A Live Spectacular on the Rivers of America. With the help of Mickey Mouse's Incredible Imagination you come face to face with familiar faces of the good and evil. From the colored water fountains to the waterscreens that project images from various disney's films, combined with the technological advances of fireworks, and burning water. This show is a spectacular. With the help of Mickey's incredible imagination, you can see Pinnochio with Can Can girls, Elephants on Parade, Monstro, Kaaa from the Jungle Book, and a spectacular Pirate Ship battle with Peter Pan and Captain Hook. But the evil is nearing, but will the powers of Mickey's incredible imagination be strong enough and bright enough to with stand the evil forces that invade his dreams, you have to see the show to find out.

6/2015 - I can't get enough of Fantasmic at Disneyland! It puts the WDW version to shame.
Enrique Jimenez
Only thing this show is missing is a good sitting area.
Mark Kausch
This is the best thing that Disneyland has to offer. Period.
Joseph Smith
The original is the best version of this show: the setting on the rivers of America is amazing, I get goosebumps and startled every time the Pirate ship loudly appears out of the darkness, the balance of video footage to live action is great (especially versus the when will it end bubble sequence in Orlando), and the "Imagination" theme music ends the show on an upbeat, optimistic and very-Disney high note. It's also great this show is continually updated with new technology and effects.

this show is great, but after visit Fantasmic at disney hollywood studios and Fantasmic at Disneyland, I could say that Fantasmic is better at disneyland, but one thing is that is a mess to find a place to see, at disney hollywood studios there ir a stage with a lot of seats , such as world of Color both should have their own seats
James Rao
Disneyland's version of Fantasmic is better in every way (except seating) than the version in Orlando. I was especially impressed at how the Sailing Ship Columbia was used during the Peter Pan sequence, and with Murphy the Dragon, whose fire breathing antics were amazing. My whole family agreed the show was terrific. Well worth the discomfort of sitting on the damp, hard, ground.
Rob McCullough
It is amazing. The inclusion of the Columbia and the Mark Twain really set this show on a higher level. Well worth the agony of standing in the crush of the crowd.
Manny Barron
This legendary Disney show still has its magic after twenty years. The show has plenty action, story, music, characters, and effects. This show really is a must see. If you can, attend the second showing of Fantasmic as it has less people and your viewing spot will be better.
