    Need your advice! I have 3 boys (5, 7, and 9) and trying to decide if I have time to watch Fantasmic and the Star Wars show on the same night. I see Fantasmic begins at 7:00pm and Star Wars at 745pm. Thoughts? If not, which should we choose? Thanks so much

    Hi Laurie!

    This is a tough one!  Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios has a run time of approximately 25 minutes.  I think you will have enough time to make your way to see Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular, but you'll have to grab any available viewing spot you can at that point.  We claimed a spot about 45 minutes early to see the Star Wars show a couple of weeks ago and I can tell you from experience that it does fill up.  My suggestion if you're set on seeing both fantastic shows is to grab seats for Fantasmic! near the exit of the theater so you can be among the first Guests out.  I would imagine that a good amount of Guests are planning the same thing you are.  Walk along Sunset Boulevard toward Hollywood Boulevard and try to get as center as you can.  The Star Wars show lights up all around The Great Movie Ride, including the neighboring buildings.  

    Have a magical day!
