On May 11, 2020, Shanghai Disneyland reopened its gates to the public with new strict health and safety protocols put in place. This included no live stage shows or other live performances were able to resume within the theme park.
However, it wasn’t long ago that Shanghai Disneyland decided to take the next step in its phased reopening as it resumed some stage performances with the theme park’s standard social distancing protocols in place.
Five shows are currently operating at Shanghai Disney park including:
- Frozen: A Singalong Celebration
- The Golden Fairytale Fanfare stage show
- The Avengers Training Initiative
- Club Destin-E
- Treasure Cove, the Eye of the Storm: Captain Jack’s Stunt Spectacular stage performance
During these performances and shows, the audience is seated far away from the stage in actual seats — there is currently no standing room offered.
But now it looks as though Shanghai Disney is bringing back another performance — Its nighttime fireworks spectacular, Ignite the Dream – A Nighttime Spectacular of Magic and Light!

It wasn’t long ago Inside the Magic reported that Disney Parks in Walt Disney World stated they would like to resume live stage shows. According to WFTV, Disney’s full statement says:
“As we reopen our theme parks, we would like to include live stage shows. We have heard from many cast members that they are eager to return; however, the Actors’ Equity Association has not agreed to the terms of the recall impacting our ability to invite these cast members back at this time. The health and well-being of our cast members and guests is an important priority for us, and our theme park reopening plan has been approved by county and state officials.”
