    Hello panel! My boyfriend and I are going to wdw in December.We are going to four parks animal kingdom,epcot,Hollywood studios,and magic kingdom! I wanted to know all the great shows that we can attend while at these fabulous parks!

    Hi Bianca,

    I love when couples take the Walt Disney World vacation with no kids. Its great to get away and do kid stuff while no one is watching. With that said, I am going to give you my favorite show at each park, and leave the rest up to you.

    Animal Kingdom is the "zoo" of the parks and  is chock full of fun stuff to do for adults. You must check out Festival of the Lion KIng. It is really one of the best shows at Walt Disney World to me. If you liked the Lion King you will love this sampling of the sights and sounds of the movie. When you first arrive, you won't really know what to think based on how the auditorium is laid out. But you will soon be pleasantly surprised about how it all plays out.

    Epcot is loaded with many shows that take place all day throughout the World Showcase. Nothing can compare to IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. This is Epcot's nighttime fireworks and lights show. The show tells the story of planet Earth, synchronized to a great soundtrack with all kinds of special effects. When you find out what time its playing in the evening, make your way to the World Showcase Plaza to find a good viewing spot about 30 minutes prior to show time.

    Hollywood Studios is the theatrical park and like Epcot I have to say that the "must see" is the nighttime extravaganza Fantasmic! This show stars Mickey Mouse and had the most amazing "how did they do that" effects that you'll ever see. Get there about 45 minutes prior to show time to get an awesome seat.

    Magic Kingdom has so much to do as well. I suggest you you hang around at about 3pm for the Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party happens. This is a jammin' time. Put you dancing, clapping, foot stomping shoes on and join the party.
