It has glitter and glitter. He’s got the Millennium Falcon. It has the Muppets in all their 3D glory.
And after the gradual reopening due to the pandemic, Disney’s Hollywood studios have finally recovered from nightly shows.
But after show times recently disappeared online, it looks like two of the Disney theme park’s nightly shows are back on Disney’s online show schedule.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida is home to an array of shows, including For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration, Beauty and the Beast, and later this month, The Indiana Jones Stunt Show. Spectacular.
Fans missed out on the beloved Fantasmic! Nighttime show, which was revealed at Destination D23 to return next year. When the show returns to Disney Studios in Hollywood, it looks like new characters from Frozen (2013), Moana (2016) and Aladdin (1992) will join Mickey in his dream.
In the meantime, Disney visitors were able to enjoy The Wonderful World of Animation and Disney Movie Magic, two shows that are played every night at the Chinese Theater.
The shows themselves incorporate advanced projection technology to illuminate the Chinese theater with clips from Disney films.
Disney Movie Magic debuted in 2017, just before the Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular fireworks show. The Marvelous World of Animation premiered on May 1, 2019, as part of the park’s 30th anniversary celebration, replacing Disney Movie Magic.
Recently, these two shows were no longer listed online as of December 1. On Disney’s website, the shows both said “No times available” until January 29.
Now, Disney is listing the schedules online for the Nighttime Spectacular through December 30, 2021, with Disney Movie Magic still starting at 8:40 p.m. and Wonderful World of Animation at 9:00 p.m.
The Disney Movie Magic nighttime show is described below:
Fall in love again with unforgettable characters and beloved stories. After the sun sets, a compilation of favorites sparkle on the iconic facade of the TCL Chinese Theater in the park.
During this 10 minute treat, you will enjoy memorable scenes from the series Indiana Jones and the Pirates of the Caribbean, and many more. Let yourself be carried away again!
The Wonderful World of Animation projection show at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is described as:
This thrilling projection show will take you on an incredible journey through over 90 years of Disney and Pixar animation.
Watch in amazement as the facade of the Chinese Theater magically transform, displaying this moving tribute to animation. Discover spectacular sequences celebrating themes like magic, family, adventure, romance and friendship. Each theme comes to life through unforgettable moments from beloved movies, like Sleeping Beauty, The Incredibles, Coco and many more.
Of course, since we can never lose sight of the fact that it all started with a mouse, the show begins and ends as it should with the one and only Mickey Mouse.
It’s unclear if removing online schedules was an issue or if the show websites were being updated, but we now have confirmation that these nightly shows won’t be removed anytime soon!
