Best shows on the Fantasy?
 
Hi! Just looking for opinions on the 'not to miss' shows on the Fantasy. I'm currently contemplating not attending every show every night (I think that would get tiresome) but don't want to miss out on any must see's. So, looking for opinions- if you only wanted to see a show 3 of the 7 nights, which would you see?Which are the best? Aladdin? Wishes? Believe? What about the hypnotist? Consensus on what is worth it/not worth it woudl be appreciated so we cna have some pool time without worrying we are missing something great!!

FYI we were on the Dream a couple of years ago, loved The Golden Mickey's, but hated Villians, so if that gives you any idea of taste. :) We missed the other shows on board!!

I am probably a bad one to comment as I like all of the shows. It partly depends on the actors.

However, if I had to pick one NOT to miss, for me it would be wishes. I think that it just really well done, and has a lot of great scenes.

Wishes, and villians tonight

I would rate them in the following order not counting the welcome/farewell shows:

1. Wishes
2. Aladdin
3. Believe

Wishes really disappointed me.

It seemed to be geared at the late teen crowd...which is probably the least represented demographic at the shows in the first place. I just really had no connection to that show.

Alas...

Villians isn't on the Fantasy.

I agree that Wishes focuses on the teen years, but it hit home to me now that the kids are becoming teens -- just as Dreams has made me cry every single time thinking about my kids growing up. I think they were considering the parents of those teens also.

My feelings exactly. Really missed the demographic watching the show I thought. Probably like it better if we had teenage kids. Our favorite was Aladdin by far followed by Believe. The genie was great in both shows.

Wishes-NO DOUBT
 
For our first Disney Cruise on the Fantasy last year...I went with DH and my two boys thinking I was not going to get to see the shows...((eww that's girly)) after Wishes..not only were my boys and my husband on the edge of their seats loving every second... :cheer2: ...but we HAD to see every other show EVERY NIGHT!! My boys were 7 and 10 and VERY BOY! So if they loved it and were hooked by Wishes, that is the must see show... , but you will be back for the rest!! :rotfl2: I really thought the shows were great..but miss...no REALLY!! They are WORTH IT!!! Go see them..you will love them!!!

Aladdin, Believe.
I like wishes, very emotional for me even though my daughter is only 7. She preferred Aladdin.She can't stop talking about it for a long,long time.

If you were sure you did not want to see the show every night, I would skip night 1 and 7. Night one is the Welcome show and night 7 is sort-of the "see you later" show. Both are good, but all 3 original productions are much, much better.

As for the original productions, I thought Aladdin was amazing, followed by Believe and then Wishes.

The other nights will be different depending on your cruise. Someone mentioned a hypnotist, which we didn't have on our latest cruise. Highly recommend the ventriloquist if he is on your cruise. Hilarious. "Buckets and Boards" was also on our last cruise, and there was a Magic Act on our 2012 cruise. Both were good, but I could see skipping them if you wanted some evening pool time.

We just got back and there was a fantastic magic show instead of Buckets n Boards. We did not like the first show and skipped Believe because we did not like it the first time we saw it. Loved Aladdin, liked Wishes. Ventriloquist was fantastic...don't miss the family show in the Tube. My son was chosen to be the "dummy" and it was hysterical!
