To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World kicking off on October 1, Disney Parks Blog announced today that two of their new nighttime spectaculars will be LIVE streamed next week.
Calling it “a special early 50th surprise,” Disney will LIVE stream “Harmonious” from EPCOT on Wednesday, September 29 at 9:00 pm ET, and Magic Kingdom Park’s “Disney Enchantment” at 10:15 pm ET on Thursday, September 30.
Thomas Smith, Editorial Content Director for Disney Parks, posted the exciting news on Disney Parks Blog, inviting Disney fans to see the long-awaited and highly-anticipated new nighttime shows via LIVE stream before they officially debut to Park Guests on October 1:
Beginning at 9:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, join us to see “Harmonious” at EPCOT, one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever created for a Disney park. 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.
On the night of September 30, “Disney Enchantment” will be LIVE streamed from Magic Kingdom Park, along with what Smith describes as “a special celebratory moment”….
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!
Disney Parks Blog also shared a new, behind-the-scenes sneak peek at the making of “Disney Enchantment,” as the show’s creators put the final touches on Magic Kingdom Park’s new nighttime spectacular:
