Beauty and the Beast at Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World

Beauty and the Beast Show

Sunset Boulevard

  • Length of show: 25 minutes
  • Seating:  Covered, bench seating
  • Fastpass+:  Yes
  • Schedule:  Character Locator

The classic Disney movie is brought to life in Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage. Watch Belle fall in love with a horrible Beast as she resists the advances of the vile, selfish Gaston. The show features Chip, Mrs. Potts, Cogsworth, Lumiere and the beautiful Disney dance troupe.

The easiest show to score quality seats with little waiting is the first show. Otherwise, arrive 15 to 20 minutes early for the best seats.


Disney Jr Live on Stage at Hollywood Studios

Disney Junior Dance Party (Coming Soon)

Animation Courtyard

  • Length of show: 25 minutes
  • Seating:  Limited seating around edges of room
  • Fastpass+:  Yes

This show rarely fills to capacity.


Fantasmic at Hollywood Studios

Fantasmic!

Sunset Boulevard – Hollywood Hills Amphithheater

  • Length of show: 30 minutes
  • Seating:  Bench seating with no backs
  • Fastpass+:  Yes
  • Schedule:  Character Locator

Fantasmic! is Hollywood Studios’ evening spectacular. It is held in a 10,000 seat outdoor amphitheater, so the show could be cancelled in the event of lightning. You’ll see Mickey Mouse use all the powers of his imagination to overcome the worst Disney villains.

The show uses water screen technology, live performers, characters, lighting, lasers and pyrotechnics to tell the story. Arrive an hour early or attend the later show when it is offered to avoid crowded conditions. Some restaurants offer Fantasmic! dining packages that provide reserved seats.

Small children may be affected by the intensity of the show.

Arrive at least 30 minutes prior to show


For the First Time in Forever at Hollywood Studios

For the First Time in Forever – A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration

Hyperion Theater

  • Length of show: 30 minutes
  • Seating:  Indoor air conditioned, Individual padded seats
  • Fastpass+:  Yes
  • Schedule:  Character Locator

Inside the Premiere Theater, Princess Anna and Queen Elsa join the Royal Historians of Arendelle for a retelling of the history of their kingdom amidst projections, lighting and special effects. Guests will be invited to join in special sing-along moments from the film’s soundtrack. At the end of the performance, guests might find themselves becoming “Honorary Citizens of Arendelle.”


Indiana Jones Stunt Spectacular at Hollywood Studios

Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Show

Echo Lake

  • Length of show: 30 minutes
  • Seating:  Covered bench seating
  • Fastpass+:  Yes
  • Schedule:  Character Locator

The Indy Jones Epic Stunt Show is an original icon of Hollywood Studios. It displays three scenes from the original Raiders of the Lost Ark. You will see the idol and rolling ball scene, the fight scene and the airplane scene with climatic explosions.

Willing adult volunteers can become part of the actual show. It is a terrific show and Indiana Jones often meets following the show with a few guests who are willing to wait.

The theater only holds about 2,000 people, so arrive early for a good seat. I would recommend 15-30 minutes prior to the next show.

Parts of the show or the entire show may be cancelled in inclement weather.

Voyage of the Little Mermaid

Animation Courtyard

  • Length of show: 20 minutes
  • Seating:  Indoor, air conditioned, padded seats
  • Fastpass+:  Yes

Arrive a few minutes early for each continuous show. The show offers FASTPASS seasonally.

  1. Do you know if the Galactic Dessert Parties will run through September 2019. I have a feeling not – thanks to opening of Galaxy Edge – but hoping someone will know!

  2. Hi Kenny – Similar question to above. We’re going to DW in Aug 2018 and it looks like Star Wars fireworks aren’t showing up. Is it just that they haven’t put it up yet or is it not playing in August (on the site, its showing through July). Thanks!

  3. Hi, if the park hours are schedule from 9am to 9pm and fantasmic only at 830. Is it possible to catch most of the star wars fireworks show after fantasmic? Or we shouldnt mind to rush to it?

  4. Thanks for quick response! Is galactic spectacular typically each night, too? Planning a trip for a friend. It will be their first trip. They have boys who will be 10 and 6. A lot of people are warning her that they don’t think her boys will like magic kingdom. I think they will. Thoughts? Trying to recommend unique dining or entertainment experiences boys might like. They will be there in October for the Not so scary Halloween.

  5. What are the typical nights for the Fantasmic show in the Fall? I know this is speculation on your part, but thought you might have historic records.

  6. No Fantasmic shows or Star Wars fireworks are shown on the calendar for May 2017. Do you think that these will be added for that month?

  7. We’re visiting Oct 16-21 2016 and noticed you don’t show any Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Fireworks in October – is this a limited time engagement or have fall dates not been posted yet? I’ve got 2 little Star Wars fans who want to do as much as possible. Thanks!

  8. Hi Kenny
    I was wondering if I have a Tier 1 fast pass for Hollywood studios (Toy Story Midway) and 2 other tier 2 passes (Indiana Jones & Frozen), after I use the Toy Story fastpass, can I then switch one of my tier 2 fastpasses to another tier 1 attraction e.g. Beauty & the Beast? Thanks

  9. Hi Again Kenny
    Don’t know if you saw my previous message so I’m sending it again. We’re planning an early day at Hollywood studios in July with an afternoon break for the little ones and returning around 6:00 p.m. for dinner, our evening Frozen fast pass and Fantasmic first showing (dining package). Based on the current schedule for shows we will have to do the first Beauty and the Beast show (no fastpass). My question is, if we do the 11:45 show, will be able to make it to the Indiana Jones show at 12:30 (we now have a fastpass) since they are at opposite ends of the park? As usual, your thoughts are appreciated
