    Fantasmic Evil Queen

    Ok, so this might be a dumb question, but ive been meaning to ask someone, is the evil queen and the witch during the fantasmic show the same person? i know it probably isnt, but i have a cousin who is a cm at disneyland and he says it is. Anyone know?

    In what respect? Along the story line, yes. Theatrically, I think different people play the two parts just because of the costume change. I could be wrong though, I don't know very much about Fantasmic!

    Re: Fantasmic Evil Queen

    Hmm... I know in the Snow White stage show they did in Fantasyland it was the same person and simply a quick change of the cape and partial face mask.

    But I think in the case of Fantasmic! it is two separate people and an elevator/trapdoor situation.

    Anyone with Fantasmic! experience have any more on this?

We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    It's not enought time to change costumes, therefore, it must be two differerent performers.

    It is 2 different performers. If you watch the show from the Haunted Mansion side of the Island, you can sometimes clearly see the switch if the smoke is not covering them up very well. The Queen ducks into the cauldron and the Witch jumps out at the same time.

    The witch's mask is really funny but 2 performers are correct.

    i never even realize the mouth moved, up untill i saw a commercial video on youtube they used to advertise fantasmic. usually i get sucky views when i see the show. speaking of moving mouths. i would love it if they did over at Disneyworld and brought the moving character heas to disneyland. anyone else agree?

    if the wind is blowing strong enough, the smoke around the cauldron won't stay put and you can clearly see them switch through the trap door! i love the hag's motions, it always makes me think of kabuki! and i agree that the queen's glittery cape is the bomb.

    Every time we see it, I demand silence when she appears. I keel telling my husband, when he retires, and we move to Orlando...I'm gonna play that part. Of course, I'll be 38 by then....but, it's far away...nobody will notice a few wrinkles. haha
