Last year, the beloved nighttime spectacular Fantasmic! at Disneyland faced an unexpected interruption when a fire erupted during the middle of the performance. The devastating incident destroyed the attraction’s Maleficent dragon, which was an integral part of the show. As a result, the attraction was shuttered, with no notice of returning anytime soon.

This unfortunate incident left fans eagerly hoping for its return as Fantasmic! holds a special place in the hearts of many park guests. The closure sparked widespread speculation and concern among Disney enthusiasts, who eagerly awaited updates on when the show would make its grand comeback.

Now, a resolution has finally been made as Disney officially updated its calendar to reflect the show’s return.

Fantasmic! Added to Disney’s Calendar

Fantasmic at Disneyland Park is a breathtaking nighttime spectacular that captivates guests of all ages. This enchanting show takes place on the Rivers of America, where Mickey Mouse uses his vivid imagination to conjure fantastical scenes filled with music, lights, and beloved Disney characters. The combination of water screens, pyrotechnics, and live performers brings scenes from classic Disney movies to life in a dazzling display.

As the night falls at Disneyland Park, guests eagerly gather along the banks of the Rivers of America to witness the magic of Fantasmic! The show begins with Sorcerer Mickey orchestrating the dreamscape, inviting the audience into a world where imagination knows no bounds. From the iconic steamboat to dancing fountains and colorful lighting effects, every element of Fantasmic! is meticulously choreographed to create an unforgettable experience.

After around a year of closure, Disneyland’s Fantasmic will resume performances at Disneyland Resort. This thrilling news has been speculated before, but it was made official yesterday on Disneyland’s app and website.

What Will Change in Fantasmic 2.0?

While the show will return, fans should be prepared that things will not be exactly the same as they were before. After the fire incident, Disney officials determined that the Disney Park dragon was not safe. It was previously announced that Maleficent would not be returning alongside the Fantasmic reopening, but no replacement has been announced as of now. Many fans speculate what could possibly replace such a large component of the ride in such a short time.
