Disney have announced that Wishes will be going away in the next few months to be replaced by an all new Night time Spectacular.
The fireworks show, which has performed in The Magic Kingdom since October 2003, will have its final performance on May 11th before being replaced the following day.
Not content with just one version, Wishes has also been transformed into Happy HallowWishes for The Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party as well as Holiday Wishes, firstly during The Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party before it becomes available for all guests over the actual Christmas season.
It will be replaced by Happily Ever After, which will not only incorporate fireworks, but also projection mapping on the castle, similar to how Disney Dreams at Disneyland Paris has used that technology. This will begin on May 12th.
Here is a great video from The Trackers of Tim’s view of Wishes from the top of The Orlando Eye just this past week
