The night show features more than 50 artists who perform live and in color, literally, packed with a soundtrack well known to Disney lovers and scenarios beyond incredible.

Initially, Fantasmic! emerged and was presented at the Disneyland park, California, in 1992.

Later, in 1998, it was the turn of Hollywood Studios to receive the attraction, although with some changes.

In that way, perhaps it can be said that Fantasmic! be an attraction that competes, on an equal footing, with the fireworks display of the Magic kingdom (the show Happily Ever After).

And one thing is certain and indisputable, after all: Disney knows how to make real shows, which leave everyone immersed in the created universe and always asking for more.

Fantasmic! at Hollywood Studios

At least 22 years in the park, the attraction happens, practically, every day. Always at night, which is the end of the park's schedule.

The duration of the show is approximately 30 minutes.

And, as stated above, it is to leave your eyes wide open and fixed on what is presented. There is no time to lose anything, because it is so impressive that you cannot even think to look away.

Basically, Mickey Mouse is the main character of the show. He is asleep and ends up dreaming that he is a sorcerer, who, in turn, manages to control the water and turn it into something magical.

In those first moments, Mickey is on top of something that resembles a mountain. You can see it well, in the distance, as the scene is almost 20 meters high.

The highlight, therefore, is on account of lighting and costumes.

As a villain, for example, Maleficent comes as a 40-foot dragon. Also appearing the Evil Queen, witch of Snow White, with the objective of going after Mickey and many other villains unite to capture the hero Mickey!

Other characters are also present at the attraction, these are very famous from some Disney classics, such as: Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Lion King, Pocahontas, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Towards the end of the presentation, however, all of them and Mickey come inside the Steamboat Willie, a boat that takes them on board for another incredible greeting to the public.

In addition to the villains, other changes are very noticeable, such as Mickey's costume change.

In all, there are five costumes, one more beautiful than the other, which reflect different moments in the story of the animated character.
