Ditto on skipping dtd. Depending on when you leave ak, you might be able to see more than fantasmic at hs. You could use your last morning at hs and skip over to dtd then if there is something you really want to do there
If you haven't seen it, I would hop over and check it out. It is my least favorite of all the nighttime shows, but it is a good show. We try to see it every trip. My 2 year old DD LOVES it. She talked about it for days after seeing it on our last trip.
She didn't love the Voyage of LM so much... I think Ursela scared her, so last trip she wouldn't even go in there. Disney Jr is closed while we're there and we might see Beauty and the Beast if we have time, but we've seen it a few times...
That being said... your have AwesOME suggestions... We can always stay late at DHS and DH can drive through late while DD and I sleep in the car... so I think we may see BATB after all... I'd hate to miss it
Also, we could try and do fantasmis DTD night... I think it's earlier that night anyway AND we won't have to fight the EMH crowd... THANK YOU!!!
For a 4YO there is just as much to do at DHS I would never do 1/2 day there its my daughters favorite place of all 4. She is 7.
Fantasmic is so great we did the dining package this year that comes with VIP tix to the show
Oh and I am another vote for skipping DTD
Swap evening at DTD for DHS. The show is usually late so if you head over 6/7ish your hubby can ride ToT and RnR while you and your DD are at TSM and Woody and Buzz. Whoever finishes first head over to find seats, grab a snack and wait for Fantasmic show.
Departure morning if some one didn't get to do something at DHS, run over and do it at rope drop then hit DTD, shop, have lunch and hit the road.
I wouldn't leave MK for Fantasmic. I've seen Fantasmic once and it wasn't worthwhile, IMO. If I have a child or children at some point, I will probably take them once so that they can see it, but I wouldn't make a habit of it unless they absolutely love it.
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
we have been twice and never seen Fantasmic -- I have it scheduled in for our upcoming trip though!
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.
We really, really love Fantasmic, so yes, we would leave MK early to see it! It's a wonderful, fantastic show.
