Premiered on November 13 Walt Disney World Resort guests began to experience a new nighttime show, filled with special effects and magic, projected onto Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom Park.
In "Celebrate the Magic," 189-foot tall Cinderella Castle becomes a shimmering canvas, transforming the Castle into a rocket, a gingerbread house, a circus tent, a jungle, a video game, the Cheshire Cat and more. Dozens of favorite Disney and Pixar characters also appear in playful animated sequences. "Celebrate the Magic" is a journey to the heart of the most beloved Disney stories and characters, according to show director Katy Harris. "Celebrate the Magic" will incorporate favorite elements from the previous projection show , "The Magic, The Memories and You!," which ran from January of 2011 to September 2012.
The spectacle is scheduled most nights, with up to two shows per night, depending on theme park operating hours and other special ticketed events. There's more to come as the expansion of the New Fantasyland - nearly doubling in size --- continues at Magic Kingdom Park. Dec. 6, 2012 has been set as the Grand Opening of New Fantasyland with previews beginning Nov. 19.
