    Which nighttime show at hollywood, Fantasmic or Star Wars Galactica? don't think we can do both. two 13 yo girls and one 8 yo boy.

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Dianna!

    I love Walt Disney World Resort at all times of the day, but there's something really special about experiencing the theme parks at night. Disney's Hollywood Studios has some of the best evening entertainment, including both of the incredible shows you asked about: Fantasmic! and Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular.

    At the moment, Fantasmic! is currently running at 8:30 p.m. with Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular following immediately after at 9 p.m., and although those times are subject to change throughout the year, I've never quite been able to catch both shows in the same night. You should probably choose Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular if you've got a Jedi youngling in your family, but in my opinion, Fantasmic! is probably going to be the biggest crowd-pleaser for your group. Without spoiling anything about this amazing show, everyone will find something to love when your favorite Disney Characters come together thanks to the power of Mickey's imagination. So if you only have one night to spend at Disney's Hollywood Studios, I would recommend trying to see Fantasmic!

    Since Fantasmic! is such a popular show with guests, seating can fill up pretty quickly so I would recommend arriving 60-90 minutes prior to showtime to get a good seat. If you want some reserved VIP seating, you can also participate in the Fantasmic! Dining Package, which is available at three dining locations at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    Have a magical day, Dianna!
