Theme Park News


This summer has been extremely busy at Walt Disney World. With the Limited Time Magic “Monstrous Summer” events and the Orlando theme park’s usual summer happenings taking over the parks you may not have heard about the new summer version of the digital projection castle show Celebrate The Magic at Magic Kingdom ®. If you haven’t you should really take a moment to check it out. It’s spectacular!

Like the previous castle projection show, ‘The Magic, The Memories and You!’ Celebrate The Magic will make seasonal changes to segments of the show throughout the year. The new summer version of the show, which is currently on display now is similar to last year’s Phineas & Ferb segment but includes popular Disney ® characters in summertime themes like Lilo and Stitch visiting the beach, Ariel and Sebastian diving “Under the Sea,” and Goofy enjoying some summer adventures with friends and family.

Celebrate The Magic begins as Tinker Bell introduces the show as she appears flying over the castle’s turrets. The castle is then transformed into a paper canvas as Walt Disney appears sketching Mickey Mouse in his famous Steamboat Willie appearance. The projection show goes on to feature a kaleidoscope of Disney ® images of Mickey, Donald Duck and Goofy followed by short clips from Cinderella, Pinnocchio and The Princess and the Frog. The collage continues with longer scenes from Disney films, including Alice in Wonderland, Dumbo, Wreck – It Ralph, The Lion King, Tarzan, The Jungle Book, Toy Story, Pirates of the Caribbean, Brave and many more Disney ® classics. During the montage Walt Disney appears again reciting one of his most famous quotes, “I only hope that we never lose sight of one thing – that it was all started by a mouse.” The show is then followed by a spectacular synchronized fireworks display.

Celebrate the Magic is truly one of the most colorful nighttime shows Walt Disney World ® has ever put on. Your senses will be bombarded with bright hues of reds, blues, purples, yellows, oranges and greens as the castle explodes with magic. In fact, Cinderella Castle is hardly recognizable as the images portrayed glow and shimmer under the night sky. And just when you think the show can’t get anymore phenomenal, the night sky explodes with fireworks that are just as bright and magnificent as the show.

If you haven’t already seen Celebrate the Magic make sure you stick around Magic Kingdom ® this summer to do so. It’s worth it! Stay tuned for more details about Celebrate the Magic’s seasonal changes. Next up is the Disney ® villains for Halloween!
