Fantasmic to Remain Closed at Disneyland Through Summer Following Maleficent Incident

    Disneyland has announced that Fantasmic will remain paused through at least Labor Day in early September as teams “evaluate the show”. Here’s the statement from Disneyland:

    With the goal of delivering the best possible show for our Guests, we have made the difficult decision to put Disneyland Resort’s “Fantasmic!” on hiatus through at least Labor Day. 

    We are taking this time to evaluate the show and explore opportunities to add new magic and touches for Guests to enjoy. Guests who had a previously-booked “Fantasmic!” Dining Package will be notified of the hiatus. More information will be coming soon on alternate experiences for Guests this summer.

    Fantasmic has been closed since Maleficent was engulfed in flames in April.
