Wishes Fireworks Show at Magic Kingdom Final Showing Set For May 11th 2017 To Make Way For Happily Ever After Show
Say goodbye to Wishes at Magic Kingdom
Final show May 11th, 2017
Magic Kingdom’s fireworks finale show, Wishes, is set for a final showing on May 11th, 2017 after a 14-year run. Since 2003 Wishes has been the finale fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom comparable to Illuminations at Epcot, Fantasmic at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Rivers of Light at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Disney is boasting Happily Ever After to be the greatest night time show in the history of Magic Kingdom. The show will consist of fireworks, projections, lasers and a brand new musical score.
From Disney’s website:
Happily Ever After starts with a dream… and takes you on an unforgettable journey that captures the heart, humor and heroism of many favorite Disney animated films, including:
- Big Hero Six
- The Hunchback of Notre Dame*
- The Incredibles*
- The Lion King*
- The Little Mermaid
- The Princess and the Frog*
- Toy Story*
- Wreck-It Ralph
Disney is encouraging everyone to make sure to check show times before you go as show times are subject to change. Like wishes, and all the other finale shows at the 4 parks, this is an outdoor show so it will be weather permitting.
Another cool part of the new Happily Ever After show is that is will be a “Glow With the Show” show, which is Disney’s newer technology where you can purchase various glow souvenirs that will light up along with the show. These special glow souvenirs include Minnie Mouse Headband, Mickey Mouse Glove and Sorcerer Mickey Wand and all will glow currently with 3 of the 4 finale shows at the parks Wishes (soon to be Happily Ever After), Illuminations and Epcot, and Fantasmic at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
