Disney’s Hollywood Studios has several family-friendly experiences, like Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway, Toy Story Mania!, Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, and much more.

Fantasmic! has brought in many Disney Park Guests into Disney’s Hollywood Studios after being closed for two years. As a matter of fact, crowds have been so massive for the show that Disney has elected to make a change to accommodate even more Guests through the rest of the years.

Here’s a look at the showtimes that have changed since the attraction reopened:

  • November 14: Showtimes at 8:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. (previously only 8:00 pm)
  • November 17 through December 3: Showtimes at 7:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. (previously only 9:00 p.m.)
  • December 5 through December 25: Showtimes at 7:30 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. (previously only 9:00 p.m.)
  • December 26 through January 7: Showtimes at 8:00 p.m/ and 9:30 p.m. (previously only 8:00 p.m.)

Other showtimes have not changed in 2023.

This show will leave your entire family smiling from ear-to-ear!
