    Why is Cinderella not in Fantasmic?

    A dream is a wish your heart makes, Fiona. And I'm so glad you made it here to planDisney to share your wish.

    You ask a great question, my dear. In fact, it makes me feel like a Disney Imagineer to be asked about the creative decisions of such an iconic show as Fantasmic! in Disney's Hollywood Studios. But alas, I'm only an Imagineer in my dreams, but as my friend Cinderella would say as I stuff my face with cheese, "They can't tell me to stop dreaming."

    So why isn't our sweet, kind, and courageous Cindy not in this fantastic show? Maybe it's because the Fairy Godmother's magic wears off right before the show starts. No, that can't be it. The show doesn't take place after midnight. Maybe she just has so many chores from her Stepmother that she can't tear herself away for long enough. No, I doubt that now that she's Queen of her kingdom. Perhaps she's holding royal balls for, and taking care of, the people of her kingdom that she loves so much.  That's probably more like it.

    In truth, I'm not exactly sure why Cinderella isn't included in Fantasmic! However, there are a great many other characters that take center stage. When it reopened last year, it included some brand-new characters like Moana and Elsa. So while Cinderella may be busy ruling her kingdom, these Disney pals and so many more do a breathtaking job of delivering her message of having courage and being kind.

    But don't worry, my friend Cindy is easy to find. I just visited her a few days ago at Princess Fairytale Hall in Magic Kingdom Park. You can also usually spot her waving to her subjects in the fabulous Festival of Fantasy Parade and greeting Guests who dine at Cinderella's Royal Table. You can also see her inspiring story artfully depicted in the mosaic tilework inside Cinderella Castle.

    You see? There's no shortage of your favorite princess at the Walt Disney World Resort. And who knows? Maybe one day she'll join the cast of Fantasmic! But until then, keep dreaming, Princess. Because if you keep on believing, maybe, just maybe, the dream that you wish will come true.

    If you have any other questions, please reach out to me and I'd be happy to answer. But for now, it's midnight, and I must go turn back into a mouse.

    When there is kindness, there is goodness. When there is goodness, there is magic,
    Jaq...I mean, Matt
