Is it even possible?

If fantasmic was showing at 8pm;

Wishes was showing at 9pm;

Illumination showing at 10pm, can you make all three?

The biggest issue I see is getting from fantasmic to wishes in time.

Does anyone know if you can make it?

My boys and I always like to hit all four parks our last day. Hitting 3 major rides each park. Looks like the schedule for the fireworks may be as listed above.

My boys thought it would add something to the adventure.

My initial thought would be since we are staying at BLT, we stand in the back right for fantasmic. Thinking the back entrance would be a quicker run to car. Then drive to BLT and run to the entrance for the railroad to see wishes. Followed by the tram to Epcot for illumination.

I realize our viewing will not be ideal, but would be fun to see all three.

Anything's possible but with Fantasmic being 30-35 minutes long and with the time that it takes to get out of the park and then make it to MK,either by car or by bus to the TTC or bus to the Contemporary,the chances you'll make it to MK by the time Wishes begins are probably less than 1%.

I'll just sugarcoat it and say no.

And when is Illuminations at 10:00p? That's very rare.

Barring a jet pack and/or teleportation device.... gonna have to say no, not possible.

You might manage to see the fireworks from Illuminations and Wishes at a distance, from a bus or monorail window. Actually attending the show from a position where you can see and hear what is going on, no.

In the words of Larry The Cable Guy,

That's funny right there.

Not possible.

Unless you're waiting by the gate (and thus would have a crappy view) I don't know how you'd even get out of MK by 10:00.

That's what I was thinking too.

Probably it's Wishes at 10:00, and Illuminations at 9:00?

Looking at last September 29th schedule wishes was at 9pm while illumination was at 10.

Fantasmic wasn't held that night due to TOT 10 mile.

TOT 10 mile is scheduled for October this year.

IF the schedule played no one has attempted this and has been successful? Or failed?

The more I hear it isn't possible the more my boys want to try. Lol

google maps say the drive is 10 mins from HS to BLT.

I am thinking IF we can take 10 mins to get to car from fantasmic we can make it.

Why would you go to the MK to see Wishes when you have a place at BLT that is just as good to watch from? Or you could even watch from the CR, and the go and catch the Monorail to the TTC and get over to EPCOT for Illuminations, if they were to have a 10PM showing.

I may have to settle with wishes in our room if time is against us. The main goal would be inside each park for the shows.

I must be having a brain freeze. What is CR?

Where are you seeing this?

According to http://www.wdwinfo.com/wdwinfo/hours...sttimeout=1000, Illuminations was at 9:00.

My husband and I were able to catch Wishes and Illuminations.
We positioned ourselves near/close to the exit where we could still see everything for Wishes.
Then darted as fast as we could to the monarail and made it just on the other side of the ball to see the fireworks.
I loved it! It was our last day at the parks, and the fireworks are my favorite.
We positioned ourselves in an open spot and used our jackets as a blanket and just sat there and snuggled and watched fireworks.
What a great end to a great week.

So it can be done, but it is tricky.
