FANTASMIC: - It begins its 25-minute burlesque with a dreaming
Mickey Mouse on a darkened island.
Mickey acts as a conductor as music fills the air and the waters
adjacent the island begin to dance.
Suddenly, screens of water come out and a multitude of images are
displayed upon them: Sorcerer Mickey in his famous "Sorcerer's Apprentice"
scene from Fantasia, Simba and Nala romping from the Lion King, and the
undersea creatures from The Little Mermaid.
Monstro the whale pursues the mood shifts when a frantic Jiminy Cricket becomes

Cruella de Vil, Scar, Frollo, Jafar, Maleficent and Hades each make an

Finally, a festive atmosphere prevails amid a spell of fireworks. Beloved Disney
characters glide past the audience aboard the Steamboat Willie River Boat, as
Fantasmic Concludes with a victorious Mickey rejoicing at his victory over
