Main Street, U.S.A., is about to be more shining, shimmering, splendid than ever before! Disney has officially confirmed that, for the first time ever, Magic Kingdom will be getting projections on the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A., as part of the all-new nighttime spectacular coming for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary, Disney Enchantment.
Disney officially confirmed the all-new projections in an announcement on Disney Parks Blog on Tuesday:
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.

If you are a huge Disney Parks fan and you follow Disney Park news, the idea of projections on Main Street, U.S.A., likely sounds pretty familiar to you. That’s because it is! Disney fans are familiar with projections on the buildings of Main Street, U.S.A., at Disneyland Park.
Over on the west coast, the Disneyland Resort fireworks shows nowadays include immersive projections on several Park landmarks, including Main Street, U.S.A., “it’s a small world,” the Matterhorn, and of course Sleeping Beauty Castle. Many fans love switching up their go-to firework viewing spot in order to see the various projections. Disneyland Forever, introduced for Disneyland Resort’s 60th anniversary in 2015, brought to life beloved Disney stories, and the projections were part of that.
Now that Magic Kingdom is introducing projections to Main Street, U.S.A., as part of the new firework show coming for the 50th anniversary, it looks like fireworks at Walt Disney World are going to really level up. If you love the projection mapping on Cinderella Castle during Happily Ever After, we suspect that projections on Main Street, U.S.A., will elevate your firework viewing experience that much more.
Disney hasn’t provided any other details pertaining to the new projections at Magic Kingdom, but we will update our website as soon as more information is released.
