    How far in advance are the Disney World website's calendars accurate? I thought the Disney Jr. Live Show returns 2/15 but I don't see it on the calendar anytime that next week. The Fantasmic show is listed at 7 which is when the park closes. Any guidance?

    Hi Tracy!

    This is a great question.  Disney tries to release accurate calendar information at least seven months before so that guests can easily make dining reservations about six months in advance.  However, sometimes Disney doesn't make it and most of the time Disney will tweak the calendars even right up to the day of.  Making "last minute" calendar changes especially happens during the busiest times of the year at Walt Disney World; for example, Disney may decide to extend park hours or add a show of Fantasmic, etc at the "last minute". 

    With regards to Fantasmic being listed for 7 pm when the park closes, that is typically when it is performed when the park closes early.  Basically, all of the other attractions will close at 7 pm so you have to be in line before 7 pm; if you are in line, Disney will allow you to stay in line until you get a chance to experience the attraction.  So in some sense, when the park is about to close, the options are to leave, watch Fantasmic, or do a little shopping! 

    I hope this helps!  Please write back with more questions!
