    I read in one of the Disney guides that the Fantasmic show is too scary for toddlers. It recommends to "skip Fantasmic--it tends to terrify tots." I have two young girls ages 3 & 5. Any advice from the "moms"?

    Hi Jennifer! Fantasmic is a mesmerizing show with appearances by lots of the Disney characters, but some elements of the show can be frightening for young children. My own daughter saw Fantasmic for the first time at age 8, and even at that age, she thought it was very scary. The show can be dark and loud and the Disney villains have prominent roles. As much as I love Fantasmic, I definitely think some young children may find it terrifying, and you certainly wouldn't want your little ones to have nightmares on their vacation. Because every child is different, I recommend that you preview Fantasmic by watching a video of the show on a site like That way, you'll know what to expect and whether it's a show that your children would enjoy.

    Hope this helps you decide. Come visit us again at the Moms Panel if you have more questions!
