Hunting for a common thread in Disney’s scheduling choices sometimes can be a grueling task. In 2009, Disney has decided to stop presenting Fantasmic as a daily offering at the Studios park. At first this looked like some sort of schedule based on only showing it certain days of the week, but then as more months were added to the calendar the days on which the show was offered varied.
It now appears the common trend is that any day that the Studios park is not scheduled to be open beyond 7pm there is no Fantasmic showing scheduled. Interestingly enough, the same applies to the Magic Kingdom in 2009 with the Wishes fireworks. In short: if it closes at 7pm, no fireworks.
Epcot continues to remain open until 9pm nightly offering Illuminations and Animal Kingdom does not offer a nighttime show.
