    I am trying to decide if Fantasmic will be appropriate for my kids. This is our first trip to WDW, son will be 5 and daughter will be almost 3. I'm worried they may fixate on the evil part of the show and am wondering if we should do it next time.


    I'm taking off my Mickey ears and putting on my Mom ears: You know your children best. Go with your gut. If you think you should wait, especially since it sounds like there's gonna be a "next-time," then wait.

    When our family went to Fantasmic for the first time with pre-schoolers, I was unprepared for the dark approach of the show, nevermind the storyline that, quite honestly, was hard for me as an adult to follow!  With a 6-year-old son who's seen Star Wars and other good vs. evil movies, you'd think I'd brush this question off, but I remember being scared at the witch in Snow White. So I'll give you the same advice I give my friends: if you're the least hesitant, then don't see it. Wait until your 3-year-old is old enough to enjoy the pyrotechnics, floats and big picture of good vanquishing evil. 

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
