Bellagio Fountain Schedule Update – November 2016

The Bellagio Fountain song schedule has been updated.   It is a bit of a departure from the previous song order.

You can see the full schedule  in my  Bellagio Fountain Show song list and schedule, which will always have the most recent schedule I have available.
