    When is Fantasmic returning to Disney World in 2022? Can you still book Fast passes 30 days ahead with ticket reservations. Cannot see this on the app now?

    Hiya Patrick!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! Oh, Patrick, I can't wait for Fantasmic! to return to the Walt Disney World Resort either. I can hear the music when I close my eyes. "Imagination! Dream a fantastic dream!" I can even see Mickey doing his little dance and blowing us all away with his magic tricks. Boy, oh boy, I can't wait!

    Unfortunately, although Fantasmic! has returned to the Disneyland Resort, we have yet to hear when the nighttime spectacular will return to the Walt Disney World Resort at Disney's Hollywood Studios. Indeed, at the beginning of the pandemic, Disney announced that it would go through a phased reopening, and offerings are still coming back regularly. To stay updated on Disney Parks news, I highly recommend that you keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog, as they will most probably be the first to announce when Fantasmic! returns. In the meantime, don't forget to watch the new nighttime spectaculars Disney Enchantment and Harmonious at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT respectively!

    As for your FastPasses, this system is unfortunately not available anymore. Instead, you can purchase the new Disney Genie+ service on the day of your visit, which is very similar to the FastPass system. Instead of making your selections 30 days in advance, you can start selecting return times for your favourite attractions at seven A.M. on the day of your visit after making sure to purchase the service. You can make these selections on your My Disney Experience mobile app in the "My Genie Day" section in the three-line menu. The best part, however, is that you can use other services simultaneously! The complimentary Disney Genie service takes your preferences and uses them to create an itinerary for you. To make the most out of your vacation, you can also purchase Individual Lightning Lanes, which are like individual FastPasses. These, along with your Disney Genie+ selections, will all appear in the "Tip Board" section. 

    I hope this was helpful, Patrick, and that you and your Ohana will have the best day ever on your upcoming Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your visit, please don't hesitate to reach out. We are always happy to help you make your dreams come true!

    Have a magical day,
