MiceChat Forums Retheme

Hello Folks,

Delayed, due to unforeseen circumstances our presentation of "MiceChat Forum Makeover" has been delayed till next weekend.

MiceChat Forums will be going through a design change and much needed update. This update will give a more modern look as well as bring in mobile viewing options. So you may see the forums looking strange as we implement the new look.

Thank you all, and happy MiceChatting!

  • News New Projectors, Mist screens and Aladdin Confirmed Fantasmic!






    Twenty-five years ago, the Rivers of America at Disneyland park became the stage for the colorful tableau of Mickey Mouse’s imagination with the opening of the classic nighttime spectacular, “Fantasmic!” When it returns to Disneyland park this summer, “Fantasmic!” will still be the treasured Disneyland park experience guests have loved for 25 years – complete with its original fanfare and theme song – but all taken to brilliant new heights!

    Upon its return, “Fantasmic!” will feature new magic, including new mist screens that will combine with innovative, state-of-the-art projection technology for brighter and more vibrant visuals than ever before. The show will also feature new scenes inspired by Disney animated classics such as “Aladdin”; one of the dazzling new scenes finds Aladdin and Jasmine floating over a bed of fog on their flying carpet during “A Whole New World.”

    We’ll have more to share on this returning classic soon – including an opening date – so keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog.




    This should be interesting, I'm actually excited for this. I have always been a fan of World of Color over Fantasmic! However this looks to be pretty good, I guess they had to bring back that aladdin musical magic of the flying carpet

    Wow this is GREAT news! I always hoped they changed the show and bring in new elements. I think Alladin is a great addition. I assume the most popular parts of the show will stay the same but some of it could definitely be reworked. Its nice Disney is adding the extra magic wherever they could.

        Nice can't wait to see what else they come up with. Every time they announce changes to F! I chuckle at all the people who tried to discredit mice chat for breaking this news last year ROFL!!!!! The biggest one which hasn't been announced is the POTC scene during the end instead of Peter Pan. Let's see if that one comes true as well.

          It sucks that they did not do a farewell to the old show. I'm sure they could have sold a lot of merch and exclusive stuff for it and give it a proper good bye.

            That concept art is horrible. It's just lazily thrown together on photoshop.

            Looking past that, though, Aladdin is a fine addition and the upgrades to the technology sound great.

              I'm excited to see what Fantasmic has evolved into.
              Merrily on our way to nowhere at all.

                You think it looks funky?
                I could really see that cool cloudy look under a Southern California summer sky. I really love what they're doing here.

                  TBH Fantasmic was long due for an upgrade, so I think that this is a welcome change. Can't wait to see it!

                    So far it sounds like they're adding Aladdin, Pirates will be replacing Peter Pan, Rapunzel and Flynn replacing Snow White, and Jungle Book replaced by Lion King. Did I miss anything?

                      Finally, a change that isn't disappointing! It'll be awesome to see them on the magic carpet once again since their time at the Hyperion. Thanks for the update!

                        Yeah, this is beyond unacceptable as preview art / rendering. Look at that moon. I think overall a mid-core fan with a few skills could have come up with something better.

                                  Aladdin and Rapunzel = Welcome additions.

                                  Pirates = a disgrace of product placement. Why does a real-life franchise with Jonny Depp have a place in Mickey's Imagination??

                                    Anyone else think they might reuse the flying carpet rig (the stage one, not the suspended carpet) from the Aladdin musical in DCA for this?

                                      I'm hoping this one has more motion.

                                        Thanks for that! Getting everything going again on ROA soon is getting me excited. Also, I've never seen either Columbia or Mark Twain going backwards before.
