FOF is also at 3PM only Today -Thursday this week. I'd like to think MK is working on improving FOF but, it's probably just BTY Rehearsals?

Wonder why?

For those planning visits to Magic Kingdom in July, there are currently 2 dates where the 12pm performance of Festival of Fantasy is not on the schedule: July 15 and 23.

Looks like Fantasmic! moves from 9 pm to 9:30 pm in August as sunset moves up and could really accommodate an 8:30 show. It seems unlike Disney to unnecessarily keep the park open later into the August slow season. Any ideas why? Doesn’t seem like a calendar error, either, as the dining packages are available through 7 pm starting the first Sunday of August.

Every time I try to see this thing it breaks down somehow. I was super close to going last night but had something come up. I was feeling down about it, so it's nice to know it would have left me still trying to see the show with everything functioning.

Fantasmic was on D mode last night. First, Mickey didn’t pop up at the beginning, so they had to restart. Then, the water screens didn’t fire on, so they had a 30 minute downtime fixing that. Finally, the show begins and Aladdin doesn’t jump, Jafar’s snake doesn’t move, and there’s no magic lamp. It was interesting, to say the least.

I thought they were going to? or it was rumored. Yikes poor FoF. Maybe the lack of fixing FoF is because they plan on a new parade in 2024 🤣.

Hope that they'll restore the FoF performer lineup?

Considering the parade was made to celebrate Walt Disney's 100th Birthday. Share A Dream Come True Parade's score being slow was actually fitting since it gave the parade a relaxed and peaceful tone. Especially since it used to have a show-stop variation between 2001 till 2003.
