    Favorite Show in WDW

    What is your favorite show in WDW (and why!?)

    I tried to cover all of the "shows" (excluding some dinner shows like the Poly Luau), and threw in a few extinct ones as well.

    If I missed any... let me know as I'll add it!

    first of all, The Hunchback of Notre "Dane"?

    not making fun Lou. just thought the typo was kinda funny.

    as for my choice, I know it's corny, but I've always had a fondness for the Indy Stunt show.

    I also went with the Indiana Jones stunt show! I'm a mark for Indiana Jones as it is, plus it's just a fun show with action and comedy mixed in! The now extinct diamond horseshoe revue was a close second though for personal memories. The can-can ladies were dancing all over me and my dad one time....it was fun!

    Got to go with Fantasmic here. I find it to be the very best of a mix of classic Disney with a very cool presentation. The music and the "stage" are great, and the ending is perfect!

    But that long wait!

    Can't handle it in the summer without the dinner package!

    in case anyone is wondering, I was the one who picked the Diamond Horseshoe Review. I have fond memories of that show and it's original, the Golden Horseshoe Review.

    I, too, have great memories of the Revue. My father loved going there an although I wasn't always crazy about the show itself (being quite young maybe), I still remember going every year (Remember when you had to make reseravtions??)

    Still not sure about all of the hype for Fantasmic!... I left a little disappointed when I first saw it... (then again, maybe the 2 hour wait and the 120 degree heat and 200% humidity had something to do with it)

    I voted for Fantasmic, but Illuminations is my favorite. Sorry to hear about your first experience with Fanstasmic, but try to sit there when it's only 45 degrees and a brisk wind and you thought it was going to be 65 and calm. Thankfully, that was the 2nd time we saw the show. The first time was perfect weather.

    Looks like I made it a 3-way tie with my vote for Indy. I have some fond memories of the dancers at the horseshoe, but you've gotta admit that it's not every day that you get to see things being blown up at Disney!

    I will not argue with you about "blowing things up". My memories of the Golden/Diamond Horseshoe go way back. I used to attend a show it seems like several times a week back when I was a CM. Then there was the time that Pecos Bill and I got into several squirt gun fights (yes I snuck in a squirt gun and sat in the front row and returned fire several times. And it didn't stop that day as each time I returned for several trips, Pecos Bill would let me have it until I ran into him in the InnBetween (that was an employee restaurant at DL) and made up. The story truly is much funnier when I tell the long version because it involved a large family from Michigan as well who ended up in the line of fire.

    Fantasmic! for me, during my tenure working for Disney, I made sure to see that show as often as I could. I got so misty eyed during it. (Favorite part is definately the Riverboat near the end) Although I would recommend bringing a magazine, or cd player, that wait is a tough one (or you could just sit back and enjoy the music they play, they have the country version of Kiss the Girl!)
    All the people will look up and shout: "Save us!" and I'll whisper...'no'.

    Who watches the watchmen?
