“Lights, camera, REHEARSALS! We’re dreaming a fantastic dream as Cast Members begin rehearsing for the opening of FANTASMIC! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios,” Disney said on Facebook. “Stay tuned for more about the return of this iconic show, with fan favorite moments and fresh new touches.”

“Fantasmic” has been suspended since Walt Disney World was forced to close due to the coronavirus pandemic back in 2020.

Back in June, Walt Disney World said the iconic show will return this year with new show sequences and technical enhancements. When the show returns it will join several other entertainment options that have since made its grand return during Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration.

According to Disney’s website, the show features “more than 50 live performers, massive sets, stunning effects, dazzling pyrotechnics and rousing music (and) this larger-than-life show is painted on a grand canvas of dancing water and light like nothing you’ve ever seen before.”
