One of the additions for the 50th Anniversary of Walt Disney World was the brand new firework show at Magic Kingdom, Disney Enchantment. It is more than just a firework show. It is a fully immersive experience with projections on Cinderella Castle and Main Street, U.S.A.

A new nighttime spectacular, “Disney Enchantment,” will debut Oct. 1, 2021, at Magic Kingdom Park in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. Created to launch with the “World’s Most Magical Celebration” the show will take guests on a journey filled with adventure, wonder and empowerment, inspiring guests 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.

Part of the 50th Anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort, the new nighttime spectacular “Disney Enchantment” inspires everyone to believe in magic with captivating Disney music, fireworks, enhanced lighting and immersive projection effects that extend – for the first time at The Most Magical Place on Earth – from Cinderella Castle down Main Street, U.S.A.

As you can imagine, it took a whole team to dream up a nighttime spectacular on this scale. One of the artists tasked with picking up his pencil to bring the experience to life was Walt Disney Animation Studios Animation Director, Eric Goldberg, who lent his talents to the creation of several hand-drawn animation moments in the show. Eric adds “Disney Enchantment” to his already impressive portfolio, which includes supervising the animation of everyone’s favorite Genie in “Aladdin” and co-directing “Pocahontas.”

Recently, Eric and his daughter visited Magic Kingdom Park to take in “Disney Enchantment” for the first time. Seeing the spectacular together only amplified the spirit of joy and optimism that comes from experiencing something you love with the people you love. Check out their reactions in the video above.

“Disney Enchantment” is just one of the exciting offerings you can experience as part of The World’s Most Magical Celebration, which began Oct. 1 and is going on for 18 months.
