    I have a 4 and 5 year old girl that love the princesses with their princes and was considering fantasmic. I read somewhere that it may be too scary for little ones. Wanted to see if it would be recommended? Thanks!

    Hi Jessica,

    The question about whether something is too scary for a child really depends on the child. I have twins with entirely different fright thresholds. When they were five, one of them LOVED Fantasmic and the other spent a good part of the performance hiding under my sweater.  The "scary" part involves some fire, a very non-realistic snake, and a disappearing Mickey Mouse. Probably the best tip I can give you is to go to YouTube and watch the show yourself. (Just search for Fantasmic on that site.) You'll be able to see what the various elements are and determine for yourself whether you think those would be fear triggers for your daughters.

    If you decide that you're not ready for Fantasmic, there are some other places to see princesses and princes together, the afternoon parade features couples. And my favorite Disney couple pairing takes place every night at 1900 Park Fare. Both Cinderella and Prince Charming greet guests at this meal and sometimes they dance together.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
