After 9 years, Fantasmic is ending at Tokyo DisneySea on March 25, 2020. The show made its debut on April 28, 2011, after replacing the nighttime show “BraviSEAmo!” which ended on November 13, 2010. As of this writing, there is no word on a replacement show in the evenings.
With the Summer Olympics coming in 2020, Tokyo Disney Resort has been busy with refurbishments, new entertainment, and pushing the two expansions at both Parks forward. Let’s take a quick look at “Fantasmic!” and “BraviSEAmo!” at Tokyo DisneySea for nostalgia sake.
Edit: In addition to this news, the Ariel character greeting “Ariel’s Grotto” is closing March 31, 2020, at Tokyo DisneySea.
“Fantasmic!” at Tokyo DisneySea
“Fantasmic!” at Tokyo DisneySea is in the Mediterranean Harbor each night and is the only version that is completely over water. You’re able to find a great view (much like most shows in the harbor) at different angles facing Mount Prometheus. It’s sad to see this show go, but I’m hopeful that whatever comes next will have an exclamation mark in its name (one can hope). If you haven’t seen the show, you can watch by tapping the video below.
BraviSEAmo! at Tokyo DisneySea
Before Fantasmic, we had “BraviSEAmo!”, which was an original nighttime show in the Mediterranean Harbor and featured no characters and a unique story. I remember watching the show during my first visit in 2010 and wondering “What is happening?” The video below was taken during my first visit to Tokyo DisneySea.
