hopefully they extend this through August

Good news! An extension of park hours (amd activities) is the opposite of a reduction of park hours. If any of you were complaining about the reduction, you should be applauding the extension. With Animal Kingdom's, World Showcase's, and Hollywood Studios's hours having been extended recently, I think they've done a commendable job of healing the park hours portion of the cuts.

After 2 or 3 days of complaints by people that want to see both, maybe they'll push SW back to 9:45

I think F! Runs about 24 minutes.

In this situation, doesn't Fantasmic end after Star Wars has started? July 1 and 2 are 9:45 shows, why can't this be consistent?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but if there is only a 9:00 F! Then the only way to see both SW and F! Is pretty much to sprint from Hollywood Hills to Hollywood Boulevard...Why not 9:45 like every other fireworks show at DHS?

Thank the lord! I was wondering why it was closing so early.. I was worried. Because the shows take so much time at HS, and I want to see them all when I go down. Hard to work the shows around the fastpasses, lunch and dinner when the park hours are so tight.

Even then, Howard Shore was proving his composing genius.

Well it was more a case of the hours were cut, and they realized it would be a problem. They have now been restored close to where they should have been in the first place.

Never underestimate the power of Star Wars.
