Incredible submitted by Daniel Saltzman on February 16, 2010, 11:03am Fantasia, in many ways, was Walt Disney's masterpiece. A perfect blend of music and animation, the stories contained on this disc will stick in your mind for the rest of your life. Appropriate for all ages, though younger children should watch with a family member.

Unique animated feature submitted by FordAlpha on July 30, 2018, 1:23pm This pet project of Walt Disney is a unique animated feature in that it doesn't have a unifying plot. It's a series of short films that interpret classical concert pieces through animation. Some of the shorts have clear, kid-friendly plots, especially "The Sorcerer's Apprentice", probably the best known part of "Fantasia". Others don't really have a plot and are more abstract; some are downright confusing and frightening for kids.

Wonderful submitted by lstorc on August 27, 2018, 3:39pm This is a uniquely satisfying cinematic experience! It's entertaining no matter what age you are.

Fantasia submitted by crp on August 6, 2019, 7:00pm Classic Disney; love this

A Classic submitted by aynsley on August 11, 2019, 11:23pm I have loved this since I was a kid. I love seeing my daughter transfixed while watching only music (no dialogue) tell a story fleshed out by beautiful animation. Some clips are too scary for very young children, but each animated short stands alone. So it’s easy to allow just a 15 minute viewing of whichever pieces are appropriate for your child (or yourself).

Unique and memorable submitted by Princess Cimorene on August 9, 2020, 4:13pm I recently rewatched this and was shocked to realize how much impact the imagery had on me as a kid. The colors and concepts have made regular appearances in my dreams for my whole life and the mental connection I have between color and sound (and movement) is so clearly represented in this film.

Love It submitted by daniellawrencelupton on August 24, 2020, 6:53pm I love Beethoven's Ninth and Zeus.
