Time of Cinematic Spectacular on Oct 29/30

On Oct 29 & 30 the park hours have changed from closing at 6pm, to 7:30pm

It says the cinematic show will not play on dates up to 28 Oct, and then 31st Oct until end of HHN season - which seems to indicate the show will play on the Oct 29 & 30 (which are non HHN event nights)

So if it is playing o those nights - with a park closing at 7:30pm, what time is it likely to show - will it be at 7:30pm at park closing, or earlier - will it be dark enough?

Also, anyone know what time the parade plays - is it 2pm or 5pm?

I was at the Studios in early September. Originally the park hours were stated at 9-6, then closer to my arrival the hours were changed to 9-8:30 on the days that the Cinematic Spectacular was offered with the show at 8:30. If this stays constant, it would be a good guess that the show will be be offered at 7:30. (Also, when I was there the parade was at 5:00, but if you have kids who are fans of any of the characters who are featured in the parade, be on the lookout (or ask someone with the park) for mini character events featuring one set of characters with their parade float, they would do a dance and then it was very easy to do a meet and great and photos.

Hi - when you say 'most places closed early' what do you mean? And what do you mean by early ?

Some of the stores and food places shut down early. Went to grab dinner and she said that there boss was closing them down 30 minutes early due to lack of guests. Shows all done by 5pm. Rides close promply by 8. It was so slow longest line i saw was Despicable me for 35min. I just went later in the day and walked on. Everything else less then 10 minutes. Shows 1/2 full.

Keep in mind...food service ends 30 minutes prior to park closing all the time.
