Day 5 at Disney World: Hollywood Studios (Part III)

For our last day at Disney World, we headed back to Hollywood Studios just for the evening in order to watch Fantasmic.  We had heard it was the best show at Disney World so we didn't want to miss out on it.  As I said in my last post, it does not play everyday so it wasn't available the previous day which was actually kind of a bonus for us in that the crowds generally stay away from Hollywood Studios when it's not playing.

We didn't leave for Hollywood Studios until later in the afternoon since we were only planning on attending the show and possibly buying another souvenir or two at the park.  We arrived around 6:15 pm and found the line for the show had already started when we got there.  We lined up too and got excellent seats when they let us in at 6:30 pm.  Of course, the show didn't start until 8:00 pm so we had a long wait.  Jeremy was able to sneak out with Connor and waste some time since two year olds simply don't wait for that long in one spot.  They don't make it well known but they will let people in and out of the amphitheatre before the show starts.

Fantasmic - This show did not disappoint and it really was the most spectacular show at Disney with all sorts of special effects such as holograms, lasers, fireworks, and fire set to familiar Disney music.  It's basically a montage of everything Disney all-in-one and we really enjoyed it.  We took plenty of photos and captured a lot of great video as well.  I am just posting the video that I took on our smaller camera and may try adding the good stuff in HD when I have more time  Just a bit of a warning about taking young kids as Disney movies feature lots of villains and almost half of the show is dedicated to these evil forces.  Connor was hugging Jeremy pretty tightly and we have to calm him down after the show.  He seemed satisfied that Mickey Mouse made everything better at the very least.

  1. OMG I wouldn't be able to resist that wall of Disney stuffed animals!

  2. I enjoyed this post, and I'll be catching up on your other Disney details. My five year old just asked me for the first time today if we'll ever be going to Disney World...

    I'm now following thanks to Follow Me, I'm Canadian!

  3. Jenna, we resisted but only because there was no more room in the luggage and we had already bought Connor a huge Winnie the Pooh bear. In a way, it almost feels wrong to disturb that wall.

    This Mom, thanks! I'll check out your blog too. I would love to take a 5 year old to would have a great time.
