I just saw Fantasmic again last night. I had also seen it
the first month it opened at the Studios. What a difference!
I don't know if my mind is playing tricks on me or if they
have improved the show, but Wow! I don't remember that many
special effects during the first viewing. For example, I
don't recall Mickey disappearing from the top of the mountain
and then reappearing at the bottom near the end of the show.
The first time I viewed the show, I rated it a 7 out of 10.
Last night's show was a 10! One definite change (that is not
my imagination) is that they no longer make guests of the
last show leave through the backstage area past dumpsters and
the backs of buildings. This alone was an improvement.
In other news, make sure you get down to Epcot to see Blast!
It is a fantastic show. Don't miss it!
