As the premiere of “Disney Enchantment” at Magic Kingdom inching closer, the Walt Disney World Resort issued another update today for local residents who reside near the magical theme park. Testing of the fireworks will light the sky both late tonight and Saturday.
“Around Magic Kingdom Park tonight (Sept. 23) and Saturday night (Sept. 25), some of our neighbors may hear the sound of fireworks a little later than normal, between 11:30 PM and 1 AM. We will do our best to keep noise at a minimum, and thank our neighbors and Guests for their understanding,” according to a post this afternoon on the Walt Disney World Cast and Community Facebook page.
The splendor the Magic Kingdom’s current nighttime spectacular, “Happily Ever After” continues to draw huge crowds for its final performances. The last show will close the evening on Wednesday for its final run.
Though it is unclear which fireworks will be tested tonight, the Magic Kingdom kicks off the 50th anniversary celebration with its all new fireworks extravanganza, “Disney Enchantment,” on October 1st. Perhaps residents may even hear bits of the new original song for the show.
Aside from incredible pyrotechnics, Magic Kingdom guests can also expect a wild sensory experience during the new fireworks show. The projections that truly set “Happily Ever After” apart from its predecessors will now paint much more than Cinderella Castle. Concept art shows the whimsical effect streaming down the buildings of Main Street U.S.A.
Gold hues are sure to be part of the display as the metallic color features prominently in all of the iconography for the anniversary, dubbed “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.” With merchandise and artwork speckled throughout the resort already, we cannot wait to see what next Friday brings to being the celebration for such an important milestone.
