If you are a fan of Disney’s new 50th anniversary anthem, “The Magic is Calling,” we have great news for you!
As of Friday, October 1, The World’s Most Magical Celebration has officially begun at Walt Disney World Resort. There are tonnes of new offerings, both big and small, at all the Disney Resorts, Magic Kingdom, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, EPCOT, and Disney Springs. We have seen each Park transform with their Beacon of Magic lighting up and shimmering for Guests; new evening spectaculars like Disney Enchantment and Harmonious have debuted, along with the monorail lighting up at night, hundreds of new food items, and so much more.
One of the newest additions has been the all-new anthem “The Magic is Calling” which leads the Magic Kingdom cavalcade and plays throughout all of the Disney Parks. Sung by Journi and created by Disney; and is incredibly catchy. Guests leaving Walt Disney World will surely remember the song from their vacation, and now, it will be a new way to cure those Disney blues. The song is now available to stream! Whether you want to listen to it on YouTube, Apple Music, or Spotify, Disney fans can pick their favorite service to hear the song and jam out while they are at home.
I personally was looking for this song on Spotify while at the gym yesterday, and it was nowhere to be found, so to see it available now is excellent news. The new Disney Enchantment song “You are the Magic “ is not yet available for streaming, but hopefully, we will see it online shortly as the music is equally catchy in its own way!
If you want to take a listen to “The Magic is Calling” to either join in on the 50th celebrations at home or to get yourself excited to visit the Walt Disney World Resort over the next 18 months, you can have a listen in the below video.
Per Disney Parks Blog:
It’s going to be quite the celebration. And what’s a celebration without music? Platinum-selling songwriter and music producer Alana Da Fonseca answered the call to create an original anthem for the 50th Anniversary, collaborating with award-winning composer Emily Bear and singing phenom Journi on “The Magic Is Calling.” Da Fonseca’s pop music style, Bear’s soaring orchestrations and Journi’s magical vocal performance come together to create a song that is all at once nostalgic, inspirational and contemporary.
“It’s such a tremendous honor to write something that celebrates a place that brings so much joy to so many people,” said Da Fonseca. “There’s magic all around us, and when you’re there, you are feeling it at every turn.”
You can start hearing the anthem soon in a variety of ways, calling everyone to join the celebration. “The Magic Is Calling” will connect to all four parks, as different arrangements of the song will be heard when each Walt Disney World theme park icon transforms into a magnificent Beacon of Magic at night, beckoning all to come and celebrate. Cinderella Castle, Spaceship Earth, Hollywood Tower Hotel and the Tree of Life will each shine like never before and come to life on select nights with their own unique EARidescent glow.
