Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Disneyland
Playing at Disney's Hollywood Studios, with the original at California's Disneyland, Fantasmic! draws packed houses almost every night. That popularity's been shown in tournament results to date, with Fantasmic! winning each round with a minimum of 78% of the vote.

Unlike many other Disney theme park shows, Festival of the Lion King makes no attempt to retell the story of the Lion King (Disney had a rather successful Broadway show which did that just fine, thank you.) Instead, Animal Kingdom's Festival celebrates the characters and songs from the hit animated movie with this musical review in the round.
