I have to say I did not care for Villains on the dream and Aladdin on the Fantasy (just saw that one two weeks ago). Believe is a great show and Golden Mickeys is fun, if not slightly dated as far as the movies chosen to be a part of it. and, as much as it makes me sad to say it, I was SO looking forward to Wishes on the Fantasy and could not get past the horrible acting of the three main actors. I've heard hat the entertainment crew on the Fantasy is getting ready to switch, so maybe you'll get a little luckier than I

My family saw Buckets and Boards and said they were awesome! I'm sad I missed them.

My son and I really did not care for Villains on the Dream at all. Left half way through. We did not have time for any other shows on our 3 day. Watching to see what else is popular on the Fantasy for our next cruise. It is longer so we are hoping to see more. But after Villains we are a little gun shy about bothering to go see the big productions at all.

Don't let that sway you. We didn't like Villains either but loved all the others. Especially Believe, Golden Mickeys, Disney Dreams and I hear that Aladdin is very popular !

Villains doesn't compare to the quality/caliber of the other stage shows on DCL. Please don't let that show deter you from seeing the shows on the Magic or Fantasy.

THIS IS WHY YOU SHOULD GO SEE THE SHOWS FOR YOURSELVES! hahahaha!!!!

we LOVE villains (PROJECT CRUELLA??!? YZMA AND KRONK??!! CMON!!!)(we did see it a couple years back when it first started off and it had rough spots), it gets mixed reviews here. saw that toy story one once, not a fan. the dreams and believe ones are fun for the musical numbers (each has numbers that are amazing), the musical theater acting is... sometimes great, sometimes very high school which i feel horrible typing because everyone of those performers is great and giving it 110% but man, we just saw that twice charmed thing people raved about and it was kind of a stinker - again, super neat production values though. we just saw aladding for the first time and that was lots of fun! golden mickeys are an old standby, but always fun and of course we love the musical numbers even if the patter is a bit predictable...

any of the productions will depend some on the cast members and what not but we love villains tonight - i mean like we will quote from it. love.
villains toNIGHT villains toNIGHT villains to-ni-i-ight.... VILLAINS TONIGHT!

Yes...and the last time I saw it, they rigged him and he began to "fly".

I agree that you should see them yourselves....everyone is so different. Villains was our favorite! Hades doing pop culture jokes??? Too funny! I tend to be a glass is half full girl with all things Disney, but Believe was by far my least favorite of all. Too cheesy for me. Yet again, it's personal preference. You never know which ones you'll like until you see them.

We loved Villains Tonight on the Magic. We just saw Golden Mickeys on the Wonder and thought it was OK. I was expecting a lot more after reading these boards. Though I was a little disappointed overall with the actors onboard Wonder vs what we experienced on the Magic last May.

I think teenagers would find villains quite funny. It's like the Tonight show w/ villains as guests.
