Fantasmic! or Star Wars Galactic Spectacular?

November 1, 2016, 4:13 AM

I haven't seen either and they are both playing next week when I'm going to DHS. I love Star Wars but I've heard Fantasmic! is a classic. Which should I see?

Yes, fantasmic is a classic but it hasn't changed since it opened at hollywood studios, however if you haven't seen any of the other versions at the other parks, I would recommend seeing it.
However Star Wars a galactic spectacular is amazing with the projection and other effects.
It all comes down to whether you like Star Wars or disney classics more.
Also the Star Wars show has a lot better fireworks than fantasmic does.
Personally I would chose Star Wars galactic spectacular, but just make sure you get a good view near the Chinese theatre.

If you have any chance of seeing Fantasmic at Disneyland after it reopens I'd suggest seeing the Star Wars show. Both versions of Fantasmic are great, but I think the Disneyland version nudges ahead of the one in Florida on several fronts. If all else fails, flip a coin and regret nothing!

I would agree with Rob...IF DLR's Fantasmic hasn't been downgraded by the time it reopens.
