Disney had previously announced a new “nighttime spectacular” for the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World called Disney Enchantment. We now have an opening date for the show. Unsurprisingly it’s October 1, 2021, the start of the 50th Anniversary Celebration.
The new show will combine enhanced lighting, Disney music, projection effects and more for a magical new show. This will also be the first time the projection effects more down Main Street, U.S.A.
An original song has been created for the show called “You Are the Magic” by Philip Lawrence.
Here’s what Show Director for Disney Live Entertainment, Mark Renfrow said about the new show:
“Since opening day in 1971, dazzling fireworks shows have provided that perfect exclamation point at the end of a fantastic day at Magic Kingdom Park. From ‘Fantasy in the Sky’ and ‘Wishes’ to holiday spectaculars and ‘Happily Ever After,’ each new show has raised the bar, and the best is yet to come! I can’t wait for everyone to see what we’re creating with ‘Disney Enchantment.’”
Here’s the show description:
“In “Disney Enchantment,” we join dreamers like Tiana, Miguel, Rapunzel, and brothers Ian & Barley from “Onward,” and we set out on an incredible journey with adventurers such as Moana, Raya, and Judy Hopps. Joe Gardner from Disney and Pixar’s “Soul” takes us into “the zone,” where we discover a whimsical world inspired by the style of legendary Disney artist Mary Blair and filled with beloved characters from classic stories like “Beauty and the Beast” and “Alice in Wonderland” to contemporary tales including “Luca” and “Wreck-It Ralph.” Everything builds to a climactic moment, as Tinker Bell takes flight, spreading shimmering gold pixie dust and empowering us all to believe in ourselves and the magic all around us.”
So far it seems that watching the show won’t require upcharges or the Genie app….I’m kidding of course, but waiting for people to be able to pay for “preferred viewing.”
