Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- We have a Fantasmic Dining reservation and there are two showings of Fantasmic that day. Which showing do we go to?

- Hi Lori!
Fantasmic! is, well, Fantastic! :-)
This is one of our family's favorite "to-do" events and is always something we look forward to each year...
You really can't go wrong with either showing. I'm not sure the time of year you're going, but, say, during the Fall, they'll normally have 2 showings (1 around 6:30pm and the other around 8pm or closing). So, perhaps I'll put it this way:
If you're looking to cap-off your day with an excellent 25-minute show with lights, fireworks, performance and what-not, go to the end of day Fantasmic! as the perfect send-off to an already fun-filled day.
If you're not big on getting caught in volumes of foot traffic when you leave, go for the earlier Fantasmic! showing. The 8pm Fantasmic! begins at park closing (unless it's Extra Magic Hours night), and although it ends about 30 minutes after park closing, there are still hundreds if not thousands of people departing the park. If you want to be closer to the exit signs around closing, and get a leg up on the other guests, try the earlier time.
Hope Mickey makes all your dreams come true!
