'Fantasmic Steamboat' Removed at Disney's Hollywood Studios Following Dopey's Fall

Following Dopey’s tremendous fall from the top of the Steamboat Willie Steamboatthat regularly appears during the finale of Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Walt Disney World has pulled the Steamboat from the show and replaced it with a simple water-wall effect.

Thanks to @WDWResortRoblox on twitter for sending along the following screenshot from a live stream of “Fantasmic!” last night at Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World:

The assumption is that the boat will be modified for the safety of the performers, but there has been no official word from Disney as of yet. There is no word on when the Steamboat might return to the show at this time, but seeing as it is considered the highlight of the show by many guests, one would assume it will be back soon.
