Disneyland's 'Magical' fireworks

Post by elizabethswann » Apr Mon 27, 2009 11:47 am

Magical is a new Disney fireworks spectacular created especially to celebrate Summer Nightastic! at Disneyland. Tinker Bell is once again your host, waving her wand to ignite the brilliant color, stunning special effects and charming music. But she won’t be alone in the sky this summer. Dumbo will make his surprise airborne debut in the new show. Tink’s sparkling touch awakens a fantastic array of Disney’s most magical characters, from Pinocchio to Mary Poppins to Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother, and the Three Good Fairies from Sleeping Beauty.

Dumbo flies? I'll have to reserve judgment until I see this one in person (or on video). I am intrigued though!

It'll be interesting to see how they pull off Dumbo flying...

Interestingly, parts of the show will be using the soundtrack from Splashtacular at Epcot (or "It's Magical, Join In!" in Tokyo Disneyland.. same music)

There's a video of Steve Davidson acting out the Finale on youtube (probably a spoiler) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61ZOrS-hyaI

EDIT: I've just found video of the entire presentation. Again, huge spoiler warning here.

I saw the show on July 6th. Pretty disappointing. No Dumbo or even Tinkerbell!! I loved the Music though.

Meh music seemed a little too sappy to me. A lot of rather sad music playing, Dumbo flew on 2 nights out of the 5 I saw it. Tink flew on 3 of the nights. I can safely say I am not a fan of the new fireworks and don't plan on making any special effort to see them again. Can't wait for Remember to come back.

I saw the new show back in June and they had both Tink and Dumbo flying. It was a Friday, though I'm not sure if that matters. It might be a matter of wind/air quality whether they use both.

As for the show, it's not bad, but it certainly is no "Remember..." The music is a bit too disjointed. I've heard they will be replacing the show in the fall with a Villains themed show for Halloween, and then the Christmas show starts after that, so I think this might just be a filler show. The Dumbo is awesome, though.

I saw this show last week and Dumbo was flying as well as Tinkerbell. A cast member told me that Dumbo hadn't flown the night before however because wind really is an issue with the dumbo costume and it can't go up even with the slightest wind because of the danger. As for the show I saw it however I wouldn't make a point of trying to stop to view it again. I much prefer the "Remember Dreams Come True" show.

I heard there will be a new Halloweentime show with Jack Skellington as the narrator.
