Disney Cast Members Welcome ‘Fantasmic!’ Home with Standing Ovation

We want you to get the most out of your ‘luxury villa’ stay in Solterra, Davenport (near Championsgate and just south of the Disney World Resort area). To help out, we have sourced the following blog post to keep you up to date with news from Walt Disney World Resort. Thanks to the guys over at Disney Parks for the original post...

Disney fans have eagerly awaited the return of “Fantasmic!,” one of the longest-running shows at Walt Disney World Resort, and the moment was everything we wanted and more. As more than 5,000 Disney’s Hollywood Studios cast members and their loved ones welcomed the show home last night, Hollywood Hills Amphitheater came alive once again with energy, emotion and entertainment.

The passion was electric
from beginning to finale, with the show receiving a very enthusiastic standing
ovation. “Fantasmic!,” the legendary journey through Mickey’s imagination,
returned with the dazzling lights, dancing waters, and triumphant pyro-filled
mountaintop finale we all adore, and also welcomed an all-new scene featuring
heroes Pocahontas, Mulan, Elsa, Aladdin, and Moana—each greeted with an
eruption of applause for their on-stage debut.

It’s clear “Fantasmic!”
holds special memories for many of us, and the cast at Disney’s Hollywood
Studios were beaming with pride as they welcomed the show home for the first
time since the park’s reopening, “The energy is fantastic… you can tell
everyone missed it,” shared Laura, a food and beverage guest experience
manager. “The cast working the show tonight are thrilled, we’re all thrilled.
I’ve just never felt so many cast so excited in one place!”

“It’s really a dream
come true! I’m so happy, and I feel so lucky,” shared Melissa, a cast member at
PizzeRizzo. “I pour my heart and soul into my work, and I feel like I get it
back with special moments like these.” We’re all dreaming a fantastic dream after this timeless mix of nostalgia, new character
moments, and Disney Cast Life magic. So get ready for showtime: “Fantasmic!” officially reopens Nov. 3 at
Disney’s Hollywood Studios after another night of thrilling Disney Cast Life
previews for Walt Disney World Resort cast members!

That's all folks!
