If the truly spectacular nighttime spectacular at Disney’s Hollywood Studios had been gone for one month, it would have been too long. But the exciting Guest-favorite nighttime show has been missing for so long that some new fans have never had the opportunity to experience it and see for themselves why there’s such buzz about Fantasmic!

In late 2021, Disney Parks promised fans that Fantasmic! would return in 2022, but as the year begins to wind to a close, many were skeptical about a 2022 return.

On Wednesday morning, however, Disney Parks tweeted the official return date for the long-lost nighttime show! Fantasmic! will return to the parks on Thursday, November 3! It’s closer than ever!

For Guests who’ve never experienced Fantasmic!, Disney Parks describes it best:
Featuring stunning effects, thrilling stunts, dazzling pyrotechnics and rousing music, this larger-than-life show is painted on a grand canvas of dancing water and light. Overflowing with silly and suspenseful surprises, it will leave your entire family smiling from ear to ear!

The Disney Villains—including Maleficent in the form of a towering, 40-foot-tall dragon—turn Mickey’s dream into a nightmare, but don’t underestimate the power of Mickey’s imagination!The fantastic fantasy includes Disney Characters from some of your favorite animated films:

  • Moana
