The good news is that the cast now makes house calls.

DISNEY-MGM‘S HOLLYWOOD STUDIOS, FL — Fans still smarting from the loss of Illuminations (even though Steve is doing a pretty good job as a replacement) now have another show to worry about. Apparently Fantasmic¬†has suffered some drastic budget cuts in recent days.

Positives

On the plus side, a stripped-down version of the show like this is very portable. We would guess that you can get this performance in your own home for only the cost of a few pizzas.

Uncle Walt’s Insider will keep you posted if any further changes are made to the show.
