    We will be visiting HS for the first time with our preschooler and toddler on 12/6. Do you have a recommendation for which show - Jingle Bell Jingle Bam or Fantasmic - we should plan to attend? The timing (8pm and 8:30pm) seems too close to catch both.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Marianne! Thanks for stopping by to bring us your question.

    I’m super excited you are planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort during the most wonderful time of the year, and my personal favorite, Christmas! The entire resort turns into a jolly wonderland of chEAR with beautiful seasonal décor, enchanting special events, and the smells and tastes of the season to make you feel all Christmassy the entire time you are there. It’s the best!

    Marianne, with little tykes of my own, I’m thrilled you are planning a visit to Disney’s Hollywood Studios during your stay. My daughter is a huge Disney Junior fan and getting to meet her favorite characters and experience Disney Junior - Live on Stage! is always a hit!

    My family fell in love with Disney’s Prep & Landing, a Christmas TV special that aired a few years back. Well, the main characters, Wayne and Lanny, are featured in the Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! Nighttime spectacular, so for my crew, experiencing this special Holiday projection and firework show was a must. And we loved it! Fantasmic! is a classic and it’s one of my favorites. But there are some moments that are a little scary for my little ones, so this was another deciding factor that helped us choose.

    I hope this information helps you as you continue to dream up and plan your unforgettable visit to the most magical place on earth! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us for any additional tips, advice, or questions you might have for your upcoming visit.

    See ya real soon!
