    What times are Fantasmic? The WDW Website only lists 9:00pm, but I read on this panel that the show is at 10:30pm also. I will be coming from Epcot where I have an ADR at 6:45pm. I am afraid I would miss the earlier one. Love your panel!!!!

    The showtimes for Fantasmic vary widely depending on the crowd levels, time of year, and time it gets dark. On some nights there is only one show and on others there are two. Sometimes the shows are as early as 7:00 and on others they're as late as 10:30 or 11:00. You should go by the information for Fantasmic times that you see on the WDW calendar here for your own travel dates.

    I have a feeling that with a 6:45 dinner at Epcot, you would miss Fantasmic if you are going at time with only the one show at 9:00. Let's say you were seated right on time at Epcot. You're probably going to be done eating in the neighborhood of 8:00. Depending on which restaurant you're at, it could take 15 minutes or more to exit the park and get to a boat or bus headed to Disney's Hollywood Studios. The transportation to DHS will take 15 minutes, if everything is running absolutely smoothly. In reality it probably takes more like half an hour. Already you're at 8:45 and you still have to clear DHS security, enter the park and walk to the Fantasmic amphitheater. I suppose it is just barely possible to make it, but there is a good possibility that the theater will be full. If you're feeling lucky, you could try it, but don't be too disappointed if things don't work out.

    Hope this helps.
