    Can a guest view both Fantasmic at 9:00 and also get to the Halloween Screams with Fireworks at 9:30 on the same night?

    What a spooktacular plan, Brenda! 

    You are talking about seeing two of my favorite nighttime spectaculars at the Disneyland Resort. Yes, it is possible to watch both Fantasmic! and Halloween Screams on the same night. There is a twist, though. Your experience may not be exactly as you might expect. But it is definitely worthwhile!

    Normally, you might expect to view Halloween Screams from the Central Plaza in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. But, as you may have guessed, the logistics of moving from the viewing area for Fantasmic! along the Rivers of America to the Central Plaza in the three minutes between the two shows is quite problematic. But, don’t fear. Oogie Boogie won’t ruin this double feature for you! That is because the Rivers of America is also a designated viewing area for Halloween Screams.

    That’s right! You can remain in your Fantasmic! viewing area location and also watch Jack Skellington, the “Master of Scare-omonies” spirit you away into the not-so-scary adventure of Halloween Screams. The water screens used for Fantasmic! burst into vibrant colors to show the same projections that you would observe on the face of Sleeping Beauty Castle. And Pirate's Lair on Tom Sawyer Island even gets in on the action with additional projections and laser lights. On select nights, when Halloween Screams is accompanied by fireworks, you will still enjoy an excellent view of the pyrotechnic display launched from behind Disneyland Park. My family and I enjoyed this unique vantage point for Halloween Screams just a few weeks ago. We were able to enjoy the show from our seating location in the preferred viewing area designated for Fantasmic! Dining Package guests. I couldn’t imagine a more dreadfully delightful way to experience these two amazing shows!

    I hope you have a frightfully fun time at the Disneyland Resort, Brenda!
