This is what I was most excited for coming to DisneySea. Both Fantasmic's in the US are great shows and I expected even more of a spectacle in Tokyo. On youtube it looks amazing. In real life, it's interesting. Some of the effects are really well done, but overall it felt scattered as a show and almost lacking something. I was left hoping that we had a "modified version of the show" because it looked like it might rain..but I don't think so. The centerpiece hat looked like a sports arena jumbotron with noticeable pixels (which i was somewhat okay with) but the pyro swirling around it was amazing. Though sometimes there would be a big musical hit and just one quiet little firework from the top of the hat, which looked funny to me. The circular lagoon reminded me of Epcot in a good way, but the barges with the characters seemed small and almost awkward. The dragon here is pretty epic and a really cool visual coming through the mirror. So lots of pros and cons. Overall, I can't describe why I was almost unhappy with the show, but I just felt like the versions stateside are more explosive and have a bigger "wow" factor. Still worth seeing, of course. Mickey's LED suit is pretty great. - Michael Weissman

I saw it on youtube and it was amazing! - Brett Angwin
