Guests visiting Walt Disney World Resort and checking out the debut show of Fantasmic! were completely blown away by what unfolded in front of them.

Massive crowds made their way to Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Wednesday to celebrate the return of the beloved Fantasmic! Nighttime spectacular. The show had not been available for more than two years, closing during the pandemic and undergoing significant refurbishments. Lines to get into the show were seen all the way down Sunset Boulevard, and both shows were completely and totally full.
