    We are planning on going to Fantasmic at 6:30 on Nov 22 or Nov 25. Will we have time to see Illuminations at 9:00 the same night? Is this a good idea or will it be too much? I have 2 daughters (5 and 7).

    Hi Kristen,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  I have two daughters about the same ages as yours, so I can tell you that they are perfect ages for visiting Walt Disney World!

    You'll have plenty of time to both Fantasmic! and Illuminations on the same night.  Fantasmic! lasts about 25 minutes, so that will give you about two hours to make your way over to Epcot to stake out a spot and grab a snack before Illuminations.

    I would recommend taking the boat from Disney's Hollywood Studios to Epcot, it will bring you right to the International Gateway entrance of the park.

    Have a great time!
