    I have young children. Would they enjoy Fantasmic or do you think it may scare them? I am also concerned about the wait time before the show. Is this attraction best saved for when they are a little older?

    Hi Robert,

    Fantasmic is a spectacular way to end a day at Hollywood Studios and many young children love it, however, the show can be a bit intense for some little ones.  The performance features several of Disney's villains (don't worry there is a happy ending where good triumphs over evil) that can be frightening.  There are many great clips of the performance available on YouTube.  I would recommend checking a few out to gauge weather the show might be too scary for your little ones.  My children enjoyed the show as early as four-years-old, but, I still catch my five-year-old covering his eyes during some parts.  As for waiting for the performance, during peak seasons, guests do start lining up over an hour before the show.  You can book a special Fantasmic Dining Package, where your family can have lunch or dinner at a select number of restaurants at the Studios and receive vouchers for reserved seating at the show that evening.  This can greatly reduce your waiting time and ensure that you have a fabulous meal before the performance!

    Have a great vacation!
