Wishes Nighttime Spectacular Entertainment at Magic Kingdom

While the Magic Kingdom may be best known for its daytime attractions and rides, there’s also plenty of entertainment to be had once the rides close down for the day.

The Wishes Nighttime Spectacular is the park’s biggest fireworks show and always attracts large crowds of children and adults alike.

The seasonal show is best viewed from the front of Cinderella’s castle or from Main Street USA.

At night, the castle is illuminated with colored lighting and provides an excellent backdrop for the show.

The schedule for the Wishes Nighttime Spectacular varies, but it is usually held at 10 pm.

Jiminy Cricket hosts the show, he is best known for his role in Disney’s Pinocchio.

Disney Characters Make Wishes

Together with the Blue Fairy, the show is based around the various wishes of Disney characters represented through lighting, music, and fireworks.

The Blue Fairy can be heard saying, “When stars are born, they possess a gift or two.

One of them is this: they have the power to make a wish come true".

Throughout the show, ‘shooting star’ fireworks can be seen above Cinderella’s castle.

The castle itself is also a large part of the show and changes color as each segment of the main story passes. 

After an initial introduction from Jiminy Cricket and wishes from characters like Aladdin, Snow White and Ariel, the show goes into a musical interlude.

Choreographed Fireworks

At this time, you’ll be treated to choreographed fireworks of all different shapes and colors. 

Eventually, the instrumental dies down and Jiminy Cricket makes a return to introduce a new set of wishes. 

This part of the show consists of clips from different Disney themes accompanied by primarily red and white fireworks.

Near the end of the segment, Jiminy reminds everyone to “let your conscious be your guide”.

As Jiminy’s voice fades, the show turns to the side of the villains and you will see Cinderella’s castle turn red. 

You will also hear the Evil Queen from Snow White asking for her wish to be granted.

However, the Queen’s time in the spotlight is short lived as good triumphs over evil and the Blue Fairy returns and the red lights fade from Cinderella’s castle.

‘Wishes’ and ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’

The show ends with a mix of the song ‘Wishes’ and ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ as the final set of fireworks illuminates the night sky in a beautiful finale. 

The Wishes Nighttime Spectacular is a moving show that will take you on a trip down memory lane with numerous references to Disney classics like Snow White, Cinderella and Pinocchio. 

All the fireworks are fired off in sync with the music and Jiminy Cricket proves to be an excellent guide through the show.

On calm days, Tinkerbell often makes a short appearance to the delight of the crowds.

This special fireworks show is held on a seasonal basis and a schedule for it can be found on Disney World’s website or through guest services at the park itself.
