    They've added another Fantasmic! on Feb. 11. Will this make it easier to get into the earlier show? We can't go to the later show. What time should we plan on getting there for the 7 p.m. show? Thanks for all of your help!!! Us planners appreciate it!

    Hi Kristy,

    Because Fantasmic! is now held on select evenings, all the performances are very crowded.  The earlier shows are especially popular for those traveling with small children. Don't give up hope though, plan for the 7 p.m. show if its your only option. 

    If you've never seen it, it is worth the wait.  Seating begins 90 minutes prior to the show and I'd recommend that.  Make sure you have everyone in your party together when you enter to make sure you get enough room for everyone in your party.  You will have plenty of time to go to the restroom or send someone for food before the show starts.  Snacks and restrooms locations are available in the theater.

    If you're traveling with children, bring something to keep them entertained during the wait (you can only do "the wave" for so long).

    Remember that because it is an outdoor venue, the performance may be cancelled due to inclement weather.

    Have a great trip!
