    Hey! We’re getting so excited for our October visit... but I’m concerned that we’ll miss fantasmic and the fireworks as we were planning on visiting tues-thurs. how likely is it these will be on at the weekend only? Thanks

    Welcome back, Judith!

    Thanks again for bringing another great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I can't wait for your fall trip to the Happiest Place on Earth. To see a detailed schedule of all activities, shows, fireworks, and parade entertainment at both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, make sure you visit the Daily Events Schedule online. This is typically updated six weeks in advance. Here you can see what nighttime spectaculars and entertainment are planned for the exact days of your visit.

    Keep in mind that October is Halloween Time at the Disneyland Resort, and during select nights Disneyland Park will close early for Mickey's Halloween Party. This separately ticketed event is a spooktacular way to celebrate the season with special entertainment, Character meets, trick-or-treating, and an opportunity to dress in your Halloween best. If you attend this amazing party you will also get the opportunity to view the party-exclusive Frightfully Fun Parade and Halloween Screams Fireworks.

    With so much to see and do at the Disneyland Resort, I just know you will have a magical vacation. Please return if you have any other questions, and have a Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah day!
