Nighttime shows are a massive part of the magic experienced throughout Disney Parks. We are thrilled that one beloved show is coming back in 2024.
Guests traveling to California can enjoy two Disney Parks: Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park. Both parks include unique attractions, shows, and magic.
Disneyland Park is the original Disney Park. Guests will find well-themed lands such as Fantasyland, Adventureland, and Tomorrowland. Beloved rides like Peter Pan’s Flight, Jungle Cruise, the Haunted Mansion, and “it’s a small world” are all found throughout Disneyland Park.
Over at Disney’s California Adventure Park, guests can enjoy themed lands based on beloved movies. Cars Land, Avengers Campus, Pixar Pier, and more. While visiting this unique Disney Park, guests enjoy top attractions like the Incredicoaster and Radiator Springs Racers.
Disneyland combines the history of Disney with the excitement and thrills of new technology throughout these two parks.
The nighttime shows are a considerable part of the magic at these two Disney Parks.
In Disney California Adventure, World of Color brings Disney and Pixar stories to guests through projections and water features. This is a 22-minute show that takes place on select evenings around Paradise Gardens Park.
Over at Disneyland Park, guests can experience a fireworks show on select evenings. The show changes throughout the year, focusing on different holidays during the show. This nighttime show includes fireworks, a fantastic soundtrack, and even unique appearances from some beloved Disney characters.
There is one nighttime spectacular that has been missed at Disneyland Park.

Fantasmic!, a renowned nighttime show, was shut down on April 22, 2023, following a significant issue with the animatronic dragon. During the show, the dragon burst into flames during the finale.
The show takes place on the Rivers of America in Disneyland Park. In the past, the show included numerous Disney characters, projections from many Disney movies, and fireworks.
Since closing, guests have anxiously been waiting for the return of this fantastic show. We now have a date to mark on the calendar.
No additional information was provided about show times or updates that will be seen when the show returns in May.
Previously, Disneyland said that when the show returned, it “won’t include the dragon future, but it will feature new special effects and a thrilling new battle scene between Sorcerer Mickey and Maleficent.”
Although we anxiously await more information regarding what surprises Disney has in store for the updated show, we are thrilled that we can now circle a date on the calendar for its return.
This is a fantastic nighttime spectacular that has been greatly missed at Disneyland. We can’t wait for it to return this spring.
