Disney Parks After Dark: Good Overcomes Evil in ‘Fantasmic!’ at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

Is “Fantasmic!” a must-do for you and your family when visiting Disney’s Hollywood Studios?

This nighttime show features 50 live performers, stunning effects and pyrotechnics, favorite Disney tunes, dancing water and an appearance by Maleficent (as a 40-foot-tall dragon!). The hero of the show is Mickey Mouse, who defeats her “nightmare fantasmic” with a little help from his imagination.

Disney’s Hollywood Studios will mark its 30th anniversary on May 1, 2019.


  • I was wondering what rides etc will be open for the May 1 2019 night promotion at Disney Studios

  • Fantasmic is amazing! I just wish they would update the dragon to be like the one in Disneyland or even Tokyo.

  • The best Nighttime Spectacular (although Happily Ever After and Rivers of Light are a close second and third, respectively) there ever was! Fantasmic brings out all of the emotions in me!
