Video: Preview the new fireworks show coming to the Magic Kingdom® Park
Earlier this week, the Walt Disney World® Resort announced that the long-running fireworks show at Magic Kingdom® Park, would be closing. Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams has been dazzling audiences inside and around the Magic Kingdom® Park since October 9, 2003.
Throughout its run inside America’s most popular theme park, the show has seen several seasonal changes and adaptations designed to keep it fresh for guests who visit at different times of the year.

Sadly, the Wishes nighttime spectacular will end its 14 year run on May 11, 2017. But don’t worry – the Magic Kingdom® Park will have a fantastic replacement debuting on May 12!
The Happily Ever After nighttime spectacular will showcase some of the greatest Disney adventures – from “Moana,” to “Brave,” and “Big Hero 6.” Of course this new show will include some Disney classics including “Aladdin” and many others! The show will combine projection-mapping technology to display brilliant images and original animations on Cinderella Castle while stunningly synchronized pyrotechnics explode to bring the story to life!
All of this excitement will come together on top of a custom-created musical score, that was recently recorded in London. According to Roger Butterley, Senior Music Producer with Disney Creative Entertainment, “The emotions [of the show] for me is all the things you felt the first time you came to the Magic Kingdom.”
Take a look at all of the work that is going on behind-the-scenes right now to bring Happily Ever After to life in the video below!
