If you plan on being at the Hollywood Studios until closing, don’t miss seeing Fantasmic! Fantasmic at Hollywood Studios is a live theatrical performance where Mickey Mouse takes on the Evil Queen in a classic battle of good versus evil! It is performed nightly at Hollywood Hills Theater and is a great way to end the day.
Fantasmic at Hollywood Studios
When Fantasmic begins, we see Mickey Mouse as the Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
Soon, we are taken on a journey into Mickey’s imagination witnessing his different dream sequences.
At this point in the show, things are bright and happy with some of your favorite Disney characters making appearances with clips from animated films such as:
- Frozen 2
- Beauty and the Beast
- The Little Mermaid
- The Lion King
You will also get to see many of the Disney princesses dancing with their princes on floats that glide across the water.
As the dreams progress, they become darker and Mickey is ultimately challenged by the Evil Queen and ends up battling with the Queen from Sleeping Beauty who appears as a dragon.
Will Kids get Scared at Fantasmic?
There are some scary elements in Fantasmic! If you have little ones who might get spooked by fire, battle scenes, dark undertones, you might want to prep them ahead of time.
Overall, however, the show is great and kids above six should have no problem enjoying the storyline since Mickey is victorious over the villains.
At the end of Fantasmic, Mickey will show up driving Steamboat Willie featuring many Disney characters.
This is an excellent opportunity to see the less common characters at Disney World.
