Written by Andrew Swanson
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.
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. - James Rao
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. - Rob McCullough
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. - Manny Barron
This is the best thing that Disneyland has to offer. Period. - Mark Kausch
Exceptional and better than the show in Orlando! Genuine Disney magic. - Mark Moore
