    Fantasmic! Post Refurb...

    So...while passing through NOS on Saturday after riding Indy, Fantasmic! was running and it was during Maleficent's scene where she rises up and transforms into her dragon form.

    Here's where I'm bummed...there was no dragon animatronic (that night at least...)

    EDIT: Found this on YT...I guess it was just down for maintenance?

    Sometimes the Fantasmic! dragon gets stage fright and Malificent has to substitute,

    Seems legit

    It was just weird to see her towering so high and it looked like she was going to lose her balance at some point if she didn't stop flailing. Haha

    Definitely want to sit through a showing sometime...I was considering the dining option to avoid having to stake out a spot and wait but we shall see.

    I have seen YouTube versions of both. Sometimes when the dragon is down for maintenance they will substitute it with Maleficent.
    The other substitution they do when the Mark Twain is down is having the characters on the island rather than on the boat.
    Please... put Guardians of the Galaxy in Tomorrowland.

    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    Mark Twain is supposed to be back on 28 March. Yay!

    I'm looking forward to seeing "unusually tall Malificent" sometime.

    Me: "Yes. It happened after a recent trip to Neverland."
    Peter Pan: "Well, you can dunk your head in the pond behind us, if you want."

    Neverland since 1996.

    When the dragon is not working after Maleficent is simply raised up 80 feet as usual but she stays up and the fight is between her and Mickey instead of Mickey and The Dragon. The Dragon will only be on the Mist Screens. She is lowered when Mickey snuffs the fire in the lagoon. Not as spectacular when the Dragon get a case of Stage Fright and refuses to come out of her cage.

    Isn't that what they did when they were switching over to Murph from the original dragon?
