Hollywood Studios, for us, is rarely on our radar. While I don’t go to Animal Kingdom often enough and feel bad, Hollywood Studios is a place we kinda only go when friends are in town. I’m genuinely excited for the rumored changes coming to this park and I’m looking forward to watching it grow the next decade. :)
We recently found ourselves in a cycle of only going to the same parks, doing the same things, so I thought it’d be fun to book Fastpasses for shows we haven’t seen in years. I don’t think we’d seen Fantasmic in 5 years! Anyway, here are some favorites from a random Disney date night. <3
It’s tradition for me to watch Fantasmic from the far left seats when looking at the stage. Why? Because my favorite part is when all the characters run *in* the boat for fireworks fallout, poor Ariel is stuck on the boat, and Prince Eric covers her with a tarp. It’s the funniest, creepiest thing you’ve ever seen! I have so many questions about this. Why not put her on the front of the boat so no one can see? Or let the poor girl have her legs at the end of the show? Or put her on wheels so she can run for safety, too?! Does anyone know if this happens in Disneyland, too?
So glad to have my old friend back, even though she’s covered again by an ugly stage. :(
