Disney Will Live Stream TWO New Firework Shows
If you are a Disney fan and you’re not planning to visit Walt Disney World next week, we have some great news for you. You will have the opportunity to watch a live stream of the two newest Disney Parks firework shows from anywhere! Disney announced the following on Disney Parks Blog on Friday:
On Oct. 1, two new nighttime spectaculars – “Harmonious” and “Disney Enchantment” – will debut to help kick off our 50th anniversary festivities during “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” at Walt Disney World Resort. And as a special early 50th surprise, we’re LIVE streaming performances of both ground-breaking shows right here on the Disney Parks Blog!
- Wed, 9/29 – LIVE: “Harmonious” at EPCOT at 9:00 p.m. ET.
- Thurs, 9/30 LIVE: “Disney Enchantment” at Magic Kingdom Park at 10:15 p.m. ET.
Note that Wednesday, September 29 is the final day to watch Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom, which will be ending its run as Disney Enchantment is premiering for the 50th anniversary celebration. Inside the Magic will be live streaming the final showing of Happily Ever After on our social media, so be on the lookout for that.
We can’t wait to see Hamonious at EPCOT and Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom, and we’re so happy that Disney is giving fans all around the world the opportunity to watch these shows from home (or anywhere!).
In today’s Disney Parks Blog post, Disney provided the following information about the new EPCOT nighttime spectacular.
The show, which is a key milestone in the transformation of EPCOT, pays tribute to the stories and songs that unite us all featuring new technical magic that includes special pyrotechnics, moving fountains, special lighting and media.
And as we shared earlier, Disney Live Entertainment and Walt Disney Imagineering have created a transformative experience with “Harmonious” that invites you to travel the globe through new interpretations of classic Disney songs as you’ve never heard them before. The songs are reimagined in more than a dozen languages by a diverse group of 240 artists from around the world.
“Harmonious” is a unique experience that could only happen at EPCOT, a place dedicated to possibility, wonder and global community.
About Disney Enchantment
Disney also shared the followign about Disney Enchantment:
In “Disney Enchantment,” you’re inspired to believe in magic, with captivating Disney music, enhanced lighting, and immersive projection effects that extend – for the first time – from Cinderella Castle down Main Street, U.S.A. The evening extravaganza features stunning fireworks as well as an emotional original song, entitled “You Are the Magic,” by eight-time GRAMMY-winner and former Walt Disney World cast member Philip Lawrence.
This one-of-a-kind show features characters, moments, and music from dozens of Disney and Pixar animated films. It takes you beyond the ordinary to a land of magic, where we’re swept up in a world of wonder filled with friendship, love and fun. Through it all, we’ll discover we only have to look within to find the power to believe and make dreams come true, because the magic was inside us all along!
As a reminder, both Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom and Harmonious at EPCOT are set to debut on October 1, the kickoff date for The World’s Most Magical Celebration, Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary. Disney is live streaming Disney Enchantment one day early on September 30, but the firework show will not begin that night until after Magic Kingdom closes for the day. However, Harmonious at EPCOT will be shown on September 29 at 9 p.m., the same time EPCOT closes for the day, so if you are planning on visiting EPCOT on September 29, you could actually have the chance to see Harmonious in person two days before its official debut date.
Keep in mind that you need both a valid theme park reservation and valid admission in order to enter the Disney Parks.
We love Disney fireworks, and we can’t wait for the world to see these epic new shows coming to Walt Disney World Resort next week!
