Fantasmic! Scheduled to Return to Nighttime Dreams at Disneyland Park this Spring


Magic is coming to the Disneyland Resort! In just over a month, Mickey’s dreams will be taking center stage at Rivers of America and Fantasmic! comes back to Disneyland!

The Sailing Ship Columbia has been under refurbishment since earlier this month. Because the Columbia plays an important role in our favorite nighttime spectacular, Fantasmic! has not been able to make its regular nightly appearances along the Rivers of America. Luckily, it will be back in just a few weeks time! According to Disneyland’s refurbishment schedule, the first day back will be Friday, March 8 and will perform at 9:00 PM and 10:30 PM.

These performances come the day after the highly anticipated 90s Nite at the Disneyland Resort. Though the show will not be running during this after dark event, there will be so many offerings that guests won’t know what to pick first! Also, for guests who have made a trip out of this 90s Nite event, it will mean a full weekend full of adventures!

This refurbishment and many others came as part of Project Stardust, a mission to make repairments to the park before Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge opens this summer. You may have noticed things like Sleeping Beauty Castle or some walkways around the park blocked off. This is all part of the bigger picture to make things more magical! Here are a few more things you can expect to see under refurbishment this spring.


  • Sleeping Beauty Castle Walkthrough
  • Astro Orbiter
  • Space Mountain
  • Silly Symphony Swings
  • Lube-O-Rama

Though it’s hard to see offerings we love go into refurbishment, it always creates a better experience once it’s done! There will most likely be more attractions that see some extra TLC before the opening of Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, but only time will be able to tell!

What do you think about the upcoming refurbishment schedule? Let us know what you hope to see!
