They are similar, but they are used in different ways. Both are something that is not real...they mean that the thing is imagined. However, a fantasy is usually an imagined story. For example, Harry Potter is a fantasy. Or, you can fantasize about something, which is thinking about something that isn't actually happening. An illusion is a trick. For example, when you watch a magic trick, a lot of those magic tricks are illusions. So, you are seeing something that is not really there.

In addition to those dictionary definitions, I would say that fantasies are normally within your own head. You create them in your mind. Fantasies tend to be ideal, with a positive connotation. Illusions tend to be created by external/ outer things. Generally, other people and objects create illusions that work on you. You are not creating them to trick yourself. Illusions are also seen more negatively, as tricky or deceitful, or a form of lying.
