    We are going to WDW for 4 days (with park hopper) Dec 22-25, 2018. We've reservations for lunch at restaurant so we can get seating to Fantasmic 1st show (whatever time that is). Will we also be able to make Jingle bell/jingle bam? Thanks!

    Hi Jim,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and thank you for your question. My family recently returned from a wonderful holiday visit to Walt Disney World, and I'm so excited that your family gets to spend Christmas together right in the middle of all the merry magic. 

    The Fantasmic! Dining Package is a great way to enjoy a delicious meal and reserve a seat for one of my favorite shows, and I think you’ve made a great choice since Christmas can be very busy in the parks. 

    I checked the Park Hours for the week you’re visiting, and it looks like Fantasmic! will show once each night, with Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! showing 30 minutes later. Jim, the Fantasmic! theater holds a lot of people, and it often takes around 20 minutes to unload after the show, depending on where you’re sitting. On the night my family attended, we didn’t arrive at Hollywood Boulevard until Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!'s finale. Our strategy was to see Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM! one night, and return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios a second night to see Fantasmic! Remember that Park Hours are always subject to change, so please check a Times Guide or ask a Cast Member in case something changes.

    I just love Disney’s Hollywood Studios at night, and it’s even more gorgeous during the Flurry of Fun in the holiday season. Don’t miss the snow on Sunset Boulevard during Sunset Seasons Greetings or the holiday addition to For The First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along, and be sure to take the time to walk around and enjoy the beautiful, vintage holiday decorations while sipping a flight of hot chocolate and munching on holiday treats. 

    Wishing you a merry and magical vacation,
