UPDATE on Fantasmic! Construction at Disney World

Recently, Disney World has been welcoming many post-shutdown returns! Trams, character meet and greets, a reimagined Finding Nemo show…the list is pretty long!

Finding Nemo: The Big Blue…and Beyond

But one thing has been missing from these exciting return announcements — Fantasmic! While the show has made its comeback in Disneyland already, Disney World guests continue to wait…and wait…for any sign of a return. And we might just have one!

We often look at construction to get an idea of how close we may be to an attraction or show’s opening. We did this with Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, and we’re currently doing it with the new Moana attraction coming to EPCOT! So, let’s take a look at Fantasmic! to see how close (or far) we are from the show’s opening!


On Twitter, the account @bioreconstruct has provided refurbishment updates for the show. Recently, they noticed water return to the area after it was drained. They also saw a collection of trash cans that weren’t placed throughout the seating area like they normally are.

And a couple days ago, the account noticed that the trash cans were staged at each seating section once again! They also pointed out that the canoes for the Pocahontas section were gone. This makes sense, as Disney already shared that this section will be taken out of the show.

With the trash cans being placed properly in the seating sections, and the area looking ready for the current show (a.k.a. the Pocahontas canoes are gone), we’re hoping to hear a reopening announcement soon!


We’ll continue to keep you updated with the latest on any Fantasmic! news! In the meantime, if you want to learn about more reopenings, check out details on the return of Victoria & Albert’s! Or, check out the return info for Harmony Barbershop!
