Following the layoffs there aren’t enough technicians left to put on any night-time shows, parades etc. Which presumably means they don’t expect these to be returning anytime soon.
Fantasmic for example needs around 70-100 technical crew to put on, plus another 100 or so to man the arena, queues etc.
Harmonious is still being progressed and there doesn’t seem to be any word yet as to whether Epcot Forever will be brought back first or if they’ll go straight to Harmonius.
The latest I’ve seen is there are plans to bring night-time shows back in the first half of 2021. But that we can expect a net loss of 2 shows. It isn’t clear if that includes ROL which has already been confirmed as finished. My guess is it’s ROL plus one other being axed.
So that suggests that some of those laid off could be recalled after a few months. If they’re still around of course, otherwise they’d have to hire and re-train a new team.
HEA or an Epcot show are the two obvious ones to bring back first.
Fantasmic is the most labour intensive. But I would have thought SWAGS was the more obvious candidate for not returning. F! can at least be controlled crowd wise in the arena even if getting out again is an issue.
