Wishes Disney World Fireworks Show Overview:
Tinker Bell, a welcome holdover from the last show, gets the pixie dust flowing as she flies from Cinderella Castle. The castle, which provides a dramatic backdrop for the display, is itself integrated into the show through some impressive lighting and effects. The synchronization between the soundtrack and the fireworks is astonishing--down to the syllable. The fireworks feature some graceful "brocade waterfalls" or "chrysanthemums," bursts that paint the sky and linger as they cascade for a stunning effect.
"Wishes" is not as spectacular as either Epcot's "Illuminations" or Disney-MGM Studios' "Fantasmic!"--two of Walt Disney World's crowning achievements--but it is a must-see show and a wonderful way to end the evening at the Magic Kingdom.
