I mainly went through the trouble to record this for some friends that missed it. When there we were at the French Market and couldn't see though show.
Bonus, don't know if this is the park or someone having fun. In the foreground are a bundle of those glowing balloons. Don't know how much they cost, but 3 are released through the show, then all are let go at the end.
First few seconds are zoomed in, then I zoom out for mostly a full view with the castle centered.
For those going to see it soon, I liked viewing it from Main Street. It was never too crowded during my 5 days on August 23rd. This was the 26th I think. Plenty of room around me even at the last second and stood. Plus, I love the glowing confetti at the end there, not sure if they do it anywhere else at the park.
After, I rushed down to Fantasmic seating area and got a nice sitting spot near dead center, right of main control tower, 4 people from the water. Then about 40 minutes until start. Fun way to finish the night with amazing fireworks centered around the castle, then Fantasmic.

Again, I tried to keep the camera still with the castle center, and zoomed out enough to see everything, but not too far. Taken with my Canon digital camera.
