmic! (WDW) be happening for Thanksgiving? Or at least during that week?

    Hello Andrea!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for sending your question to us as you dream about your fall escape to the Most Magical Place on Earth. You're going to have a fantastic time! The weather in November is usually pleasant, and the theme parks and resorts shine with holiday spirit. Let's talk about evening entertainment at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Currently, Fantasmic!'s showtimes are available 60 days in advance. Check the show information page or the Park House calendar in late September to see the schedule for late November. Typically, Fantasmic! takes place nightly right around theme park closing. I expect Thanksgiving week to have a similar timeline.

    Fantasmic! is my husband's favorite nighttime spectacular in Walt Disney World, so we always prioritize it on vacation. While the theater can seat almost 7,000 Guests, the show is popular, and I recommend arriving at the Sunset Boulevard entrance about an hour before showtime. For your convenience, refreshments and restrooms are available inside the arena.

    If you want to guarantee a spot without queuing up so far in advance, consider booking a Fantasmic! Dining Package. In addition to a delicious meal at a table-service restaurant in Disney's Hollywood Studios, you'll receive a voucher for guaranteed seating at Fantasmic! in a reserved area. Because the amphitheater is a bit of a walk from Sunset Boulevard, plan to arrive and check in at least 30 minutes before the show begins, even with a guaranteed seat.

    I hope this has been helpful, Andrea. Stay tuned for exact Park Hours and showtimes for your visit, and please come see us again if there is anything else we can do to make your November holiday even more magical. Also, be sure to follow our Instagram account and the Disney Parks Blog for news and updates as your trip approaches. Thanks again for stopping by planDisney. We'll see ya real soon!
