    Cool Fantasmic! Question!

    I read somewhere that there was at one time an Ursula float for Fantasmic! Is this true? Cue Pictures!

    Re: Fantasmic! Question!

    There did used to be during the villans all talking about their roles in stealin Mickey's dreams. It was very out of place since none of the other villans had a float and looked kinda weird. But we are talking about a 50 foot 1990's float, so the technology on it was probably not worth the expense of continuing it.

    Yup, it's true. It was way back when the show first started its run. I remember seeing her tenticals waving about in the water. If I'm not mistaken they took her out and replaced her with the crocodile in the Peter Pan scene. Let me know if I'm wrong MiceChatters!

    I also read that there was a problem with payment so when it broke, the person who made it refused to fix it!

    I always thought it was a cool float. I thought they took it out because it did not always work.

    She was performing for quite a few years. I don't remember exactly when she was taken out of service but it was at least 5 years ago.

    The crocodile has always been in the show.

    As I said before it was during the villans gathering point that Ursula came out, which isn't really that far off in timing from the croc.

    If I am not mistaken, thats a WDW photo. Doesn't WDW have a Ursula float? I think she was only in the Disneyland version a couple years.
    If you see a cute yellow lab puppy with a yellow cape, WAVE! It might be us! (Or it may be someone else that lurks here!) Thank you for asking before you pet! Next trip, Dec 22-Jan 3rd.

    from what i remember she was in the show but a CM who works the show told me that she literally blew up and disney didn't want to pay to fix it so they just gave her her own film portion just like the other villians. i reallly miss the ursual float!

    I loved the Ursula float! And I never knew why they took her out. And I still think that there's this akward pause where she should be!

    I beleive that she had both a film part and the float going on at the same time.

    Re: Fantasmic! Question!

    Yeah, we last saw her tied up to the shoreline docks near the repair area to the left of TSI some years back.

    We always cracked up when she made her appearance during the show.

    We miss her...
