While Fantasmic Mickey Mouse is abruptly absorbed into the Magic Mirror, his lovely dream turns into a frightening one. The Evil Queen from Snow White summons up many of Disney's meanest villains, such as Maleficent and a 45-foot Fantasmic dragon. Mickey must do all he can to beat the foes!

Showing extremely talented live performers, favorite Disney characters, advanced projections, and breathtaking pyrotechnics, this attraction is sure to impress. If you're wondering, "How long is Fantasmic Disneyland?", it lasts about 15 minutes.

Note: Due to some scary parts of the show, children under 14 years old must be accompanied by a guest 18 years old or older.

Best Viewing Locations

The Fantasmic! show is located along the Rivers of America and New Orleans Square. The viewing location won't have proper seating for the show.

The best place to watch Fantasmic Disneyland 2023 is right in front of the stage along the Rivers of America, so come early to save a place. The designated standby viewing is first come first served, which is why we recommend arriving hours before the actual showing of Fantasmic.
