When Walt Disney World Resort first reopened, Disney, announced that nighttime spectaculars would not be available for Guests. That means that for the time being — since the theme parks reopened in mid-July — Guests haven’t been able to see Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom or Fantasmic! at Hollywood Studios, amid other nighttime shows.

But when will Fantasmic! be up and running again? We aren’t so sure, but it appears that the show won’t be operating anytime soon. The latest aerial images from @bioreconstruct show that the Fantasmic! the lagoon is still drained.
