Disney Shares First Look at New Fantasmic! Scenes

For more than two years, Guests visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort have had to walk by the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater, which is the home of the popular nighttime show, Fantasmic!. Fantasmic! closed when the theme parks were forced to shut down because of the COVID-19 pandemic and, during the shutdown, Disney announced that the show would be undergoing a major refurbishment. Photos shown during the refurbishment showed the entire area drained and massive work being done.
