Disney World Premiering New Fireworks Show at Magic Kingdom this Fall


The new fireworks show will feature a Halloween story projected onto the Cinderella Castle, all set to themed music and less fireworks.

A brand-new castle projection/fireworks show will debut at this year’s Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party  on August 16th, replacing the popular HalloWishes fireworks show.


The new show may feature live character cast members on the Cinderella Castle stage.

In the new castle projection show, Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Goofy will be drawn into a haunted house where they will face “dancing skeletons, waltzing ghosts and a whole series of troublemaking Disney villains.”


Happy Halloween!

The yet-to-be-named show “will feature state-of-the-art projection effects, lasers, lighting and dazzling fireworks that come together to tell a not-so-scary story about how anything can happen on Halloween night,” according to Disney.

Disney Parks continues to update their fireworks shows ahead of the huge anniversary celebration planned for 2021.

“Happily Ever After” debuted at the Magic Kingdom in 2017, replacing the long running “Wishes,” and bringing new projection mapping to the forefront of the storyline. The popular HalloWishes leaned heavily on loud fireworks set to themed Halloween music.

While Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party will have a new nighttime fireworks spectacular, other party classics, like the Hocus Pocus Villain Spelltacular, Mickey’s Boo-to-You Halloween Parade, and the 13 free trick-or-treating stations will all return.
