Fantasmic! combines live performers with stunning special effects, colorful pyrotechnic explosions, animation and dancing waters synchronized to the melodies of timeless Disney classics. Join a panel of professionals from Disney Live Entertainment as they discuss the exciting creative and technological updates implemented with the re-opening of “Fantasmic!” After hearing from the team, you’ll be ushered to the amphitheater to watch the fan-favorite nighttime spectacular in action. “It was extremely exciting to take advantage of technological enhancements that didn’t originally exist when the show opened in 1998,” says Katrina Mena Rick, broadcast creative producer for Disney Live Entertainment. “So, we [worked] with other disciplines such as special effects, lighting, lasers and music to ensure that our visual content was as exactly seamless and as beautiful as it could be.”
