The mama of all Disneyland shows is a don't-miss. Performed after dark on the River of the Americas, Fantasmic! weaves a tale of Mickey vs. the Wicked Queen from Snow White, told with all forms of special effects and wizardry. The best parts include Tinkerbell projected on a cascade of water and a thrilling duel between Peter Pan and Captain Hook aboard the Sailing Ship Columbia. The grand finale, featuring just about every prince and princess ever drawn, leaves kids wide-eyed.
Babies: With fireworks explosions, the show is quite loud and better for older kids.
Toddlers & Pre-K: Fantasmic! is attended by a sea of people. Without prime seats, young children will have a difficult time seeing anything.
Pre-Teens & Teens: Even jaded, too-cool teens will love it -- even if they don't cop to it later.
- Call ahead. Times change seasonally, and shows can be cancelled due to weather. Check for information on the way in.
- Location, location, location. Watch the show from wherever you can clearly see Tom Sawyer Island. Good locations include the grass in front of Cafe Orleans and on the bridge in front of the >Pirates of the Caribbean® Attraction.
- Early birds are special. Plan to arrive early as people start saving their spots hours ahead of time.
- Pull up a chair. For a splurge, buy reserved seats ($59 for adults, $49 for children). They come with dessert, and can be purchased as much as 30 days ahead. Call 714-781-4400.
