 Best Post of the Day 5-13-14
Good Morning! This day in Disney history, May 13th, 1992. Disneyland's Fantasmic! - is officially dedicated in a 22-minute presentation in Frontierland. Making today it's 22nd Anniversary!

To watch a advertisement  from 1992 and scenes from the opening ceremony: http://is.gd/iW9SUr


Shaun Slater wrote an interesting article for Disney parks blog in 2012. He shared his conversation with Barnette Ricci, Vice President/Show Director of Special Events for the Walt Disney Studios, who 22 years ago was senior show director for Disneyland park. She shared some of her memories of creating Fantasmic! To read: http://is.gd/rBew5k

A description of the show taken directly from disneyland.disney.go.com:

“Power of Imagination
Stunning effects erupt against the night sky while Disney Characters join the reverie—as projections on water and in live performances.
Join the Reverie 
While Mickey conducts a breathtaking water show on the Rivers of America, his active imagination begins to grow.
Using his conductor's wand, he guides whimsical scenes from Fantasia across enormous screens of water—while brilliant sparks burst overhead.
Pink elephants, massive puppets, princesses and more surprisingly appear on and around Pirate's Lair on Tom Sawyer Island.

Who Will Win?

When the Evil Queen calls for her Magic Mirror, Mickey's dream takes a dark turn. The forces of evil come out of the shadows as she invokes some of Disney's most dastardly villains—including an impressive, 45-foot, fire breathing beastly dragon!

Will Mickey triumph over this terrifying beast from the depths of his nightmare?
Technical Wonderment 
Be amazed by Mickey’s dream as it builds with high-resolution digital film sequences, music, pyrotechnics, fiber optics, lasers, video projected on water and plenty of special effects.”

😭😭😅👏 thank you for doing a Fantasmic history post Duchess! My all time favorite disney show. I still remember all the little changes they've made over the years, it always holds a special memory and I will always watch 100 times in a row if I could. I have so many favorite parts. If you watched it with me, you'd laugh at how many times I would lean over and say "oh this is my favorite part" 😂 thanks duchess! - mini_MINNIE  1086.0 #158 9:03AM
😂😂 me too! - PrincessDuckie  859.9 #203 9:14AM

You're so stinkin cute! I hope I get to watch the show with you someday!  - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 3:50PM
🎉🎉🎉 So many great memories of Fantasmic!  The first few summers of Fantasmic we took quite a few groups to DL just to see this amazing show. I would camp out starting at like 3 pm lol with my blanket and a book to save space. I don't know why I brought a book I always ended up people watching!  I loved sharing the show with our nieces, nephews (Teen Mickey!) , goddaughters and little friends. Every show I had a twinge of sadness that we would never have kids to share the show with. But I did love watching the show with kids and first timers. It was the best feeling ever. Flash forward a few years when our first miracle came along. I think I watched her watch the show the whole time. Crying of course. So grateful we had a daughter to share the magic with. Flash forward about eight years later when Lil One came along. She is obsessed with Fantasmic just like I am!  We have watched it twice in rain because we could!  Who cares about getting wet. 😂😂😂 any who thanks for the memories Duchess! - PrincessDuckie  859.9 #203 9:14AM
Awe! Those are great memories!  - mini_MINNIE  1086.0 #158 9:18AM
Awe! So sweet! I did the same thing the first time my eldest watched. Disneyland through a child's eyes never gets old! 😊 Thanks for sharing that with us!  - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 3:53PM
Time for my annual "Hey look, it's a picture of Evil Incarnate, and he standing next to Maleficent..." - NotSoDapperDan  323.9 #729 9:24AM
You always make me laugh, what did you call him last year? A "clown shoe"?  - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 3:53PM
Lol, he goes by many names... - NotSoDapperDan  323.9 #729 5:46PM
I love fantasmic! It is the best show ever that never gets old. It will always have special meaning and memories for me! Like watching it with my parents as a little girl at the end of a long day at the parks. To watching it from the dream suite for my birthday last year with  MW friends! 💜💚💜💚 - Miss_E_Mouse  1433.5 #106 8:59AM
Such special memories! I just love reading how Disney touches people in so many different ways! Thanks so much for sharing that! Miss you! Feel like it's been ages since I've seen you!  - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 5:32PM
Fantasmic is my favorite!! Would choose it over WOC any day! 😊 Thank you for posting!  - GrimGrinningAmanda  660.5 #285 9:12AM
AGREED! Thank YOU! - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 10:25PM
Definitely the best show ever - - Grindcore  538.3 #364 9:19AM
Do you have a favorite part?  - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 4:39PM
There are so many! A few parts come to mind: 1. The monkeys!  2. The goldfish  3.  The transition from Hook dangling from the boat to the Princess segment 4. The moment that Murphy emerges. - Grindcore  538.3 #364 9:12PM
We love it so much. We are actually doing the preferred seating twice this weekend! - garrlusdland  67.6 #4082 9:37AM
woohoo! How fun! - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 10:27PM
Great job! I personally didn't see the show in its entirety until about 3 years ago when I first got an AP. Now working in the area of the Rivers of America, I get to see/hear the show about 2-5 times a week (after doing the math, that's about 300-400 shows), but it never gets old. I think it has to do something with the live action characters and the music that underscores the entire show.  - BaseballMickey_CM  7187.8 #8 10:25AM
Thanks Buddy! So blessed to get to be at the park as often as you are! I agree! It's quite the show! - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 10:28PM
😍😍😍This is my very favorite nighttime thing to do at Disneyland. We can't take a trip without seeing fantasmic. My favorite parts are the  princess and the monkeys. Thank you so much for all these great posts. - joyful_belle131  59.2 #4292 10:34AM
Love the monkeys! That's my favorite part too! Thank YOU!  - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 6:08AM

You are SO not old! You were probably just a baby when those came out. 😉😘 thanks doll!  - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 6:09AM
I've only seen Fantasmic a few times. I tear up everytime cause the actual movie- Fantasia was my late fathers favorite movie of all time. - Superspacemountainfan  82.9 #3773 10:41AM
Awe how sweet! Well I highly recommend making time to watch it again. It really is a special show. 😊😘 - Duchess_SMK  6162.7 #16 6:10AM

Wow! Such a great show and I have only seen it twice! The last time was last November, I believe. I  don't recall Flotsam & Jetsam in it(thanks so much for that) it was a great show and it made me tear up. To see so many characters that we have enjoyed in films and  elements of many movies,  from decades, was incredible to see come to life! Thanks!!  Can't wait to see you on Friday😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  5639.7 #17 4:44PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of August 24, 2015
Summer is over, according to the Disneyland Resort calendar. Hours have been reduced for the first time since summer began (Disneyland & DCA closes at 10pm M-TH). Most Orange County schools are back in session today, which usually points to smaller crowds. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the low 60s (approx 60% capacity) -- it even dipped into the 50s on some days. This data points to lower crowds this week. If you've been waiting for the summer madness to end, this might be your week to hit the Parks! To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait App for Crowd Index averages and wait times. Have a great week! - Admin Aug 24, 2015 11:03AM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  495.8 #399 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7161 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  399.8 #532 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  162.2 #2467 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.8 #1421 5:04PM
summer surely has been very busy!  - MarshaMouse  4816.5 #22 12:18AM
I was there this week, Tues, Wed.,Thur. Very hot and muggy. Long lines except single rider lines were great. Because we had 3 days we didn't mind waiting in line. It's so fun to people watch while you wait. We had a great time. Can't wait until next time to go back. - Popcorn  9.4 #10618 9:33AM
