Disneyland has been taking advantage of the downtime for the Rivers of America that was required to squeeze in the 14-acre Star Wars-themed land to also do a little re-imagining of the 25 year old fan favorite – Fantasmic! When it returns this summer the chow will retain its original song and its main star Mickey Mouse, but it will also have new magic.
New Technology: There will be new mist screens that will combine with state-of-the-art projection technology to give guests a brighter, clearer, more vibrant visual of the animation segments than ever before.
New segments: New scenes are planned for the show. A new segment featuring Aladdin and Jasmine floating on a bed of fog during “A Whole New World” has been confirmed. Rumors of new segments include a new Pirates of the Caribbean segment replacing Peter Pan, and new scenes from The Lion King and Tangled.
Disneyland is still waiting for some final details about the Rivers of America operations to come into focus before it can announce an official opening date, but we expect to know that some time soon.
Are you looking forward to Disney adding new stories to Fantasmic! or should they leave it alone?
