Disney Enchantment

A new nighttime spectacular, “Disney Enchantment,” will help kick off the 50th anniversary festivities when it debuts Oct. 1 at Magic Kingdom Park. Created to launch with “The World’s Most Magical Celebration,” this evening extravaganza will take guests on a journey filled with adventure, wonder and empowerment. Inspiring everyone 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.


Joining “Disney Enchantment” on Oct. 1 will be “Harmonious” at EPCOT, one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever created for a Disney park. This new show will bring the globe together at World Showcase Lagoon in a celebration of Disney music that inspires people worldwide. It’s a grand, powerful tribute to the unifying power of story and song, embracing new technical magic that incorporates pyrotechnics, fountains, lighting and media in new ways. “Harmonious” will feature new interpretations of classic Disney songs, reimagined in more than a dozen languages by a diverse group of 240 artists from around the world.

October 1, 2021 will be the official start of “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” for Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary. Along with these two nighttime spectaculars opening this day, this will also be the day that Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure opens at EPCOT. Each night Beacons of Magic will shine in each of the Disney Parks at Walt Disney World Resort. This will bring an EARidescent glow to the icons of each park. At Disney’s Animal Kingdom there will also be a new daytime show. Disney KiteTails will be offered multiple times each day at the Discovery River Amphitheater. Throughout all the parks, the “Disney Fab 50” will be found. This will be a collection of 50 gold Disney characters found throughout the parks at Walt Disney World Resort. Disney characters will also be dressed in their best EARidescent outfits for the celebration.

Walt Disney World Resort’s 50th anniversary celebration will run for 18 months starting on October 1, 2021. Mickey and Minnie will be the host of this celebration, along with all of the Cast Members of Walt Disney World Resort.
