My Number One Daughter, Amber, took a trip to Disney’s Hollywood Studios with her friends from school.  They decided they wanted to write a blog post about their trip.  Amber’s friend, Bryana, is pleased to provide her first professional blog post!–LanceAround

Fantasmic! is a spectacular show with tons of your favorite Disney characters. The show is somewhat based on PhilharMagic, a 3-D Disney attraction in Magic Kingdom. Mickey, who is first shown as a wizard and starts the show, is making all the magic happen.

There are different scenes from Disney movies that come to life right before your eyes. Just to name a few there is Sleeping Beauty, Beauty and the Beast, Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid, and more! There are fire works during the show that are phenomenal!

It’s a great family show and if you haven’t seen it I highly recommend that you do. This is one of the best live shows Disney has to offer!

Notes From LanceAround

Bryana is a great student and a good friend to Amber.  While it’s fun to read about Fantasmic from the eyes of a Middle School student, it also highlights the difficulty in trying to describe a show as varied and spectacular as Fantasmic.  How can you capture a show that includes a large lake featuring actors dancing on showboats and traveling in canoes; A large mountain that creates a backdrop for colorful characters of large flowers, giant neon snakes, battles on ladders and ropes, and a wicked witch that grows many stories before your very eyes.  Throw in a huge water spray that creates the screen which displays the animated movies, a lake of fire, multiple pyrotechnics, and a Mickey Mouse that disappears from the base of the mountain and reappears instantaneously on the summit and you begin to get the idea! (Click on link for videos and photos of Fantasmic on Disney’s website.)  When I asked my Disney Representative, “Just how many Mickey Mouse’s are there?” he gives an impish smile before giving the standard Disney reply, “Just one…” and before I can even ask, “how…,” he retorts, “It’s MAGIC!”
