Disney has finally revealed some new information on Disney Enchantment, the upcoming fireworks show that will debut October 1, 2021 at the Magic Kingdom. Disney Enchantment is replacing Happily Ever After, but in many ways will carry on a similar tone by focusing on modern Disney films.
Let’s take a look at Disney’s new description for Disney Enchantment.
“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.”
Can we all agree that Tinker Bell’s flight is one of the best parts of any Magic Kingdom fireworks show? It’s great to see she’s sticking around.
However, you may be disappointed if you were hoping for a show that celebrates Walt Disney World’s history in honor of the 50th anniversary. Instead of an anniversary show, Disney Enchantment very much sounds like Happily Ever After 2.0. This also sounds like a show that can serve as the permanent replacement once the anniversary celebrations have ended.
We’re most excited for the new projections on Main Street USA. These new projections will hopefully give crowds on Main Street USA a more complete view. One of the weaknesses of Happily Ever After was how it required guests to be in the hub to see the projections and have a full experience.
Disney Enchantment will debut to guests on October 1, 2021.
