Go for it, whichever night you choose. It's a great show to see, and you've got park hoppers, so you might as well get more use out of them.

No, but neither DH nor I liked Fantasmic.

My biggest worry in your circumstance is how much time you will lose at MK for a 20 minute show - leaving MK, driving or bussing to HS, going through bag check, walking to the Fantasmic area, waiting for it to open, waiting for the show to start, etc. Even if I liked Fantasmic, I might not see it on that trip. Better to wait until next time when you might already be at HS in the evening.

Videos of the whole show are available on you tube if you want to get an idea on whether or not your family will like it.

thanks guys! I totally agree that it seems to make sense to skip DTD, but my daughter's highlight of our past trips is getting her BBB make-over And she ALWAYS begs us to eat at rainforrest cafe. But we are already planning to use the bounc back offer so next trip I'm going to do five full days instead of four so we can do full days at each park and two at MK.

We've been to HS twice and both times we left mid day... DD likes it, but doesn't seem to be as mesmorized as she is at the other parks

You could always eat at the Rainforest at AK on your day there... there's an entrance inside the park so that you don't have to fully exit the park. You can have lunch & go right back into the park.

Just a thought... If your daughter was afraid of Ursula then she may be afraid of F! We like it but every time we go without our kids we say how frightened they would be (They are four & two). It is extremely loud And they show every Disney villain. When we saw it in December There were three little girls sitting behind us and they held their ears and cried through the entire show. I felt bad for them. Every kid is different though...just wanted to throw that out there

Umm. I don't think it's as easy of an answer as everyone is saying. There are a lot of factors to consider. Even though everyone is saying yes. I think you need to give it a lot of thought. It's an incredible show but you will be spending time switching parks. And a day and a half at Magic Kingdom is a short amount of time. Just saying you know.

Mon - MK full day
Tues - Epcot full day
Wed - 2/3 day at AK, evening at DTD
Thur - full day MK
Fri - morning at DHS before departing

I know if we do choose to leave for Fantasmic, Thur would logistically be better (smaller crowds at HS since Monday is evening EMH at HS)... but we love ending our trip with Wishes, so really we're thinking of Monday night...

thoughts??
We really, really love Fantasmic, so yes, we would leave MK early to see it! It's a wonderful, fantastic show.

I'm happy to dance with you
I have 2 opinions
We had tried usual things to keep them away, including something like coyote urine, it is sold in hardware stores by us

I would skip DTD and see it for sure. I honestly don't see how there are people that don't like it or its their least favorite. Its an awesome show! Aside from my kids being scared of it(which they're not), there's no way I would miss it.

Ok silly question but what is Fantasmic? Is it the end of the night fireworks show at Hollywood Studios?

Our family loves to watch Fantasmic, however, we personally would not leave MK just to go see it. Not that it can't be done, but because we are not PH people therefore, we like to stay in one park each day. Also, the distance between MK and DHS is much farther out. If you were really wanting to do your plan, then I agree with the PP that suggested seeing it on your Epcot day because that park is much closer (you could even walk there if you were up to it), but then on the other hand, if you are wanting to see Illuminations (I like this show much better), then that could be a problem. Good luck deciding.

Not a silly question at all ...Fantasmic is the show at the end of night for DHS, but only on selected nights (depending on the time of year).
