Of these. few attractions are as beloved as Disney’s “Fantasmic!” at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at the Walt Disney World Resort.

The show, which had been temporarily closed until November 3, 2022, has been incredibly successful in its return and has had audiences cheering and on their feet in celebration of the show coming back to the Disney Park.

Fantasmic!” has brought in so many Disney Park Guests to the Disney Resort after being closed for two years that Disney has elected to make a change to accommodate even more Guests through the rest of the years.

Here’s what Disney has to say about the new and improved “Fantasmic!”

A Night When Dreams Come True

Fast asleep, Mickey Mouse dreams that he is a mighty sorcerer’s apprentice with the power to control water, color and magic. 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!

“Fantasmic!” now features scenes from multiple movies, including Moana, Frozen 2, Mulan, Aladdin, Pocahontas, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and The Lion King.
