Magic Kingdom – Special ‘Celebrate America’ Fireworks Over the Castle!

Expect 15 minutes of impressive – and LOUD – pyrotechnics rising not just above the Cinderella Castle, but all around the park. Independence Day is one of the few fireworks displays, along with the Halloween and Christmas versions, that utilize the perimeter bursts, making it seem like the fireworks are all around you.

As you may expect, the fireworks display is accompanied by a rousing patriotic soundtrack that is designed to speak to the soul of America.

DJ Dance Parties!
Boogie down with 2 uniquely themed dance parties at Magic Kingdom park:

  • Independence Day Party in Frontierland: Mosey on over to Frontierland for a star-spangled celebration featuring some favorite country tunes.
  • Independence Day Party in Tomorrowland:Moonwalk your way to Rockettower Plaza Stage in Tomorrowland for a rockin’ revelry featuring a live DJ and terrestrial tunes.

Goodbye to ‘Wishes’ Fireworks at the Magic Kingdom!

Disney has the best fireworks shows in the world!

Wishes fireworks over the Cinderella Catsle

Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight,
I wish I may, I wish I might,
I wish I might have my wish tonight.

 

After 14 years, the ‘Wishes’ Nighttime Fireworks Spectacular at the Magic Kingdom will say goodbye tonight (May 11, 2017) with the very last performance.

happily

The new fireworks show!

A new show called ‘Happily Ever After’ begins Friday night, May 12th, 2017.

‘Happily Ever After’ captures the heart, humor, and emotions of Disney films through awe-inspiring fireworks, state of the art projections, and brilliant lasers.

Disney Parks Blog will be live steaming the event:  Live Stream from the Magic Kingdom.

Make a wish....

Always make a wish when Tinkerbell leaps off the Cinderella Castle and glides over Fantasyland!

We saw – or heard – the Wishes fireworks show every single day while working for Disney during our year-long DCP program at Disney World.

wishes

We cried along with our friends watching Wishes fireworks on the very last night of our program!

***

Ever wonder just what do all those firework shows at Disney World cost????

Wishes at the Magic Kingdom!

‘Wishes’ over the Magic Kingdom!

Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida is the highest consumer of fireworks in the world.

Disney does not disclose the cost of fireworks, but just the nightly – and sometimes twice a night – ‘Wishes’ fireworks show at the Magic Kingdom costs anywhere from $41,000-$55,000 a night. (The special New Year’s Eve fireworks at MK are estimated to cost over $100,000!)  That means it costs at least $15 million a year for Magic Kingdom fireworks alone.

Disney World puts on about 2,500 firework shows a year at three of their parks (Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Hollywood Studios). No fireworks displays are ever used at Animal Kingdom – it would scare the animals!  And, there are no fireworks shows at Disney Springs.

If you want to assume that Illuminations at Epcot and Fantasmic! at Hollywood Studios are slightly less, maybe half the cost, that comes out to at least $30 million a year for them. This would not include any special fireworks displays that happen for 4th of July, or Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party, Villains in the Sky at Hollywood Studios, Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party, nor the daytime fireworks that are a part of most of the stage shows performed in front of the Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom.

Rough, conservative estimate for WDW fireworks – $45 – $50 million dollars annually.

It seems like everytime Disney changes or expands the fireowrks show, the parking fees go up!

It seems like every time Disney changes or expands the fireworks show, the parking fees go up!

Rumor has it that Disney uses the revenue from all their parking lots (currently $20/day) to help cover the cost of the fireworks. So, when you pay for parking, you’re really paying for the evening’s fireworks show. Nice!  (Be sure to stay for the fireworks and not leave early!!)

Expect parking fees to go up soon with the new fireworks show launching this week!  🙂

Disney Bounding as Princess Moana and Friends

Fun ideas to Disney Bound as Moana.

Disney Bounding: When Disney fans dress up as contemporary versions of their favorite characters and go to the theme parks.
**************************************
Disney Bounding is a way of dressing up as your favorite character using inspired color palettes, accessories, and clothing styles to look like the character, without actually being in a Disney costume. You simply use items from your own wardrobe to pull together a terrific look.

moana4

Coral and tan with seashell accents.

