It features a montage of all 61 films released by the studio over the last 100 years which pays tribute to Disney as well as moments featuring characters from films, such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, The Little Mermaid, The Princess and the Frog, Frozen, Encanto, Wish, and many other films.[7]

At the start of the show, an introduction welcomes guests with the following words:

"For over a hundred years, Walt Disney Animation Studios has invited audiences to believe things never possible. And so tonight, we once again invite you to wish upon stars, to step into the unknown, and to join us on this our Wondrous Journey."

Shortly afterwards, the music begins with Plio's opening narration from Dinosaur before the show theme It's Wondrous begins:

"Some things start out big, and some things start out small, but sometimes the smallest thing can make the biggest change of all."

During the introduction, the projection on the Fantasmic! stage shows lights with the same colors as Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather, while other buildings just show blue searchlight-like lights.

Critical reception

The show received critical acclaim from the guests for showcasing nearly all animated films and shorts made by Disney.

It is Disneyland's first show to have enough projected content to allow Guests something new to find if they were to watch a performance without fireworks.

In addition the selection of characters and film moments has multi-generational appeal, whether Cinderella or the more modern Atlantis and the many in between. This inclusivity makes audiences feel included and celebrated regardless of a particular film's box office success which is so often the guide for subject matter in these productions.
