Fantasmic!



Last weekend I was able to catch the new Fantasmic show on the Rivers of America, and although the Dragon is not quite ready for prime time, it was still extremely enjoyable! If you are looking for an interesting or plausible plot, then keep moving. If you want to enjoy fantastic special effects and an amazing light show performed on the water set to some of Disney’s best music, then sit back down and watch Fantasmic. The whole contrived thing about Mickey’s imagination...c’mon, give me a break. Who comes up with this crap and actually has the nerve to call it a story?!? There is no way that the audience watching this show for the first time could figure out the "plot" on their own. Yet, visually it is spectacular, as is the music. Seeing the Mark Twain and Columbia sail by, chock full of your Disney favorites...it is one of the coolest things you can see at Disneyland. These photos are presented in the order of the program —but of course.



























It definitely does need one more piece of “oomph”' without the Ursula float, it does seem like something is missing. The upcoming Dragon will surely be that missing piece. See more Fantasmic photos at my regular website.

I have mixed feelings about Fantasmic; people obviously love it, but I just wish it didn't impact Frontierland so drastically. The good thing is that all those people waiting for the show are not making the lines for attractions any longer!
