Due to the ongoing pandemic, Disney’s Hollywood Studios has not hosted the iconic nighttime show, Fantasmic!. At this time, Disney, unfortunately, has not announced a reopening for Fantasmic. In fact, thanks to a recent photo taken by bioreconstruct, we can see that the lagoon is still completely dry as Disney continues to refurbish the area.

The Fantasmic! lagoon has remained drained for over one year now, which is causing a lot of disappointed Guests who are hoping to see this nighttime spectacular return. Biorecontrust shared a new aerial photo along with the caption:

Again, at this time, Disney has not announced a reopening for Fantasmic!, but Inside the Magic will update you as we get information.

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!
The fantastic fantasy includes Disney Characters from some of your favorite animated classics:

Beauty and the Beast
Sleeping Beauty
The Little Mermaid
The Lion King
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
