    Getting excited. We arrive this Friday (husband, 3 kids (10,9, and2). Is Fantasmic too loud and scary for the 2 year old? I don't want to wait in line just to leave. We do plan to go again next year, so let me know if it is worth it for her age. Thanks

    Hi Bonnie,

    Fantasmic! is one of my favorite shows in Walt Disney World!  Your older children will love it; however, it is loud and can be VERY scary for small children at certain points during the show.  Villains do make appearances in the show and are often larger than life.  Having said that, every child is different -- I took my 9 year old to see it when he was 3, and he loved it.  My 3 year old daughter, on the other hand, hasn't seen it yet because I know she'll be frightened.
