“Great show”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

The Fantasmic show was more than I expected. I had seen it a few years ago and they have upgraded some of the features. The overall effects were great.
Plan on having dinner at one of the restaurants closest to the show area so you can avoid having to stand around waiting for the show to start.
The fireworks started right after the show so we really had a problem trying to get through the crowd and leave the park.
Overall the show is great for kids 5-10. Younger than that they probably wouldn't know what is going on and older kids would rather be riding the rides.

“Disneyland's best show”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2013

Have seen this over and over with family. You can sit on the riverbelle terrace or get there ahead of the show and put a blanket down on the cement to reserve a spot for your family to sit.Get there early and bring over a clam chowder in a bread bowl to enjoy, from nearby shop. Warm up jazz boats, then Mickey Mouse show with water effects, music, dancing, fire, full-sized dragon, and fireworks finale.

“Must See”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

Second time viewing and still amazing. Much better than "world of color" at California Adventure. Plan your day around seeing this one, as it will be one of the highlights of the trip. Find a resturant and get reservations to eat dinner and watch at the same time if you have the money. If not, take a blanket and park somone in the viewing area 1-2hours ahead of time while the rest of you go and enjoy some rides.
You can also watch the firewords over the castle from here which are usually a few minutes after Fantasmic gets over.
We chose to get to the park early and hit it hard, then retreat to our condo for the late afternoon, then return for the show later.
Also, the lines for the rids are short just after the show gets over, we got onto Indiana Jones with a 10 minute wait...better than our fastpass earlier the same day!

“Technical marvel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2013

This is the best show at Disney. Partly because the technical aspects are amazing, but also because of the storyline. Worlds of Color doesn't have that. The fight between good and evil, the importance of imagination, and of course all the water!

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 30, 2013

It is a spectacular sight to behold. Fantasmic is truly wondrous. Beware the crowds though. Come early and find good seats. If you go to the later show, it's less crowded, but it's colder.
