After almost 13 years of performances, Magic Kingdom’s nighttime fireworks show, Wishes, held its final showing on May 11, 2017.
When it debuted on Oct. 9, 2003, Wishes was the biggest fireworks spectacular ever presented at Magic Kingdom. Narrated by the voice of Jiminy Cricket with help from the Blue Fairy, the display weaved a “story in the sky” for Walt Disney World guests with hundreds of pyrotechnic effects exploding above and around Cinderella Castle.
Wishes’ replacement, debuting May 12, 2017, is Happily Ever After, a new nighttime extravaganza featuring more lasers, lights and projections than any Magic Kingdom show before it. No word if any changes will be made to the seasonal Happy HalloWishes and Holiday Wishes shows.
