We’re Willing to Bet You’ve Heard of Fantasmic!

For anyone who doesn’t know, Fantasmic! is one of Disney’s most fan-favorite, beloved nighttime spectaculars around.

From pyrotechnics to water fountains (sometimes called ‚Äúdancing water‚ÄĚ) to projections to live-action stunts, this nighttime show has it all! The fire effects and special effects alike are thrilling, the music is incredibly moving, and, best of it all, this show stars Mickey Mouse himself!

The recurring theme of Fantasmic! is the power of a dream! After all, Walt Disney himself said, ‚ÄúIf you can dream it, you can do it,‚ÄĚ and Fantasmic! proves it.

Throughout the show, Mickey Mouse defeats various Disney villains as they attempt to turn his dream into a nightmare. It goes without saying, but we’ll say it anyways: this nighttime spectacular is beloved for its awe-inspiring visuals and the appearance of multiple beloved characters.

In this video, we can see that Mickey is busy defeating the Disney villains as projections and other special effects go off without a hitch around him.

But in this video, Mickey’s head comes off for a few moments, exposing the performer underneath! This is a huge no-no for Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resort’s commitment to preserving the illusion!

When and Where Guests Can Find Fantasmic!

In Walt Disney World, guests can find Fantasmic! in Hollywood Studios, along Sunset Boulevard. Shows are usually held at 9:30 p.m., but are subject to change at any time due to the fickle Florida weather.
