Splashtacular was a shortlived stage show at Epcot's Future World that ran from late 1993 to summer 1994.

History

Splashtacular was a loose adaptation of Tokyo Disneyland's 10th Anniversary show "It's Magical!". To better fit Future World, it switched the fantasy themes out for science-fiction ones with an alien sorceress taking the role of Maleficent. Though intended as an exciting new offering to rejuvenate Epcot's attendance, the show would be quickly scrapped when management decided the show clashed with the modern, cutting-edge image of the newly opened Innoventions.

While it lasted less then a year, the show's improvements to the fountain would be retained, forming the basis of the fountain shows that exist to this day. Costumes and props like the TerrorsauX would be sent to the Magic Kingdom to be used in 1994's "Tomorrowland Galaxy Search" show, with the large robot dinosaur being re-dressed as an intergalactic Elvis Presley impersonator.

The complete Splashtacular show was also broadcast on the Disney Channel.

Summary

Mickey Mouse and his friends invite everyone to the Fountain of Nations at the center of Future World to celebrate all the colors of the rainbow and take an imaginative journey into space. However, the festivities are interrupted by an alien sorceress who comes from a planet that lost all color and life in a war and seeks to steal it. A battle ensues between the forces of good and evil, culminating in the sorceress summoning her ultimate weapon, a fire-breathing cybernetic dinosaur called TerrosauX. Mickey defeats the creature by summoning the power of the fountain's water and sends the alien queen into a retreat. Mickey and friends triumphantly celebrate with the fountains and fireworks shooting into the air and a large rainbow banner being unfurled at the back of Spaceship Earth.
