finding nemo is so cute! its a run through of the movie basically...my daughter was 2 when she first saw this and it was a favorite....BUT...fantasmic is just that...fantasmic! ;) it gives such a happy feeling everytime i watch it (it always feels like the first time)

Is this the biggest wipeout of the tournament so far? Nemo is a good show, but it never had a chance against the greatness of Fantasmic!

finding nemo has pretty much destroyed all the opponents on the road to the semi's, so this just shows how high people regard fantasmic.

There is no contest on this one. Nemo is a fine play, though the music leaves a little to be wanted. Ultimately, it can't hold a candle to the spectacle that is Fantasmic, even if we are considering Florida's version.

Fantasmic takes this one easily.

I cannot see how anyone would dislike Fantasmic. Even my cynical friends who have little regard for the Disney magic love this show.

I went with Nemo for the live singing, but either are fine by me!

If we're talking about Fantasmic! at Disneyland and not Pocahontasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios, then yeah it gets my vote. Nemo is far more entertaining than the 10 minutes of bubbles that float up the water screens... *snore*

Well here is one bracket that surely hasnt failed! Fantasmic! and Festival of the Lion King are surely the best shows i have yet to see at any theme park! They have been my favorites for years and years to come now because they are just amazing! However, Go Fantasmic!!!!
