Fantasmic Drained at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    With nighttime spectaculars still paused as a part of the Disney World reopening plan, a new aerial photo shows that the Fantasmic lagoon has been drained.

    As seen in the photo below from friend of the site @bioreconstruct, the lagoon that is typically filled to assist with a variety of boats and water projection screens is currently drained.

    Disney has not announced when they might bring nighttime spectaculars back, but with shortened park hours going into effect on September 8th, it’s unlikely we see fireworks anytime soon.

    Stage shows, parades and fireworks cannot take place in this new, unprecedented environment.

    Of course, Disney is working on getting some shows back up and running. While Disney has taken the step of introducing some interim shows while they finalize negotiations with the Actors’ Equity union, we hope to see the stage shows guests know and love return shortly. That said, those shows would be in a controlled environment such as a building and would not be on the scale of a nighttime spectacular like Fantasmic – which will remain closed.

    1. I don’t understand with the outdoor seating and the size of the amphitheatre why they can’t just reduce capacity with safe distance from one another? The wave wouldn’t be the same,but we can live with that 🤔.

    2. Honestly with school going back and for vacation you and your family should be required a covid test to get into the parks and a negative test result

    3. Why would anyone pay the prices to stay in the resorts and have nothing going on at Disney. I have rescheduled my visit 4 times and am about to get my money back. The magic is gone!

    4. Sad in a way. Yes sane show for awhile but I would take that over ALL Parks nighttime spectaculars canceled. I get the pandemic and we may need to adjust to this as the NEW WAY but these vacations and park tickets are expensize. Short hours and no shows is a drag.
