Photos: Close-up on new ‘Disney Enchantment’ fireworks spectacular

With the beginning of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary celebration came a brand new nighttime spectacular firework show at Magic Kingdom, “Disney Enchantment.” This show replaces “Happily Ever After” and expands the projection mapping element down Main Street, U.S.A. Megan Boscacci, @themegdalorian on Instagram, snapped this collection of incredible shots of the new show.

“Disney Enchantment” is a 15-minute-long nighttime spectacular that features fireworks, lasers, projection mapping, an original song and musical selections from Disney classics. This show happens at the Magic Kingdom most nights, weather permitting and if a special nighttime event isn’t happening.

Over the years, Disney has gotten incredibly good at projection mapping. Shows have evolved from “The Magic, The Memories and You” and “Celebrate the Magic.” As seen above, the dynamic colors and clarity of the projections is a testament to Disney’s hard work.

When you combine the projection mapping with well-timed fireworks, it can create a show that envelops the space around you.

“Disney Enchantment” has songs and clips from numerous Disney and Pixar films, like “The Princess and the Frog,” “Coco,” “Tangled,” “Moana,” “Zootopia,” “Soul,” and more. Want to learn more? Listen to this interview with the Senior Music Producer for the show.

Boscacci also made an Instagram Reel showcasing her spot and some of the show. Did you know that a limited quantity of guests are allowed to go up on the Main Street, U.S.A. Train Station for a unique viewing area? This spot is first come, first served, so Boscacci got in line at 6:45 p.m. for the 8 p.m. show.

Outside of Disney Enchantment, Cinderella Castle also becomes a Beacon of Magic at night. Each of the four Walt Disney World Resort theme parks have their park icon illuminate at night in celebration of the 50th anniversary. Magic Kingdom lights up Cinderella Castle, Epcot lights up Spaceship Earth, Disney’s Hollywood Studios lights up the Tower of Terror, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom lights up the Tree of Life.

  1. Ok it’s pretty. But the lackluster-and as a professional musician, I’m being kind here-soundtrack does absolutely NOTHING for me when you compare it to the kaleidoscope of emotions I felt every single time I watched Happily Ever after. Nope. I’ll be enjoying the short wait times at attractions during this show. Until they bring HEA back, or something equally engaging.
