Walt Disney World Orlando Sights

Fantasmic!

Fodor's Review

The Studios' after-dark show wows huge audiences with its special effects and Disney characters. The omnipresent Mickey, in his Sorcerer's Apprentice costume, plays the embodiment of Good in the struggle against forces of Evil, personified by Disney villains such as Cruella DeVil, Scar, and Maleficent. Animated clips of these famous bad guys (and gals), alternating with clips of Disney nice guys (and dolls), are projected onto screens made of water—high-tech fountains

surging high in the air. The epic battle plays out amid water effects and flames, explosions, and fireworks worthy of a Hollywood shoot-'em-up. All this, plus the villainous action, is why small kids may find this show frightening.

Arrive early at the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater opposite the Twilight Zone Tower of Terror. Check ahead for information on show days and times. This show runs two or three times nightly during peak season; fewer times during nonpeak periods. For people with disabilities: Wheelchair accessible. Equipped with reflective captioning and for assisted-listening devices. Arrive at least an hour early and sit toward the rear, near the entrance/exit. Or consider the dinner package, which includes a special block of seating for the show. If you sit in front rows you will get wet.

Pure Disney!

Great time for the family. The seating is very uncomfortable (metal bench) but what ya gonna do. It does get real crowded and takes a while to exit.
