Disney Parks Blog describes this nighttime spectacular as follows:

“Fantasmic!” is an emotional extravaganza of colorful Disney-animated story scenes, choreographed to an exciting musical score. The waters of the Rivers of America come alive as Mickey Mouse dreams he is the Sorcerer’s Apprentice and faces dastardly villains, using the power of his imagination to save the day. Along the way, fantastic events and images as seen in stories like “Fantasia,” “The Jungle Book,” and more come to life with live performers, character appearances, enhanced special effects and pyrotechnics.

Fantasmic! will be joining other nighttime spectaculars that have already made their triumphant return to the Parks, World of Color at Disney California Adventure, plus the Main Street Electrical Parade and Disneyland Forever fireworks spectacular at Disneyland Park.