Princess Moana is one of the easiest Disney princesses to Disney Bound to!  Her colors are beautiful – coral and tan.

You can also Disney Bound as other characters in the movie like Maui:

The ‘Rock’ to star in Disney’s new Jungle Cruise Movie!

rock jungle cruise

Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson riding on the Jungle Cruise this morning!

April 10, 2017:  From Dwayne Johnson’s Instagram account

Surprise! Once I committed to our Disney partners to make the movie based off the JUNGLE CRUISE ride, I wanted to dive head first into the research.

So, I headed to Walt Disney World and surprised tourists by commandeering the JUNGLE CRUISE boat.

It was a GREAT day on the river. Learned a lot… for example, it takes approximately 12.6 minutes for all the passengers to get over the shock of me jumping on the boat and thinking I’m a DJ look-a-like. One passenger even said, “Oh the real Rock is much smaller than this guy”. I threw his ass off the boat.

Jokes aside (and yes, with me as the Cruise Skipper there will be an abundance of puns) this is such an amazing, fantastical and cool world to build out. Best part about this surprise research day was knowing how FUN of an experience we’re gonna work hard to create for families around the world. That’s the part that gets my excited the most.

The movie. The ride. The experience.

It’s the cruise of a lifetime. And trust me, you’ll want me as your Skipper. Just don’t forget to bring the Skipper’s beer.

Next step… we find our visionary director.

(I think the lady to my right is snapping a pic of my bootaaaay)

******

As announced previously here, Dwayne “The Rock’ Johnson will star in Disney’s new Jungle Cruise movie, based on the classic Disneyland ride.  Johnson’s involvement once again puts the Jungle Cruise boat back into the water after a multiyear dry-dock phase.

Production begins Spring 2018.

Disney has been trying to mount a movie based on the popular ride since at least 2004, during the years of the multi-billion dollar success of ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean’ movies.

The studio last tried to develop the project as a starring vehicle for Tom Hanks and Tim Allen in early 2011.

Following the success of “The Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, Disney has pushed hard to find ways to use its various brand-name theme park attractions as a basis for feature films. A “Haunted Mansion” pic is currently in development with Ryan Gosling attached to star; an earlier “Haunted Mansion” film with Eddie Murphy did not succeed at the box office.

The Jungle Cruise is one of the Disneyland’s original rides and has a retro adventure vibe, transporting guests into African settings such as the Nile River and Congo River, encountering rhinos and hippos and headhunters along the way. There’s also an Amazon River section featuring piranhas and snakes.

While the Hanks-Allen iteration was to have been set in modern times, the new take brings the project back to its’ period roots with the intent to harken the new movie to classic jungle adventure movies such as ‘The African Queen’, the 1951 classic starring Humphrey Bogart and Katharine Hepburn that was one of the original inspirations for the ride.

Johnson is pumped to take a ride down the river: “[Disney production president] Sean Bailey and Disney have been awesome partners and now the fun part begins. I’m fired up about this one. Here we go.”

The actor is already the lead voice in Moana’, the animated blockbuster movie released last November. (Latest box office numbers:  $635,463,984 worldwide as of March 2017, not including merchandise or DVD/Blu-Ray sales.)

Party Tip:  The MVMCP party starts at 7pm, but Disney let’s ticketed guests in for the party starting at 4pm.  Plan on going to the Magic Kingdom early (park by 3:30pm) and don’t forget to wear your Christmas sweater!

Even if it’s warm during the day, it can get very chilly in the park after the sun goes down!!!  Stash a jacket in a locker as you enter the park.  You’ll need it by midnight!

Wondering about the crowds, especially in December???  Well, they are miserable the last 2 weeks in December, BUT wonderful the first two weeks in December!

The 2.5 weeks between Thanksgiving and December 15th are a relatively low crowd period at the Magic Kingdom and Disney World in general.  Enjoy!

Special parade, snow falling on Main Street USA, Castle Dream Lights, free cookies and cocoa...all of it wonderful!!!

MVMCP 2016: Special Christmas nightime parade  with snow falling on Main Street USA, the Cinderella Castle Dream Lights turned on, holiday music playing, free cookies and cocoa for all guests…all of it is wonderful to see!!!
