Yes, you read it correctly! With years of having to get there hours early to guarantee a seat Disney have made the decision to add extra capacity to the already huge amphitheatre. According to the Disney Parks Blog
We’re installing an additional 1,000 seats in the Hollywood Hills Ampitheatre for the popular Fantasmic! shows.
This confirms that there are certainly no plans to get rid of a nighttime show in Disney’s Hollywood Studios but doesn’t put paid to the rumours of a possible overhaul of Fantasmic. Over the past few years, Disneyland has seen some changes to its show but the Walt Disney World version has remained unchanged since it debut in the late 90s. Could this new seating construction coincide with a change to the show? If so, what would you like to see in a future version?
