YMMV / Fantasmic!

  • Awesome Music: The main theme, especially during the finale. Also the "exit music" that plays as the crowd is leaving.
  • Ear Worm: The original theme.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: Some people might just watch this show to see Mickey slay a huge dragon.
  • Most Wonderful Sound: You've been sitting on a blanket for two hours, the sky getting darker, as more and more people gradually fill in the space around you. And then...finally...over the crowd noise, your ears barely detect a bell-like tone. Over the next several seconds it rises in volume, and all is well, because the show is finally beginning!
  • Nightmare Fuel: No surprise, considering how many Disney Villains invade Mickey's dreams.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Regarding Disneyland's 2017 version, the swapping of the Peter Pan scene for one inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl upset fans who considered the Peter Pan scene a highlight, and/or thought it sounded jarring to stick live-action characters in a show mostly inspired by Disney's animated movies, especially ones originating from a live-action series that has become highly divisive.note 
  • They Changed It, Now It Sucks!: Even before the premiere of the so-called Fantasmic! 2.0, some of the first show's oldest fans lamented the loss of Ursula's barge (which Disney frequently had technical problems with), leaving the "Poor Unfortunate Souls" number as nothing more than clips projected against mist.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: Special mention for creativity must go to the clips projected against mist screens and to Disneyland's animatronic dragon. The Tokyo DisneySea version has a nifty cone-shaped structure with LEDs that form appropriate clips, and their dragon doesn't look too shabby either (especially when it appears to emerge from inside the Magic Mirror!).
