    Fantasmic Schedule

    I saw in a post on here that Fantasmic has cut down to only 2 nights per week. Does anyone know what nights the shows are and if that schedule is going to change during the peak spring break times in March and April?

    I have a friend planning a trip for her daughter April 5-10. She has only been to WDW once and her 9 year old daughter has never been. I am helping them plan their trip, and may be down there for a few days with them as a guide, but I can't find the schedule for Fantasmic.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    The official WDW website will post the show dates once known. I really love that show and have written guest communications requesting that they increase the frequency of the shows. Since most changes are prefaced by, "In response to requests from our guests.." or "In order to make our guests visits more enjoyable..", I thought this would be a way to make a visit more enjoyable. Hopefully several people have made this request.

    The Fantasmic nights have been cut-down during slow season. Last year at this time, they couldn't fill the shows, so they are saving some money by not showing them every night. When spring break season comes around (the time you are coming) you will see an increase in shows to almost every night or whatever is demanded by the guests in the park. So don't worry about it. You will get to see fantasmic!

    Reportedly on February 6th, the show will now happen 3 days a week. That should help. Monday, Thursday and Friday I believe.
    Some people are like Slinkies.

    They aren't really good for anything,
    but they still bring a smile to my face when I push them down a flight of stairs.

    We just returned last week and Fantasmic was only presented on Monday (one show) and Thursday (two shows). Our plans didn't allow us to get there which was a big disappointment since it's one of our favorites. We have been there at this time of year before and Fantasmic was every night. We were bummed!

    Re: Fantasmic Schedule

    I really hate that the shows have been cut, but when I was there last week, we went to see the second showing on Wednesday night and it wasn't full. There was one section on the right of the ampitheater and two sections on the left that were completely empty. I can see why they did what they did, but I don't like not being able to see it when I want to.
