No Showtimes Listed for Fantasmic! in Disneyland After Accident


The Fantasmic! schedule at Disneyland has been pulled through next weekend

It appears Disneyland is suspending further performances of Fantasmic! Despite some initial reporting that the show would return this weekend with the dragon operating in B-Mode, we did some further digging and discovered performances of Fantasmic! at Disneyland have been canceled through May 4, 2023.

Once Fantasmic! returns, it will likely operate with dragon Maleficent in ‘B-Mode.’ B-mode is the term used for a ride or attraction that is operating with an alternate effect, generally due to downtime or an error. On Rise of the Resistance, for example, B-mode is put in place when the Kylo Ren animatronic is not working and guests instead encounter Kylo on a ship flying outside of the Star Destroyer.

The dragon normally breaths fire as it battles with Mickey during the show. The fire effect recently caused the dragon to catch fire, resulting in the dragon being destroyed, the show being closed, and the effect used on the dragon being suspended at all Disney theme parks worldwide. It is likely that once Fantasmic! returns, the dragon will need to operate in B-Mode until the fire-breathing dragon is fully repaired and the suspension of the fire effects are lifted.
