One famous show that Disney Guests come to watch is Fantasmic! Fantasmic! has become a beloved and iconic nighttime show at Disneyland and Disney’s Hollywood Studios, attracting thousands of Guests every night.

It is a must-see experience for anyone visiting the Parks, offering an enchanting and unforgettable night of Disney entertainment. Sadly, Fantasmic! in Disneyland has been put on hold due to a fire that broke out while in the show. This fire destroyed the Maleficent Dragon, which battles Mickey in his dreams.

Reporter Scott Gustin shared an update on the Fantasmic! Show. Disneyland had previously said that they were exploring different entertainment offerings for the summer since Fantasmic! was to remain closed until Labor Day. Disneyland so far has not given Guests an update on when Fantasmic! will return.

Disneyland previously said teams were exploring alternate entertainment offerings for the summer after Fantasmic! was confirmed to remain closed through at least Labor Day. Nothing new on status of Fantasmic!

While Guests are still waiting for the reopening of Fantasmic! Disneyland and Cast Members are hard at work trying to get this nighttime spectacular back up and running. Guests can now experience Fantasmic! replacement show.
