Disney’s “Wishes” Lights the Night with Color and Sound
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — The power of a wish combines with magical moments from cherished Disney films and dazzling pyrotechnic effects to create “Wishes,” the biggest, boldest fireworks show ever presented for Magic Kingdom guests at Walt Disney World Resort.
Narrated by Jiminy Cricket, who memorably served as Pinocchio’s conscience in Disney’s animated masterpiece, the dramatic story-in-the-sky spectacular tells a thrilling, heart-tugging story about making a wish come true.
“I bet a lot of you folks don’t believe that — about a wish coming true, do ya?” Jiminy says as the 12-minute spectacle begins. “Well, I didn’t either. Of course, I’m just a cricket, but let me tell ya what changed my mind. Ya see, the most fantastic, magical things can happen — and it all starts with a wish!”
At several times the size of “Fantasy in the Sky,” Magic Kingdom’s previous fireworks show, “Wishes” takes guests through treasured tales of adventure and romance from classic Disney films, accompanied by brilliant bursts of color and light above — and around — Cinderella Castle. Guests will discover excellent viewing locations all throughout the theme park.
