Guest Opinion Mixed Regarding Magic Kingdom Fireworks Announcement
Some fans really, really want their own “Happily Ever After” as opposed to a dose of “Disney Enchantment”!
Is it a good thing when you see a parallel between a Disney World fireworks story and the kind of fireworks going on in the Indy 5 realm? Eh.
Earlier this month, the director of the fifth Indiana Jones movie tweeted with fans concerned about Indy’s legacy:
Maybe, just maybe, I won't let you down. I cherish old Hollywood pictures. Give me a little air to make the film. Then make your judgements, okay?

Mangold posted, “Maybe, just maybe, I won’t let you down. I cherish old Hollywood pictures. Give me a little air to make the film. Then make your judgments, okay?”
One has to believe that the engineers who pulled together the new fireworks show, “Disney Enchantment” might be thinking along the same lines.
BTW: We covered the official fireworks announcement earlier today:

On Disney Parks Blog, Jeremy Schoolfield explained the new nighttime attraction at WDW:

A new nighttime spectacular, “Disney Enchantment,” will help kick off the 50th anniversary festivities when it debuts Oct. 1 at Magic Kingdom Park. Created to launch with “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” this evening extravaganza will take you on a journey filled with adventure, wonder and empowerment. Inspiring everyone to believe in magic, “Disney Enchantment” will feature music, enhanced lighting, stunning fireworks and, for the first time, immersive projection effects that extend from Cinderella Castle down Main Street, U.S.A.”
Fans, who are simply getting used to the idea of seeing fireworks held a mixed bag of reactions.
One of the first replies to the above tweet was (of course):
Cool, now can you please bring back the Dreamfinder?”
And that was followed by:
- Does this mean happily ever after is not going to be shown after the 1st? Or will both be shown like you have done in the past.
- So excited for this!!!!
- Wishes > Happily Ever After….. js
- Sounds okay for 15 minutes at night, but I’d rather have live entertainment for the 14 hours the Park is open. Bring them back you cowards.
Meanwhile, the first replies to the Disney Parks version of the announcement seemed a bit more positive:
Can’t wait!! pic.twitter.com/RYVFePIm66

However, others added:
- I can’t wait!!! You will celebrate de 50th anniversary and I will go to celebrate my 40th birthday
- Can’t wait! I first went to the Magic Kingdom on 7/7/1972. I’ll be back on that day in 2022. 50 years… time flies when you’re having fun!
- I’m sure there will be new cupcakes too! Trumpeted with all the marketing of a new attraction!
Anyway, you get the picture. But it makes sense to wait to see what the Imagineers have in store for us in October, no?
