February 18, 2000 – The Nighttime Fireworks Show Believe…There’s Magic in the Stars Begins in Disneyland
“I wish I never had to leave this magical place.”
On February 18, 2000, the nighttime fireworks show Believe…There’s Magic in the Stars began in Disneyland Park. The show, replacing Fantasy in the Sky that had run since 1956, was created to help celebrate the park’s 45th anniversary, and was the most complex show to date. For the holiday season, the show was retooled to Believe…In Holiday Magic. The show used clips and music from several Disney animated features, as well as an interwoven song created just for the show. The song was later released on the park’s official album. The show closed on November 1, 2004, and was replaced by Imagine…A Fantasy in the Sky.
