Fantasmic! Showtimes Moved Up 30 Minutes Starting December 26th



Starting December 26th, the Fantasmic! nighttime spectacular at Hollywood Studios will be changing its start times to be 30 minutes later.

What Are The New Showtimes For Fantasmic!?

Currently, showtimes are set at 7:30 PM and 9:00 PM, and this schedule will remain in place for now, but from December 26th to January 7th showtimes will be moved to 8:00 PM and 9:30 PM.

Showtimes After The Parks Closing Time?

This new scheduling update puts the second performance at starting after the park closes at 9:00 PM, which is an interesting choice, lending to notion that Disney theme park’s closing time is more of a “last call” than a hard line in the sand to start heading home (or back to your hotel). Although, on New Year’s Eve Hollywood Studios is scheduled to close at 12:00 PM midnight for the New Year’s celebrations.

Fantasmic! Will Be Reduced To One Performance Per Night In January

To add to the ever-changing schedule of the show, starting January 8th through at least March 2nd, Fantasmic! will be reduced to one performance per night, which will happen at 8:00 PM each night.

A Top-Tier Disney Nighttime Spectacular

If you haven’t yet experienced the recently updated Fantasmic! show at Hollywood Studios, it’s safely in our family’s top position for entertainment at Walt Disney World theme parks, and we can’t recommend it enough! We recently purchased a Fantasmic! dining package, and found that to be an excellent value for the money spent, and really enjoyed having a reserved section to sit in with an excellent view of the show.
