    Oh FD this is GOOD news. It was down to once a week and then guests started complaining and they popped it up to twice a week. So this is a bigger improvement.

    once a week - who were they trying to kid!

    3 times is somewhat better! imagine if you were only going for a few days though how cross you'd be!

    Well it's an improvement. But the place was packed 7 nights a week so why cut it in the first place.

    Fantasmic days really do add to the crowds now at DHS. I think what we will do next visit is go to DHS on a non Fantasmic day, then on a Fantasmic day....just go in the evening.

    I'm thinking to do the Fantasmic dining package thing. We did it a few years ago for the first time we watched it and the view was ok, but we went back in December and got a front row seat(no package)which was fab! However, it it is going to be so busy when we take our 6 family members for their first trip in May then the package might be the way to go even with poorer seats.

    It is such a shame, though I realise it is expensive. I still can't understand the reason for cutting it when the crowds are there to fill the show. every night.

    I was told by a CM that the park hours for Easter (MK in this instance) are going to be cut, or at least not increased as usual.

    Has anyone heard that? :unsure: What a mob scene that will be, if it's truly what is planned! :eek:

    It is an incredibly popular show. I have said before that cutting the days was a STUPID idea.

    You beat me to posting ths news, Johnie . :tongue:
    I spoke to my friend Claire last night . You may remember me mentioning her before . She is a fabulous waitress at 50's Prime Time and keeps me updated . She said as we get closer to the summer and attendance picks up, they will add additional evenings . Just a guess on her part ... In the summer months, Fantasmic will be back to every evening and perhaps twice at times .

    I agree it's an improvement but should be every night - a mad idea to reduce performances IMHO

    I didn't know it was down to 1x per week either. Thought it was at least 3x. I won't be able to see it this visit but hopefully in December :)

    Do they have more than one showing on a single night, or a later showing when it's Extra Magic Evening Hours?
