For the past few months the Fantasmic! lagoon at Disney’s Hollywood Studios has been drained as the show has not been operating since the pandemic closure. Now, there are signs pointing to the nighttime spectacular possibly returning!
The Disney World website describes Fantasmic! as:
“A Legendary Tale
Featuring more than 50 live performers, massive sets, stunning effects, dazzling pyrotechnics and rousing music, this larger-than-life show is painted on a grand canvas of dancing water and light like nothing you’ve ever seen. Overflowing with silly and suspenseful surprises, it will leave your entire family smiling from ear-to-ear.”
Now, Disney has filed a permit to work on the Fantasmic! performance island. The permit says “provide labor, material and/or electrical for construction”.
So, we don’t know exactly what work will be done but something is happening! Disney could be doing regular maintenance, but since the performance island cannot be seen from the rest of the park, there’s a good chance it is being prepared for the return of Fantasmic!
Stay tuned for more information and updates!
