Guests were asked to go to their Twitter to unlock a special preview of the new fireworks premiering May 12 following the performance Disney parks blog announced that the preview was unlocked and guest could check it out. So like so many other people I had to take a look the soundtrack is going to feature upbeat re-orchestrated Disney Classics along with a very new modern theme song that happened to bring me to tears.

The State of the art show is going to be using some new technology can Vining lasers, photo map imaging, fireworks and an amazing score even though a lot of people will miss wishes I truly think that happily ever after will quickly win them over and become a magical ending to every night at the Magic Kingdom.

At the end of me Disney’s animal Kingdom open it’s long-awaited avatar land guest have been talking about this for many years and it seems like Disney is about to deliver a very unique never before seen theamd land that has been closely guarded by the Disney Imagineering.

No Christmas “parade” taping at Disney World this year

Posted on Updated on


The ABC Disney Parks Christmas Day television special will be returning to film at Walt Disney World and Disneyland this year, but with some changes.

DISNEY announced From Nov. 9-13, ABC will be taping portions of the Christmas special at all four Walt Disney World theme parks. Unlike previous years, the parade portion will not be taped in Florida. Instead, the parade will take place at Disneyland in California. 

Here in Walt Disney World, there will be multiple musical performances and stage show elements taped at all four parks. Guests may stop and watch the tapings during regular park hours, but as always specific tickets to be part of the audience before and after park hours are only available to cast members.

This year will mark the first in the special’s 33-year history that some part of the parade portion will not take place at Walt Disney World. The special has also undergone several name changes over the years, with last year’s name being based off the “Unforgettable Happens Here” advertisement campaign. There’s no word if there be another name change this year.

This is always a fun time at Disney even though there’s lots of standing there’s always something to see those with mobility issues should definitely seek a wheelchair if they cannot stand for long periods of times and always make sure you have water!
