‘Fantasmic!’ Returns to Walt Disney World November 3, 2022


Walt Disney World has finally given an exact date for their “Fantasmic!” show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios to reopen, and it is November 3, just a few weeks away.

What’s New?

The larger-than-life, open-air nighttime musical will boast the live performers, stunning effects, rousing music and dazzling pyrotechnics you know and love, but there is also a new sequence.

The new heroes sequence features a high-energy Aladdin chase with stunts never before seen on the “Fantasmic!” stage, a powerful scene with Elsa set to the song “Show Yourself,” and stirring moments with Pocahontas, Moana and Mulan.

Disney says for the Mulan segment, the creative team brought in Mimi Chan, the original muse and model animators used when bringing the character of Mulan to life for the 1998 animated film, to make sure the Chinese martial arts moves were authentic.

“We know this show means so much to people, and we’ve kept that in mind every step of this journey.” says Disney Live Entertainment Producer, Laurice Marier.

“Even beyond the new scene, we’ve taken this time to upgrade the lasers, the lighting, the sound, all to bring this show back even more beautiful than it’s ever been. We’re all really just so excited for guests to see it.”

The new segment bumps the total run time of the show up to 29 minutes.

Cast members will have two preview opportunities before the show opens to the public.
