* Mickey Mouse's CrowningMomentOfAwesome is the climax of the ''Fantasmic!'' show at Disneyland, in which he defeats dragon-form Maleficent ''by imagining himself doing so'' (since the plot takes place in a dream sequence of his). The show as a whole, featuring pyrotechnics, stunts, and movie clips projected onto giant water fans, is a CrowningMomentOfAwesome for the Disney Imagineers.
* On that note, "Illuminations" is indisputably the [=CMOA=] for the Disney fireworks coordinators and practical effects crew. Dude. ''Inferno barge.'' Don't forget the barge that floats unnoticed during the first "act" in a hidden part of the lake, then drifts serenely to the center. It carries a globe that is actually a spherical [=LCD=] screen and it shows an array of [[TearJerker gorgeous images]] before splitting to reveal a twenty-first torch, representing the new century.

* ''[[Series/TheTwilightZone1959 The Twilight Zone]] [[Ride/TheTwilightZoneTowerOfTerror Tower of Terror]]''. The immersion, the storytelling, the theming, the build-up, the sense of dread, the chills and thrills and the absolute fun that comes with plummeting multiple times in an EvilElevator at a HellHotel into AnotherDimension. No wonder the ride is on countless "favorite-rides-of-all-time" lists.

* The Franchise/IndianaJones Adventure, in Tokyo Disneysea and Disneyland on the whole. Everything about our favourite fictional AdventureArchaeologist in one beautiful ride, with all the trimmings!
* '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oAg3pP-PYok THE HATBOX GHOST IS BACK]]'''. People cheered when the gates to the Disneyland Mansion opened and the line just to see him went all the way through Port Orleans! Not to mention, after all these years, they found a way for Ol' Hatbox to work...and it looks absolutely stunning.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d7FFFENv6i4 Happily Ever After]] fireworks show is a pure spectacle of epic action, legitimately moving moments, and gorgeous fireworks and projection.
** [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Quasimodo]] gets to reprise "Out There", getting an absolutely stunning spotlight on one of Disney's films often seen as a smaller cult classic. The castle is projected to look as gorgeous as Notre Dame herself.
** Disney/{{Moana}} gets a segment singing "How Far I'll Go". The fireworks take on the shape of the swirl symbol of the Heart of Te Fiti, and [[spoiler: the late Grandma Tala]] puts in a tearjerking appearance as well [[spoiler: in her reincarnated stingray form.]]
** A segment revolving largely around fun Disney moments features a medley of "[[Disney/{{Tarzan}} Trashing the Camp]]" (much like ''Hunchback'', this is another surprising spotlight for a movie that's been underrepresented in Florida for a while), "[[Disney/TheLionKing Hakuna Matata]]", "[[Franchise/ToyStory You Got A Friend In Me]]", "[[Disney/TheJungleBook The Bare Necessities]]", bookended by "[[Disney/{{Aladdin}} Friend Like Me]]" which is more of a showstopper than ever.
** A segment depicting the epic battles of Disney starts with an introduction from [[Disney/{{Mulan}} the Emperor of China]], who repeats his iconic wisdom that "the flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all". Cue an attack from the Huns, followed by [[WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles Syndrome and the Omnidroid]] and [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ursula fighting Eric]]. Then the castle transforms into a war-torn Pride Rock, where Simba and Scar have their BattleAmongstTheFlames set to "To Die For". This piece also accompanies Aladdin vs Jafar and Prince Phillip vs Maleficent. The ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' mini-segment is just as epic as you'd expect given the musical score of Creator/HansZimmer is booming.
** The climax of the show starts off quiet, until the spirit of Mufasa appears on the castle. He gives most of his "Remember Who You Are" speech, only this time, it's set to the epic horns of the opening of "[[Disney/{{Hercules}} Go the Distance]]". The combination of the booming voice of Creator/JamesEarlJones echoing around you accompanied by one of the most inspirational Disney songs ''ever'' is nothing short of bone-chilling.

* For the [[MilestoneCelebration 25th anniversary]] of ''Disneyland Paris'', the park held a special character cavalcade. The catch? Not only did they use all of the characters you'd expect to see like Mickey and the gang, [[Franchise/DisneyPrincess the princesses]], and some popular Pixar characters, they also went far enough to use some popular and rare characters too. The Disney/ThreeLittlePigs, [[Disney/RobinHood King Leonidas]], Disney/TheRescuers, [[Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit Roger and Jessica]], WesternAnimation/DarkwingDuck, [[Disney/TheEmperorsNewGroove Kuzco]], [[Disney/{{Aladdin}] The Sultan of Agrabah]], [[Disney/ChickenLittle Chicken Little and Abby]], WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb (who currently aren't available to meet), [[Disney/AtlantisTheLostEmpire Milo and Kida]], [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Pleakly, Stich's cousins]], [[Disney/AliceinWonderland The Cheshire Cat]], you name it. They were all there!
