    I know Fantasmic is currently closed. I am curious to know if in years past if Fantasmic and World of color runs nightly, or just on the weekends. We are planning a trip mid September, and I am curious what days they might be running. Thanks!

    Hiya, Jaxon!

    A warm welcome to you from all of us at planDisney! We're happy to see you here with your question. I'm excited for you to be visiting the Disneyland Resort and you'll get to see the Resort decorated for the spooky Halloween season! I hope you like costumes and candy because you'll get to see plenty of both!

    In past years the schedule for nighttime spectaculars would vary in the off season, with some shows happening only on the weekends. During the busier summer season, both Fantasmic! and World of Color ran nightly with the potential for two showings an evening. Disneyland Resort's summer season usually ended around mid to late August. The fall season is then marked by Halloween decorations going up, which will take place on September 1 this year. It's difficult to predict what the nighttime spectacular schedule will be like but I would definitely recommend checking the Events Calendar often to see when your dates are updated. If World of Color is high on your list, consider making reservations for the World of Color Dessert Party. It's a wonderful way to see the show and you get a reserved seat and a delicious plate of goodies!

    There will be plenty going on at the time of your visit. Oogie Boogie Bash will be happening at Disney California Adventure on select nights, so be aware of early Park closures. If you are interested in attending, it would be a great way to enjoy the Park with much lighter crowds and a festive Halloween atmosphere! Tickets go fast, however, as it's one of the more popular Disneyland After Dark Events. Also, please note that Wondrous Journeys will be replaced by Halloween Screams at Disneyland Park after August 31. The Disney Parks Blog has stated that Halloween Screams will run nightly through October 31. 

    As you can see, Jaxon, that's a lot to take in and consider for your visit. As your trip draws closer, we'll get a better idea of the entertainment schedule and you'll be better able to plan your visit. If you have more questions for us, feel free to write again anytime! We'd be happy to help.

    Wishing You a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!

Meet the Panelist: Al, California

Ahoy there from the heart of Steinbeck Country in central California! I've been visiting the Disneyland Resort since childhood and fell in love with the sense of absolute immersion that the Imagineers have achieved. My favorite attraction is Pirates of the Caribbean because where else can you go from a California day to an evening boat ride in the bayou with "salty old pirates"? I'm a veterinarian and an all-around Disney geek and enthusiast. I'd love to help you plan your next Disneyland trip! Learn More About Al
