Showtimes Now Available

Share This!

If you’re a Lines user, you’ll know that we list show schedules so that’s it’s easy to see what’s coming up when you’re touring. Now you can get the Showtimes on the website as well.

We display showtimes in three places. Firstly, if you go to the Crowd Calendar, click on an individual day, you’ll be able to see parades and fireworks times for the day (these have been here since mid-September). You can also see parade and firework times, in a slightly different format, in the new Showtimes page (and you can jump around to various days).

Thirdly, and most interestingly, you can now a full showtime schedule for each Park and for each day (see Magic Kingdom’s Showtimes). You’ll see a full showtime schedule, broken up by lands and shows. You can then sort the showtimes by time or by show. We display park hours and crowd estimates on the right-hand side of the screen, and you can scroll forward to tomorrow’s schedules, or yesterdays, or jump to an arbitrary day in the future or past.

The showtimes are compiled nightly via, walt disney world entertainment, and a variety of sources — but the schedules may change at any time. Two notes: one, while Disney schedules the parade and fireworks times far in advance, they typically don’t schedule some of the smaller shows until a week or two in advance. Second, because Disney doesn’t release full show schedules themselves (and their website is often inaccurate), there can be some conflicting information.

Let us know what you think — and we hope this makes planning your trip a bit easier!

  • I love this new addition to the site! For me, the shows are just as important to schedule into my touring plan as the attractions — they are so much a part of WDW. Thank you for adding this new feauture. I love it!

  • OK, I’m hyperventilating. This site just keeps getting better and better–thanks!

  • Yay!!! Great work Henry. I just love that the site and lines keep getting better and better. (You know what would be really great? Being able to see the touring plans on Lines! Not only would it be super user friendly, it would save a lot of trees. Good for touring commandos and the environment, could it get any better than that?!)

    • Thanks Amy, and thanks for the suggestion. It’s definitely on the list. I still need to figure out the interface a bit more.
