    Do Fantasmic! and World of Color run nightly (subject to weather) throughout the year? If not, during the slower times, what nights do these shows typically run? Is there some historical information on this?

    Hi there, Janice!

    Welcome to planDisney! Watching a Nighttime Spectacular is always a highlight of all my trips to Disneyland Resort. The theme parks are extra magical after the sun sets, and the evening performances pull at my heartstrings. 

    I am beyond excited that Fantasmic! returns to the Rivers of America on May 24, 2024! I grew up watching this special show, and now I love seeing it through my kids' eyes. Both Fantasmic! and World of Color - ONE can usually be seen on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout most of the year. Additional weekday performances are often scheduled during peak visitation times, such as summer, spring break, and the holidays. This is based on my experience and is subject to change, especially since many Guests are eager to watch Fantasmic!. I recommend checking the Hours & Event Calendar as it gets closer to your arrival date. 

    I am a huge fan of Dining Packages like the Fantasmic! Blue Bayou Restaurant – Premium Package. I actually booked this package for an upcoming trip! Not only can my family indulge in one of our favorite meals at Blue Bayou Restaurant, but we can also enjoy Fantasmic! from a reserved viewing area. I also love the World of Color Dessert Party, where we are served tasty treats and savory snacks while sitting at a table and enjoying the show. It is the perfect end to a fun-filled day at Disneyland! Dining reservations can be made up to 60 days in advance, and I recommend booking these experiences as soon as they become available. 

    Janice, thank you again for contacting planDisney. We hope to see you real soon!
