Disney has been at the front of the nighttime spectacular game for decades and the two new shows that debuted for the 50th prove why. At Magic Kingdom, Disney Enchantment inspires guests to find the magic within each of us with fireworks, projections on Cinderella Castle and all the way down Main Street, U.S.A., classic Disney music, and an original song entitled “You Are the Magic.”
If you’re lucky enough to catch the Electrical Water Pageant floating down the Seven Seas Lagoon on your way out of the park, you can catch a new 50th-anniversary segment in the show.
EPCOT’s new nighttime show, Harmonious, takes place on the World Showcase Lagoon and uses a collection of massive floating showpieces to display the pyrotechnics, colorful projections, and lasers. The show is set to songs performed by artists from around the globe in more than a dozen languages, signifying the show’s message that our differences should be celebrated and that we are all more alike than we are different.
If you want to guarantee a good viewing spot for either of the new nighttime shows, Disney World is offering dessert parties at Magic Kingdom and dinner packages at Epcot that get you into a reserved viewing area. Reservations are highly recommended and can be made on Disney World’s website.
