    I wish there was an option to choose Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea, as I like them equally for what they are. However, if I had to choose one I would choose the one more ingrained in my memory, the Disneyland one!

    Re: Best Fantasmic ever?

    TDS one for me. There are minor issues which I attribute to the growing pains (Mickey in the background showing up due to firework's glare, video not showing on "back"(front to us), etc.) which I'm ignoring. There's also a bit of a nit about the roughness of the hat (should be able to become a true cone)

    Tough choice as the projections are really clear (obvious WoC tech), but Murphy is more convincing and the TSI is still an awesome backdrop (which I sorely miss here).

    Everyone, please view the videos first before voting..

    Love the new show, but I still love the version at WDW the best.

    Re: Best Fantasmic ever?

    Visual effects at TDS = cool

    Big giant boat with all the characters on it = way cool

    Japanese style dragon = way cool

    Murphy the Dragon = the coolest!

    Peter Pan battle = we have a winner in disneyland. Cant wait to see TDS version.

    While the scale and effects at TDS are amazing, to me it just doesn't have the same magic the original at DL has. I'm really not a fan of the "enhancements" they made to the Fantasmic soundtrack. WDW's is still pretty much awful by comparison to both, but DL has the definite edge!

    I have to say that I hate the TDS version. Some really cool tech but not a worthy successor to braviSEAmo and clearly the worst incarnation of fantasmic yet.

    Re: Best Fantasmic ever?

    Disneyland still has the best soundtrack, the best setting/atmosphere, the best scenes (pirate ship, mark twain, etc), the best hidden factor (show is hidden during the day) and the best dragon.

    While I love the Magic Mirror concept in TDS, a lot of the show falls flat and out-of-place for me. Many scenes are choppy and don't flow together at all. There's also a lack of live performers through out the show and too much is relied on the center LED screens.

    Disneyland still holds the crown!

    PS: I HATE those blow-up characters in the jungle scene. This is 2011, not 1990.

    Re: Best Fantasmic ever?

    I consider them all equal. Each version is unique enough to stand out on its own. And in a way I'm kind of happy to see that the Tokyo version hasn't done the same thing it did with Dreamlights by making it too impressive that the other versions look poor in comparrison. Like Dreamlights did to every other Electrical Parade in existance at another Disney Park.

    Both Fantasmic's in the States have some very impressive scenes that have failed to make it into the DisneySea version. But at the same time the Tokyo version uses so many new and impressive effects that I just can't place it below the other two versions either. DisneySea's Fantasmic has achieved its goal. Which was not to upstage the US versions. But to provide a new night time extravaganza to replace BraviSEAmo that would keep people in the parks longer after night fall. And I believe Steve Davison and his team have managed to accomplish this task. I really can't wait to check this version out in November

    I don't think it would be fair for me to judge until I see it in person. The full experience of a show can not be acheived by watching a video on a PC monitor.

    If the tables were turned and most people could only see DL's F! on video, I wonder what the opinion of the DL F! would be?

    I'm still liking DL's presentation a lot better. Overall the DL version's intimacy of the setting, the mix of media and the music segways deliver a nicer show.

    While I myself am only comparing video to video, as I have seen neither show live, I think this is a truly "fantasmic" point to make!

    Re: Best Fantasmic ever?

    Well, I've only ever seen Orlando's Fantasmic, so boo hoo me. But there are aspects of each that I love. The water wall finale, snake, and mysterious dragon in Orlando, the fully fleshed out Murphy and entire middle section in DL (Peter Pan!), and the re-thought Genie, Villain Segment, and pyro finale in Tokyo. Honestly, I need to see the other two before I can make a final decision, buuut... I like them all!
