Disney's Hollywood Studios - Fantasmic!


Hollywood Studios Rides and Attractions


Fantasmic!

Opened: October 15, 1998
Attraction length: 26 minutes

Overview/History:


Fantasmic! is not being presented right now, but will return in 2022.


Fantasmic! takes place in the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater located near "The Twilight Zone Tower of Terror" and "Beauty and the Beast-Live On Stage." Watch Sorcerer Mickey battle Disney Villains in this sensational laser and light show.

The amphitheater opens 90 minutes before the show begins. You can bring in outside food or purchase snacks inside. If you want to take advantage of priority seating and skip the usual long wait to get into this show, book the Fantasmic Dining Package

There are long rows of metal benches that are banked for easy viewing. The theater is designed after the famous Hollywood Bowl and can accommodate 11,000 guests. While it's tempting to run down to the front, the "water screens" used in a lot of the sequences often produces a light mist that could head right in your direction.

Fantasmic! originated in Disneyland. While parts of the show are similar, there are differences. (It's rare for those who have seen both to prefer the Disney World version.)

Tip: It's rare that a performance doesn't have a parent scrambling out with their terrified child. The Disney Villains can be pretty scary, especially when it's dark and they're larger than life. If your little one is sensitive, think twice about going until they're older and can better understand what's going on.

The finale is a lot of fun. An 80-foot replica of the ship from "Steamboat Willie" features 26 Disney characters waving and singing as they go by.

Fastpass: Yes

Handicapped Accessibility: Guests may remain in their wheelchairs/ECVs for this attraction.

Fun facts:
- The moat surrounding the show contains approximately 1.9 million gallons of water.
- The mountain stands approximately 57.5 feet above the water.
- The fire-breathing dragon rises 50 feet into the air and has a wing span of 50 feet.
