More details have emerged on the new “Wondrous Journeys” fireworks spectacular, set to light the skies above Disneyland for the first time this Friday, January 27.
Walt’s original magic kingdom will become a magnificent canvas with “Wondrous Journeys,” a new nighttime spectacular that will ignite the wonder in all of us. It will feature nods to every Walt Disney Animation Studios film to date, taking us on a journey filled with artistry, music, storytelling and heart. It will continue to build upon the park’s state-of-the-art projection effects, turning Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle, the façade of “it’s a small world” and the Rivers of America into an artist’s canvas that brings characters to life all around you. On select nights, “Wondrous Journeys” will go even bigger with the addition of sparkling fireworks in the sky above Disneyland. This spectacular will also feature a new song, “It’s Wondrous.”
The show features eighteen total Disney songs throughout the show.
We also know Baymax will soar above the skies of Disneyland during the show, but Disneyland had something new to say about when that will happen:
During a climactic moment in the story, the thumping bass of the song “Immortals” from “Big Hero 6” can be heard as Baymax takes to the skies over Disneyland Park with his rocket boosters propelling him into the night.
You can take a look at the behind-the-scenes process for creating “Wondrous Journeys,” as well as preview its soundtrack. We even caught a full test of the show a few days ago that you can watch! The first show of “Wondrous Journeys” is at 9:30p.m. on Friday, January 27.
This new fireworks spectacular is only a small part of the new Disney 100 Years of Wonder celebration, honoring the century since The Walt Disney Company was founded in 1923. Guests will be able to mark this historic occasion by experiencing the grand opening of the new Mickey & Minnie’s Runaway Railway attraction, as well as two all-new nighttime spectaculars, which also includes World of Color – One at Disney California Adventure.
“World of Color – One,” at Disney’s California Adventure, will tell a new story of how a single action, like a drop of water, creates a ripple that can grow into a wave of change. The show will also feature a new original song, “Start a Wave.”
The celebration will also feature special entertainment, food, beverage, and merchandise offerings, making it a not-to-be-missed event.
