Old school ‘Fantasmic’ returns to Disneyland with massive crowds
Review: The what’s-old-is-new-again version of the nighttime spectacular is like seeing an old friend for the first time in more than a year.
PUBLISHED: May 25, 2024.

“‘Fantasmic’ returned to the Rivers of America at the Anaheim theme park on Friday, May 24 after a yearlong hiatus caused by a towering inferno that engulfed the show’s signature fire-breathing audio-animatronic dragon in April 2023.

“The not-so-new scenes in the returning show included Peter Pan, Captain Hook and a band of scurvy pirates on the Sailing Ship Columbia last seen in 2017 and a 35-foot-tall Maleficent on a cleverly disguised scissor lift not seen on a regular basis since 2009.”

“Traffic was backed up on Ball Road at 7 p.m. as annual passholders streamed in for the show only to find Disneyland directing traffic to the Toy Story parking lot because the Mickey and Friends and Pixar Pals garages were filling up quickly to capacity.

“Disneyland cast members in front of the River Belle Terrace were telling guests at 8 p.m. that viewing areas were full and to come back for the later show — or on another day.”

“A Disneyland diver was eventually able to unclog the underwater track and save one of the two shows for the thousands of anxious viewers lining the Rivers of America.”
