    We will be visiting Disney World from April 10-15, 2010. How can I find out what nights/times and parks the fireworks are during our stay? I know there is a show at Epcot, The Magic Kingdom and Hollywood Studios, but what nights have what?? Thank you!


    That is easy!

    1. Highlight the "Plan" section at the top of the Walt Disney World website.
    2. When the drop down menu appears, simple select the park for which you want to check for show times ("Magic Kingdom Park Hours" for instance).
    3. Once the calendar shows, you can adjust to whatever month you are planning to visit by clicking on the menu to the upper right of the calendar. It typically shows the current month and the next 6 months worth of information.
    4. When you click on an actual date, it will show you the schedule for the park, and major show and event times.

    Now you should find that Wishes and IllumiNations (the fireworks shows at the Magic Kingdom and Epcot, respectively) are held pretty much every night. Fantasmic, in Hollywood Studios, however, is only held a few days a week. Also, unlike the other two, it is a show in a seated amphitheater, so you have to get in line to get a seat to this popular show.

    If you want to see all three, you will want to plan your schedule around this third show.

    I am glad to answer any follow-up questions!

    Have a magical vacation!
