As we get closer to the start of the World’s Most Magical Celebration, we got a sneak peek of the new song featured in the new fireworks spectacular, Disney Enchantment, set to debut at Magic Kingdom, “You Are The Magic!”
- Disney Enchantment, the brand-new nighttime spectacular coming to Magic Kingdom Park as part of The World’s Most Magical Celebration, features fireworks and immersive projection effects that extend from Cinderella Castle down Main Street, U.S.A. taking guests on an emotional journey.
- Grammy winner Philip Lawrence wrote the original song for the show,“You Are the Magic.” The song’s powerful lyrics inspire guests for the journey ahead and touch our hearts and minds. They soar to emotional high points during the climactic moments of the new show as we discover we only have to look within to ignite the magic that was inside us all along.
- Lawrence has certainly pursued his dreams and made them come true, getting his start as a cast member at Walt Disney World Resort, performing in shows like “Festival of the Lion King” and “Tarzan Rocks!” He went on to find success as a songwriter and music producer, receiving 18 Grammy nominations and winning seven Grammy Awards for his collaborations with Bruno Mars on songs like “Uptown Funk” and “24K Magic.”
- Now, he has returned to where the magic began for him, writing “You Are the Magic” but also performing the song in Disney Enchantment along with actor and singer Kayla Alvarez, another former Walt Disney World cast member.
- The complete version of “You Are the Magic” will be heard when Disney Enchantment debuts October 1st at Magic Kingdom Park with the launch of the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration.
