Vote of the week: What is Disney's best night-time show?
Thanks to Theme Park Insider reader Tim W
for this week's question, which I've been holding in reserve for ages now. But with the Disneyland Resort this week unveiling the newest version of its two night-time shows
, it's finally the perfect time to ask this question.
Which of Disney's current night-time shows do you think is the best? We're including shows from seven of Disney's parks around the world. (Fantasmic does double duty, with the original version at Disneyland and a second at Disney's Hollywood Studios in Florida.)
There's no criteria here upon which to judge, just your impression and decision on which show you most enjoy watching.
But do tell us in the comments why you picked the show you did. And have a great weekend!
With the new Fantasmic in DL can you really consider them to still be the same?
Fantasmic at Disneyland is using the same soundtrack as it has in past years, and the same story, albeit running the "no dragon" option since Maleficient is not operating. There's no "new" version of the show; just the promise of a better dragon animatronic in the future.
I've heard great things about Illuminations and Spectromagic, but haven't seen them, and on-line versions don't do justice to any show.
Fantasmic at both parks is great! but props go to Disnylands. Enjoy the closeness of it and the use of the Rivers of AMerica for it ..were at WDW its a staged production..and your so far back from it..and the Dragon at Disnylands is far better as it climbs over the Mt. a real show stopper.
Illuminations is breathtaking and, in my opinion, the best fireworks show ever made by Disney. It got my vote, but Fantasmic is good too!
I won't be voting as I have only ever seen Spectromagic and Illuminations and last saw Spectromagic in about 1996. I do think that Illuminations is a fantastic show and its setting helps create some great effects. The sights and sounds are just amazing.
I'd add that "BraviSEAmo" at Tokyo Disney Seas is outstanding (but I hate the name). Though I don't speak Japanese, it's fireworks, fountains and flames telling... "the romantic story of a 'Spirit of Water' and a 'Spirit of Fire' as they meet on the waters of Mediterranean Harbor." http://www.tokyodisneyresort.co.jp/tds/english/7port/harbor/show_bravi.html
I like Illuminations best because of it's sound track. I have it on my I Pod and listen to it whenever I need a Disney fix.The best used to Tapestry of Nations. The puppets were amazing, and the sound track was the best. I listen to that too when I need a fix.
Thanks for submitting this Mr. Niles. I havent thought of any polls in a while though!
