Fantasmic!  Disney
Disney

This is a neutered version of the Fantasmic 3-D! script.  Fantasmic 3-D! was a guest interaction game for Fantasmic! (similar to what people do at the Rocky Horror Picture Show), but proved to be so disruptive to normal guests that it was banned and removed from the internet.  I have removed all the info on the interaction parts, and posted just Andrew Rich's very detailed script.  For lyrics, check here.

Show Script
Time Line Action
-10:00 ANNOUNCER:
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls. The thrilling spectacle of Fantasmic is now just ten minutes away. So that you may more fully enjoy Fantasmic, the lights surrounding the Rivers of America will be dimmed. For your own safety, and that of others, we request that you remain in the same area until the lights return to normal. Also of the comfort and safety of those around you, we ask that you refrain from smoking before and during the performance, as well as taking any flash photography. Now, get ready for the sensation you'll never forget -- Fantasmic! Starting in just ten minutes.

[1] A Fantasmic! cast member (who asked to remain anonymous) writes: That means 'stab him in the heart'. We (the cast members of the show) wondered about this when the show first opened, so we did some research. Of course asking Barnette Ricci, the director of the show, was who we should of asked first, but still that's what she told us, and since she wrote it, I believe her.

PETER and HOOK swordfight in the rigging of the Columbia.
11:00 - 12:50 FEMALE SINGER:
See...
It in your mind,
And you can find,
In your imagination:
Tales of enchantment,
Beauty and romance,
Happily ever after.
MALE SINGER:
Tale as old as time,
True as it could be,
Barely even friends,
Then somebody bends,
Unexpectedly.
Certain as the sun...
Rising in the East
MALE SINGER is joined by FEMALE SINGER:
Tale as old as time,
Song as old as rhyme,
Beauty and the Beast.
FEMALE SINGER:
What would I give...
If I could live...
Out of these waters?
MALE SINGER:
In your imagination...
FEMALE SINGER:
What would I pay...
To spend the day...
Warm on the sand?
MALE SINGER:
Dream a fantastic dream...
FEMALE SINGER:
Betcha on land,
They understand
That they don't
 Reprimand their daughters.
Bright young women,
Sick of swimming,
Ready to stand...

Ready to stand...

Slave in the Magic Mirror... come from the farthest space... through wind and darkness I summon thee... Speak!  Let me see thy face.
MIRROR:
[1]Famed is thy beauty, Majesty.  But hold; three lovelier maids I see.  And here, in Mickey's imagination, beauty and love will always survive.
EVIL QUEEN:
No! [2]A magic spell in the black of night, * with a scream of fright, * (scream) * and a bolt of light[3], * turn my hair to white![4]
[1] MIRROR appears on semi-transparent mist screen

[3] The Light Towers on stage strobe for a few seconds.
[4] More flashes and fireworks as EVIL QUEEN becomes the WICKED WITCH from Snow White.
14:03 - 14:19 WICKED WITCH:
Now, I'll turn that little mouse's dream into a Nightmare Fantasmic! (laughs) Imagine this! (laughs)

14:22 - 14:30 WICKED WITCH:
Magic Mirror, on the wall, all the forces of Evil I call...

14:31 - 15:39 MIRROR:
You have... the power... (WICKED WITCH merges with MIRROR) to control his mind (laughs)
URSULA:
Oh yes! How exciting! Let's do it! (extended laughing) Hellooo...
(singing) I admit that in the past I've been a Nasty;
They weren't kidding when they called me, well, a witch...
(speaking) hmm... Beluga Sevruga indeed! Ursula will take matters into her own tentacles! Ha! How nice! Mickey Mouse's mind... will be mine! And then I'll make him writhe... I'll see him wriggle like a worm on a hook! To belong... to me... to obey my every whim!  Why not, let's do it!
The Inflatable Ursula appears on the river from stage right and passes the AUDIENCE, with an animated Ursula appearing on the mist screens.
[Note: the Inflatable Ursula has been missing for several years now, and will probably never return]
16:43
On a music cue, VERY BRIGHT pyrotechnic flare on stage right.
16:48 - 16:58 MALEFICIENT:
Now you will deal with me, and all the powers of MY imagination!
MICKEY:
Oh no![1]
The flash and smoke clear to reveal MALEFICIENT from Sleeping Beauty on stage right, and Mickey as the Brave Little Tailor on stage left.
[1] Another bright pyrotechnic flash.
16:59 - 17:39
MALEFICIENT laughs wildly as the screen shows her growing to giant stature, then changing into a fire-breathing Dragon.
17:40 WICKED WITCH:
(cackling) Imagination!
URSULA laughs.
CHERNABOG growls.
DRAGON laughs.

17:59 DRAGON continues to laugh. Screen clears to reveal the huge DRAGON menacing MICKEY.
18:16
On a music cue, the DRAGON breathes fire at MICKEY, and the rivers ignite.
18:17 - 18:35
Fire burns on the Rivers of America, getting closer and closer to the AUDIENCE.
18:36 - 19:11 MICKEY:
 

Huh, y...y...you may think you're so powerful, huh, huh, huhu.  Well, uh, this is my dream![1]

[1]MICKEY shoots a bolt of energy from his sword at the dragon, who reels back, writhes in agony, and dies. The screens pop up again, showing the evil characters dying in reverse order: MALEFICIENT, CHERNABOG, URSULA, WICKED WITCH, EVIL QUEEN.
19:12
Symbolizing the destruction of Evil, a white firework blast explodes onstage.
19:19 - 19:38
The screens come up and TINKERBELLE flutters about, dropping Pixie Dust three times.
19:39 - 20:07
The "Stage Ninjas" appear at the top of the stage and wave their fiber optic wands.
20:08 - 21:58 CHORUS:
See...
It in your mind,
 And you will find,
In your imagination:
Mysteries and magic,
Visions fantastic,
Leading to strange and wondrous dreams.
Dreams,
Of make believe,
But could they all come true...
(the chorus takes a 15 second break, then continues)
CHORUS:
Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh...
In your imagination...
Ahhh, ahhh, ahhh...
In your imagination...
Deep in your mind,
It's magic you'll find,
When out of the night,
Dark forces ignite,
To blind you with frightening schemes;
You use your might,
To brighten the light,
Creating a night of wondrous dreams...
With a burst of light the Mark Twain appears, covered with Disney characters and with MICKEY as Steamboat Willie at the wheel. The boat passes from stage left around the rivers to stage right and proceeds offstage. The characters on the boat are doing an elaborate routine with ribbon wands.
21:58 - 22:43
MICKEY as the Sorcerer's Apprentice appears at the top of the Mill at the rear of the stage. Lasers and fireworks fill the sky in a spectacular finale.
22:44
With a flash of pyrotechnic sparks, MICKEY vanishes from the top of the Mill and reappears, in his tuxedo outfit, at his original position at stage left.
22:48 MICKEY:
Some imagination, huh? (laugh)[1]
[1] MICKEY vanishes in a flash of light, and the show is over!
