With tomorrow marking the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World, the resort held a special preview of the new nighttime spectacular, Disney Enchantment, at Magic Kingdom.
About “Disney Enchantment”
- The new nighttime spectacular inspires everyone to believe in magic, with Disney music, enhanced lighting, immersive projection effects that extend for the first time at Magic Kingdom down Main Street, U.S.A., and an original song, “You Are the Magic,” by seven-time Grammy-winner Philip Lawrence.
- 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.
