    Thanks for your help Stephanie! What are the typical times for Wishes, Illuminations & Fantasmic during the last two weeks of August? Also, how many days a week (and which days) do they usually run?

    Hi Paula!

    I am happy to hear that I was able to help, Thank You so much for sending me another question!  Planning for parades and fireworks are so important, I'm glad to see you are thinking ahead!  Please remember that all dates and times are subject to change, the theme park hours are released around six months in advance which will allow you to make more concrete plans.  

    I was actually at Walt Disney World Resort for the last two weeks of August in 2012 and 2013 and looking back at my Times Guides (yes I still have them) this is what I can tell you.  Wishes Nighttime Spectacular was offered every night at 10:00pm.  The last week of August the time changed to 9:00 a few nights a week.  Illuminations: Reflections of Earth was also showing every night and it's time remained pretty constant at 9:00.  Finally Fantasmic! had two shows every night at 8:30 and 10:00 during the last two weeks in August.

    I hope this information will give you a good starting point for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning.  It has been my experience that by the time you are able to make your Advanced Dining Reservations the Theme Park Hours and Show Times are released in order for you to plan the most magical vacation for your family!  

    If you have any other questions, please let me know.  I would love to hear from you again!
