Now, as we get closer to the return of Fantasmic!, Imagineers is continuing to work on the nighttime show as it undergoes renovations. Twitter user Bioreconstruct shared an aerial photo of the Fantasmic! website, writing:

Aerial look at the renovation of Fantasmic. Zoom in and there are staged trash cans at each seating section. The aerial platform on the left side of the seat is likely to be used for the maintenance of the lighting of the show.
