"Wishes" at the Magic Kingdom

Florida Guide > Magic Kingdom

We let the children have a restful morning and set off for the Magic Kingdom at around lunchtime. We were determined that the little ones would stay awake for the “Wishes” spectacular firework display that evening.

It was a lovely day to be in the parks, the sun was shining, the sky was so blue that it seemed unreal, and it was not too hot.

We spent some time wandering around browsing in the gift shops, and riding on some of the attractions……and “it’s a small world after all” is still going round in my head! The first one to sing it had to buy the ice creams…. guess what, yep it was me!

Soon the time arrived for the fireworks to start, we found a good place to watch in the large area just in front of Cinderella’s Castle, and sat down to wait. The sky by this time had deepened to a midnight blue, and the air was calm. The show was about to start. The lights in the Magic kingdom went down, the music started……it was time to see the firework spectacular called “Wishes”.

It is a story in the sky, about wishes coming true and is told by Jiminy cricket

It starts by Jiminy saying “I bet a lot of you don’t believe about a wish coming true do you? Well…I didn’t either, but let me tell you what changed my mind. You see, the most wonderful magical things happen, you just have to make a wish……”

The display lasts for 12 minutes, and is just superb, with colours and lights and sounds that only Disney could produce, above and around Cinderella Castle. It is the biggest display the Magic Kingdom has ever presented. Not only fireworks but coloured images were projected onto the castle, famous Disney songs we all know and love were played and voices from some of the famous characters also feature. Tinker Bell also flies down from the top of the castle, much to the delight of the girls.

The crowd were amazed, the atmosphere was fantastic and it made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck! A group of teenagers next to us had tears in their eyes.

This is Disney magic at its best, and shows that wishes can come true if you believe then with all your heart.

When it was over a tremendous applause came from the crowd. It is something we will never forget and the look on the children’s faces was just magic.

Do not miss it as it is a perfect end to the day, and leaves a lovely warm feeling inside.
