VIDEOS: CHANGES Have Been Made to the Magic Kingdom Fireworks

🚨 RED ALERT. 🚨 The Magic Kingdom fireworks have CHANGED.


Now don’t get too excited. No, Happily Ever After isn’t back, and no, Wishes has not made its return to Magic Kingdom. The Most Magical Place on Earth is still showing off its 50th Anniversary Disney Enchantment fireworks, but those fireworks now feature a new segment that might just tug at your heartstrings!

We stopped by Magic Kingdom tonight to watch the fireworks and check out the changes. Unfortunately, the fireworks were delayed for a little bit due to weather. This is pretty common, as storms can pop up quickly in Orlando. Luckily, bad weather usually disappears just as quickly, so the fireworks were able to run just 15 minutes later than planned.


Once the show got started, we saw that it has CHANGED! A NEW section has now been added to the show as a sort-of intro tag. It plays before the regular Enchantment fireworks officially begin.

The new intro honors Disney World’s 50th Anniversary by taking a look at some of the individuals who made it all possible — Walt and Roy Disney. You’ll actually see videos and photos of Walt and Roy projected onto Cinderella Castle as part of this new segment.

Can you see them?

The footage projected is archival footage of Walt, Roy, presentations about the Florida Project, surveys taken of the areas of Central Florida that would eventually become Disney World, and more.

New segment added

The new segment focuses on Disney World’s history and how it came to be before the Enchantment show dives further into the world of Disney’s movies. From what we saw, these projections of Walt, Roy, and Disney World history are located mainly within the 50th Anniversary crest that sits at the center of the front of the Castle, along with some other areas on the Castle itself.

You’ll have to get close!

If you want a good view of these projections, you’re going to want to grab your spot early so you can be close to the castle and with a straight-on view of it. Most of the Disney Enchantment show also has projections down Main Street, U.S.A., but there weren’t additional projections there for this new segment — they were only on Cinderella Castle.

Changes to Enchantment fireworks

This is what we experienced tonight. We expect the segment will be incorporated into future Enchantment shows as well, but, of course, things are subject to change. Just be sure to see what the situation is like ahead of your trip.
