I know I've written before about my love for Fantasmic!, but I wanted to briefly tell about a little secret Jess and I discovered by accident on our trip last June.
When you're in the Hollywood Hills Amphitheatre taking in the show, be sure to stay in your seat right till the end. Now, once the 'exit' music begins to play, wait about 2 minutes.
I know what you're thinking: there's a big rush now, how in the world do I get out easily?
Instead of heading up the nearest set of stairs, walk along the bottom of the theatre viewing area, right by the water. Then, proceed to go right up the closest stairs to the exit.
It shaves off what can be a 15-20 minute zombie-like walk at the top of the theatre. Jess and I got out in less than 5 minutes. We didn't strategize this, but on the bus ride back to Animal Kingdom Lodge afterwards, we suddenly realized the time we saved!
So there you go..our Fantasmic! secret, revealed!
Enjoy the show!
