Interesting. I would have thought they would want it ready for the summer crowds.
Strangely, MiceAge did mention this not too far back, so I am actually not surprised that they are pushing for D23.Sorry for the double post, but Fantasmic will be back July 17!

Didn't they mention it in a previous D23 article, alongside that Repunzel would have a scene in the show?Interesting that they have yet to mention the new rumored Pirates of the Caribbean section of Fantasmic. Did they nix it or are they wanting it be more of a surprise?
I believe there was a leaked D23 article that was then quickly taken down that mentioned Pirates of the Caribbean but nothing official has been announced on the actual Disneyland site. So as of now Aladdin and Lion King seem to be the only things officially announced for the new show.Didn't they mention it in a previous D23 article, alongside that Repunzel would have a scene in the show?
I get the feeling that this was all supposed to be announced sooner than it actually was. That's a huge bummer for anyone from out of town. I totally understand why they picked that day though.I'll be there for D23 weekend... slightly gutted to hear that the new Fantasmic will debut only one day after I leave.
Those all sound like wonderful additions. If only Orlando's version would receive love.MiceChat is now reporting that soft opening for Fantasmic! will begin on Saturday Night, with those at D23's DPR Keynote recieving comp Fast Passes for the first soft opening of the show.
