Fantasmic!
Location: Frontierland, along the rivers of America all the way to Critter Country
Year Opened: 1992
Crowds: Big. Often real big. If you want to be front and center, be prepared to wait at least 2 hours in advance.
Description: Fantasmic is pretty hard to describe. It's a live show with pyrotechnics, lasers, music, Disne characters, and a great story. I still leave each show in awe.
Fun Tip: To get good seats, try the second show. Wait until the first show ends and clears out, then make your move. Also, if you get there real cl ose to showtime, try standing behind the light towers. When they raise up, you'll have a pretty good view.

Jeff's Review: hathathathathat
Worth the price of admission alone.


Above: The finale, minus the Mark Twain, May 1999.


Above Left: Maleficient works her magic, lighting the rivers on fire. (This shot was reduced in size, but is still nice)

Above Right: A very crisp shot of the finale: the river is on fire, and fireworks are blowing up all over the place.

Left: The Mark Twain comes around in the finale. Reduced in size for better quality.

 

Above: Two reasons why digital cameras and Fantasmic don't mix.


Above: This one' s not as bad. Here the dragon has lit the river afire!
