By Tanya.  Fantasmic! is the premiere nighttime show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It is truly a spectacular show which follows the storyline of what would happen if we could look into Mickey Mouse’s dreams and nightmares. Fantasmic is filled with pyrotechnics, water projections, music and live entertainment that rival any nighttime show in the Disney Resort. Any evening in the Hollywood Studios park should be capped off with this beautiful display!

Fantasmic! takes all that is wonderful about Disney and rolls it into one amazing adventure! I rank it among the best live entertainment Disney has to offer in the entire resort and highly recommend it for everyone. While this show is recommended for all ages, bear in mind that the show may be loud or intense for younger viewers. Don’t let this discourage you and your family, as young visitors will see every major Disney character (and some surprises) in one fun filled, beautifully choreographed show that ends with the good guys prevailing!

Keep in mind that this show has limited seating and is subject to the evening’s weather. Ask any cast member or check your park map for show times during your visit. I highly recommend you arrive at least an hour prior to show time and enjoy the pre-show entertainers, resting with your family, and doing the “wave” with the crowd. Consider grabbing dinner from a quick serve restaurant or snacking on goodies from the vendors inside the amphitheatre area for your evening dinner. You may also consider making reservations with one of the reserved seating dinner packages Disney offers.

Fantasmic! is an impressive display of Imagineering and a must see attraction in the park. This is not a “fireworks” show. It includes a cast of entertainers, characters, and oh so much more. Get your smile ready, put your camera down, fix your eyes on the stage, and enjoy all there is to take in during the amazing show! You’ll tap your toe, bite your nails, and believe in Magic when it’s all over.

  1. […] I had no idea!  My family has never seen Fantasmic, and I know we are missing out, so we’ll correct that this summer, but I would have almost bet money that it debuted at Disney’s Hollywood Studios first!  Maybe we’ll see it in both parks and decide which is the best!  So tell me, where is your vote for best Fantasmic!, if there is one:  Disneyland or Disney’s Hollywood Studios?  Let me know in the comments, and thanks for stopping by!  Now, please click on the links to see the rest of the great entries!  While you are at it, click on over and read Tanya’s great post about Fantasmic!
