Disney's Hollywood Studios Part II

Entertainment, Parades, & Fireworks
[x] Block Party Bash - Duration: 22 min. - Location: Hollywood Blvd.
* Unlike a parade, the Pixar-themed Block Party Bash is not a continuously moving procession. It's a staged street performance that rolls out and stops. Twice. Dressed as everything from cowgirls to ladybugs, cheerleaders dance to disco, Motown and rock classics. Joining them are acrobats and jumping stilt-walkers, as well as characters from the "Toy Story" films, "A Bug's Life" (1998), "Monsters, Inc." (2001), and "The Incredibles" (2004).
[ x ] Fantasmic! - Duration: 25 min. - Location: outdoor pavilion off of Sunset Blvd.
* My favorite show BY FAR. Disney seems to pull out all of the stops the company could muster--boats, cannons, characters, fireworks, flames, fountains, lasers, music, smoke, even video projected onto water screens. It tells a story of good versus evil, as a dreaming Mickey Mouse imagines colorful animals and princesses and vanquishes Disney villains. Most of the action takes place on a 60-foot-tall island mountain, which sits about 100 ft in front of a semicircular amphitheater. In between is a narrow lagoon that's filled with fountains and hidden special effects. It only places a few times a week, but sometimes twice in one night.
