    Looking at the January 2020 schedule, both 'Fantasmic!' and 'Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular' start at 8:00 PM. Can I see both of them?

    Hello and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  I am so excited to hEAR that you will be visiting the Walt Disney Resort in just a couple of months!

    Fantasmic! and Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular are both incredible shows that I think every guest should experience.  That being said, it is difficult to experience them both on the same night.  I took a quick look at the entertainment schedule for Disney's Hollywood Studios for the week of your visit, and you are correct.  It does look like Fantasmic! and Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular are both scheduled for 8:00 p.m. during that week.

    If you have time to visit Disney's Hollywood Studios on two separate evenings, then I would recommend experiencing these shows on different nights.  If your trip itinerary cannot accommodate two visits, you will have to choose the show which interests you more.  I know that decision seems impossible!  If you really cannot choose between these two amazing experiences, I would advise you to watch most of Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular,  and then make your way to the Fantasmic! amphitheater.  If there is still space available in the standing room only section at the back of the amphitheater, then you could watch the end of Fantasmic! from there.

    The good news is that no matter which of these shows you choose, you really can't go wrong either way.  I think you will enjoy either one of these nighttime spectaculars immensely.  Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
