Walt Disney World's edition of Fantasmic! opened in October 1998, six-and-a-half years after it debuted at Disneyland. It continues to be extremely popular and long lines to get into the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater are most often the case. The show is a journey through Mickey Mouse's imagination and showcases various Disney animated movies, and takes place on an island surrounded by a 1.9-million-gallon moat. The show is truly multimedia using film projected onto water-mist screens, fireworks, live characters on barges and other suprises. While most people prefer the version of the show at Disneyland, it is certainly more comfortable to sit in the amphitheater seats here in Florida than it is to camp out on the walkways in California. Good sightlines are to be had from most seats. There is also a large standing-room area, but viewing there may be difficult if there are tall people in front of you.
