It’s a sad day here at WDW Chronicle. It has been announced that “Wishes” will have its last show on May 11th! In its place will be “Happily Ever After,” a brand new show that will have fireworks, projections, and lasers.[embedyt] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aQoKBqzM2C8[/embedyt]
Watch the video above to get some behind the scenes and explanation of the new story. Here is an excerpt from the announcement by Disney Park Blog;
The spectacular will inspire guests to seek out and find their own “Happily Ever After” by showcasing some of the greatest adventures Disney characters have taken to achieve their dreams. The show will feature the latest fireworks and pyrotechnics and original animation, plus a heart-tugging original score. And thanks to the inclusion of state-of-the-art projection mapping technology, more Disney characters than ever before will be featured in the show, including moments from “Moana,” “Brave,” “Big Hero 6,” “Zootopia,” “The Princess & The Frog,” “Aladdin” and many others.
I have to admit that I am excited to see the new show, but I’m very sad to see “Wishes” end. It is the fireworks show I “grew up” with at Disney World and it holds a very special place in my heart. My wife and I got engage during this show. It is the scene to one of the happiest days of my life. Now I will bore you with a video of that moment.[embedyt] http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gM9eG7OIM4[/embedyt]
We love this show for many reasons, but this is the most important reason. Not to mention it was the first one we had seen together. ! But, we have to expect change. The parks will always be evolving into something new and sometimes we have to lose the things we love to see new and exciting things. We also have to remember that someone else will fall in love with the new show and it will become their childhood memories. We are lucky to of had “Wishes” created memories for us!
You will be sorely missed Wishes!
“Happily Ever After” you better be good!
