Both shows are great to see, honeslty I would have to flip a coin to deside. I cant believe these people saying the shows are over rated -_-. They are both amazing to see especially if it's your FIRST time watching the show, not your hundreth time like most of the Disney freaks.
You know, it's funny. I think we die-hard fans have an affinity to F! that others do not. I had the good fortune of having nine out of town visitors, most with and families, over the last six months - a total of 29 people. All wanted to go to DL / DCA. (Fortunately, I have an AP.)
I made sure all went to both F! and WOC, since we went for two or three days each time.
Not one preferred F!, and that is not an exaggeration. A few were actually kind of like "Fantasmic? Meh. WOC!!!!! WOW!!!!!" I was actually felt a bit defensive about it.
But there it is.
I think we love F! because, as someone else said, it's our classic. But I have to admit, WOC has more bells and whistles from the tech standpoint.
Having already seen Fatasmic! a million times, I personally would choose WOC. If I was suggesting to someone who had never seen either, I would say WOC. Just because it seems to impress the "regular"(non Disney freak) guests more easily than Fantasmic! does.
I love Fantasmic for the 'Wow factor". I love World of Color for the emotional/sentimental aspect of it. World of Color certainly does bring back childhood memories. I got teary eyed the first time I saw it
