We have been waiting so long, and now we have a reopening for Disney World’s iconic nighttime show, Fantasmic!
Fantasmic! Changes and Progress
The Fantasmic show has delighted Guests since 1992 (with its closure in 2016). This show has remained closed since the reopening of the parks.
Guests visiting Disneyland have enjoyed Fantasmic! since May 28th. However, East Coast Disney fans have wondered when we will once again enjoy this nighttime entertainment.
This past August, Disney shared that the lights had returned as rehearsals are now in place for Fantasmic! Since that time we have seen testing for fireworks, music, and lighting during the early morning hours at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Even more, we knew this announcement has been coming. We recently shared we would expect to hear an announcement this week! See those details HERE.
Earlier, we shared that Fantasmic would returning in 2022. Disney shared that Fantasmic! will reopen with a few changes. For one, the Pocahontas scenes were being replaced, and you can read about that HERE. Disney shares:
“The iconic “Fantasmic!” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios will make its much-anticipated return later in 2022 with a new show sequence featuring Disney characters – Mulan, Elsa, Aladdin, Pocahontas and Moana – in heroic moments, as well as new technical enhancements.
Reopening for Fantasmic!
Disney fans look forward to the largest Disney fan event in the world, the D23 Expo. It includes Disney, Pixar, Star Wars, Marvel, Television, Streaming, Theme Parks, Products, Online, Music, and Live Entertainment, just to name a few. Fans were disappointed that Disney World’s Fantasmic reopening date was left out of the announcements.
Now, it’s official! Disney announced Fantasmic will once again thrill guests in November 2022. No official date has been set yet.
Fantasmic reopens at Disney World in November 2022.
