20 Years of Fantasmic! by
I'd like to give a shout out to
Fantasmic! I do think Disneyland's version is
better since I love the setting on the Rivers of
America. If you want a good seat you should get
there at least half an hour before the show
starts, but I'd get there earlier if I were you.
I think Disneyland should get a Fastpass system
for the show like World of Color does. Those of
you who have been to Disney World have Fantasmic!
too, but I don't think you know the magic you
are missing over at Disneyland.
The show starts off with a
narrator who talks about imagination. The lights
then go up and music begins to play as lights
blink around. Mickey appears and he then shoots
off fireworks from his hand! He then switches to
a water screen. Some sections that are in
Disneyland, but not in Disney World's versoin
that I love are the Pink Elephants on Parade
sequence, Pinocchio scene, and the Jungle book!
The best part of Fantasmic is the Peter Pan
Towards the end of the show the
villains try and attack Mickey and soon
Maleficent comes out and turns into an 8 foot
tall dragon that actually breathes fire! It's
really cool! You can find Maleficent in Disney
World's version too, but I think the Disneyland
segment with her is ten times better.
At the very end you can find all
the characters aboard the Mark Twain. The show
has been around for twenty years now and I think
its an awesome show that people should see in
both Walt Disney World and Disneyland and one
point or another.
How many times have you seen the
show? What are your favorite parts? Let's talk
about it on the forums! The show is so cool, but
I think Mickey describes the show the best with
his last line: Some imagination, huh?
