May 11, 2017 – The Nighttime Fireworks Show Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams Ends
“Wishes, dream a dream; Wishes, set it free…”
On May 11, 2017, the nighttime fireworks show Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams ended its run at Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom Park. It was narrated by Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio. Replacing the Fantasy in the Sky in 2003, the show became popular with guests, with a variation of the show opening in Disneyland Paris on July 16, 2005. Special variations of the show were created to celebrate specific holidays, including Happy HalloWishes: A Grim Grinning Ghost Spooktacular in the Sky; Holiday Wishes: Celebrate the Spirit of the Season; and Fantasy in the Sky: New Year’s Eve Countdown. The show was replaced by the Happily Ever After nighttime spectacular, which focused heavily on projection mapping on Cinderella Castle.
