The power of wishes come together with some magical moments from cherished Disney films, add some dazzling pyrotechnic effects and the result is "Wishes", The biggest and boldest fireworks show ever presented for Magic Kingdom guests at Walt Disney World Resort.

Narrated by Jiminy Cricket, who memorably served as Pinocchio's conscience in Disney's animated masterpiece, the dramatic story-in-the-sky spectacular tells a thrilling, heart-tugging story about making a wish come true.

Quote from Jiminy Cricket in the show: "I bet a lot of you folks don't believe that -- about a wish coming true, do ya? Well, I didn't either. Of course, I'm just a cricket, but let me tell ya what changed my mind. Ya see, the most fantastic, magical things can happen -- and it all starts with a wish!"

At several times the size of "Fantasy in the Sky", Magic Kingdom's previous fireworks show, "Wishes" takes guests through treasured tales of adventure and romance from classic Disney films, accompanied by brilliant bursts of color and light above -- and around -- Cinderella Castle. Guests will discover excellent viewing locations all throughout the theme park.

The warmly emotional show is a fairy-tale ending to each magical Disney day. "Wishes" replaces "Fantasy in the Sky," which premiered in the 1970s, one fondly remembered element remains -- a certain mischievous pixie who flies high above Magic Kingdom to demonstrate the power of believing in a wish.


Magic Kingdom comes alive with the bright lights in this dazzingly nigthtime parade. Themed floats come alive with fiber optics of all colours. This Marvel of Disney World features Mickey Mouse and all his friends as well as over half a million lights! (Note: This parade is not daily.)

Magic Kingdom Welcome
In front of the Mickey Floral at the Train Station

When the steam train whistle blows early in the morning at the Walt Disney World Magic Kingdom, it signals the beginning of a new theme park experience with lots of character. Actually, make that lots of characters.
Every day, Mickey Mouse, Donald, Goofy and the rest of the Disney character gang arrive at the Main Street, U.S.A. station aboard the Walt Disney World Railroad minutes before the Magic Kingdom opens, greeting early-arriving guests to a theme park full of character fun like never before. Steps inside the gates, Town Square becomes a joyous scene of cherished Disney characters signing autographs, posing for photos and making guests feel welcome. And throughout the day, more characters meet and mingle with Magic Kingdom guests than ever before.

"Our guests want to see characters," says Rich Taylor, vice president, Walt Disney Entertaining and Costuming. "Guests -- young and old -- tell us that a special kind of magic happens when they see our Disney characters. In our theme park attractions, we relive the fantasy stories. Imagine how much richer and entertaining the experience if, say, you arrive at the Mad Tea Party . . . and the Mad Hatter himself is there to greet you."
