    Is Fantasmic back open during my stay 3/2 to 3/7?

    Heigh-ho, Jennifer! Welcome to planDisney.

    Can you believe that you'll be at Walt Disney World Resort next week?! "Forget about your worries and your strife." You're almost there! I'm sure you're in those last stages of planning your itinerary. And like many people you're hoping to see Fantasmic! This is my favorite nighttime spectacular.

    Due to the pandemic, Walt Disney World is continuing its phased reopening. So many magical things have returned over the past year. But as the Fairy Godmother once said, "Even miracles take a little time." I'm sad to say that we're still waiting for the return of Fantasmic! All we know is that we can expect it to return sometime in 2022. However, the exact date has yet to be announced. I highly doubt it will return by the time of your trip, I'm afraid. But as Mary Poppins once said, “Everything is possible, even the impossible.” Jennifer, I realize that's not the news you were hoping for. I'd encourage you to keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog for any exciting announcements regarding Fantasmic!

    Jennifer, with The World's Most Magical Celebration happening, there are two new nighttime spectaculars for you to enjoy. I recently had the pleasure of watching Harmonious at EPCOT with my planDisney friends. We watched it from the Italy pavilion around World Showcase and I'd recommend that spot to you if you'd like a good view. I also recently watched Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom Park from a water taxi on Seven Seas Lagoon. It was like being treated to a free fireworks cruise!

    There is also a wonderful new show called Disney KiteTails at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park. I enjoyed this whimsical show so much that I watched it twice in one day (each time was different too!). I'm certain you'll also love the Beacons of Magic displays in each of the four Theme Parks too. My personal favorite is Spaceship Earth in EPCOT.

    If you'd like some fun ideas for your trip, my planDisney friends have put together a list of suggestions, such as must-do experiences, must-eat snacks, must-do restaurants, top tips for adults-only vacations, and planning for downtime on your vacation.

    I hope you have an enchanting vacation, Jennifer. I'm sure you'll make a ton of core memory days.
