For those fans of Wishes, the long running fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom, don't worry it will be returning at the end of the summer, but in the meantime this new show is definitely worth your time.
Summer Nightastic! Fireworks Spectacular
The newest fireworks show to grace the Magic Kingdom is quite impressive to say the least. Disney World is known for their fireworks, so the bar is set high whenever they set out to create a new fireworks display.
Creating a fireworks display utilizing more perimeter fireworks was one of the goals for the show. While viewing it, you feel more engaged as the fireworks are launched from multiple locations in the Magic Kingdom.
For those fans of Disney World tradition, you will still find Tinker Bell making her appearance as she "flies" from Cinderella Castle over to Tomorrowland.
- The summer fireworks are accompanied by a whimsical score of classic Disney tunes and theme music from the hit film “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.”
- The Fairy Godmother from “Cinderella” and other famous fairies star in the fireworks spectacular.
- The fireworks perimeter around Magic Kingdom will expand by 25 percent for the summer show. No matter where you are in the park, you’ll be surrounded by the spectacle.
- Pirate Alert: Captain Hook and his band of buccaneers burst onto the scene to seize the park’s Cinderella Castle. Disney’s creative entertainment team designed fireworks that tell the story, including a skull-and-crossbones display and other visual effects convincing enough to make you believe the castle is under siege.
Sometimes Change Is Good
As a big fan of Wishes I was skeptical about whether I would like this new show, but I have to say that I may even like it better than the incredible Magic Kingdom hallmark.
The addition of the perimeter fireworks just creates a sense that you are pulled into the action of the story as it unfolds. This really makes a difference and greatly enhances the experience. Photographs and YouTube videos do not do this justice. It is sometime that you need to experience in person to get the full effect.
If you are able to get to Disney World before August 14th make sure that you catch the Summer Nightastic! Fireworks Spectacular.
