Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams
If you’re anything like me, something comes over you when you are walking down Main Street USA. You wonder if there is anything that tops the feeling you get when you catch your first glimpse of Cinderella Castle. I’ve always thought that was it. That was what it felt like to have “Disney goosebumps”. That was…until I first saw Disney’s Wishes fireworks show.
The biggest fireworks show ever to take place at the Magic Kingdom, it takes place in front of Cinderella Castle most nights of the week. It’s a blend of fireworks, music and special effects all with the Castle at center stage. The Blue Fairy begins the show by reminding us how powerful wishes can be. This works into the show’s theme song, a musical version of the “Starlight, Starbright”…sung by a child (more goosebumps).
Jiminy Cricket has never believed in wishes, but that has changed. He goes on tell you that if you believe in wishes, magical things can happen. As you are thinking this over, you will literally see Tinkerbell fly overhead from the very top of the Castle. Process that. A waving Tinkerbell will fly through the air, right over you. Right then and there, you will be inspired to wish for something, anything, no matter how big or small. I guarantee it.
Various Disney characters (such as Cinderella, Pinocchio, Aladdin, Peter Pan and more) will share with you what they wish for while familiar Disney songs are heard in the background. Disney Villians try unsuccessfully to take over the show and the Blue Fairy returns in the end to encourage us to “always believe in our wishes”. As if the rest of the show didn’t tug at your heartstrings, it ends with the amazing Disney song, “When You Wish Upon a Star”. It leaves even the biggest skeptic feeling completely engulfed in the magic of Disney…and leaves softies like me sniffling into my sleeves.
This show is just one of the many things that makes a Disney Vacation so amazing. If you have been thinking about visiting, contact me for a free quote and we will get you there to experience the magic for yourself.
