[QUOTE=Soundgod;975427]…Fantasmic is different. Since the beginning of this year, they cut it back from nightly performance to only a couple performances a week. However, even though it has been cut back, they still seem to be adding extra performances and sometimes even adding a second performance when the crowd levels are up…[/QUOTE]
I think IllumiNations is and always has been every night. We almost got burned by the fact that Fantasmic is not. For June, it was only 4 nights a week- usually twice per night. We got rained out (both shows) the first time we went, and when we went back (2nd to last night of our trip) it wasn’t showing. Luckily, we noticed that before we went into the park since we didn’t have Park Hopper. Had we gone in, we would have been left out because we had to see Wishes one more time on our last night. As it was, we just took the shuttle back to our car and headed to Magic Kingdom instead.
We were able to see Wishes that night, and headed back to Hollywood on our last night to see Fanstasmic. Definitely worth it!
Be sure to check the schedule for Fastasmic- you won’t want to miss it! For the early show, we got there about 1 1/2 beforehand and there were several hundred people lined up already!
