It has been quite some time since Guests were able to watch the iconic nighttime show, Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, Disney made the decision to halt nighttime shows, including Fantasmic!. The good news is that as we continue to move forward, the theme parks have brought back certain shows including Happily Ever After, and EPCOT Forever. The bad news is, Fantasmic! remains closed with no opening date in sight.
Recently, we reported on the iconic ship shifting positions, meaning that Imagineers are clearly working on this area of the theme park, though we are unsure of exactly what type of work is being done at this time.
Despite the ship shifting positions, the lagoon itself continues to look deserted. Bioreconstruct shared photos to Twitter that show the current refurbishment status of the Fantasmic! lagoon, along with the caption:

In the photos above, you can clearly see that the lagoon itself still looks like a construction site as it remains drained.
Again, at this time, Disney has not announced a reopening for Fantasmic!, but Inside the Magic will update you as we get information.
More on Fantasmic!
In case you have never seen this nighttime spectacular, the Disney World website describes the show as:
A Legendary Tale
Featuring more than 50 live performers, massive sets, stunning effects, dazzling pyrotechnics and rousing music, this larger-than-life show is painted on a grand canvas of dancing water and light like nothing you’ve ever seen. Overflowing with silly and suspenseful surprises, it will leave your entire family smiling from ear-to-ear.
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!
