Come and join us for another installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, where I try to make it possible for you relive your Walt Disney World Memories when you can't actually be there. Today we'll continue our day in the Magic Kingdom, picking up as we have found our spot on the bridge between Tomorrowland and Main Street USA, and await the start of Wishes Nighttime Spectacular.
In our last memory, we had caught a ride on Prince Charming Regal Carroussel, and made our way to one of my favorite firework viewing spots on the bridge to Tomorrowland off the hub in front of Cinderella’s Castle. The Celebrate the Magic Castle show has completed and we’re now waiting for the fireworks. I will share some of the ambient audio as we wait, but before you know it, the music will begin to build, and Tinker Belle will make her flight, right over our heads. But don’t worry, our day is not done yet, the Magic Kingdom doesn’t close for another hour, and instead of being stuck in the crowds for an hour as we try to get out, we opt to head to the back of the park for a couple more rides.
As you’ll hear, this isn’t my most favorite Fireworks. It’s close though. For me, Illuminations has the score that stands out more than Wishes. Dont get me wrong though, there is something about the fireworks coming up off the castle, tying into the projections on the castle, and then the large fireworks exploding over the castle that tell a fantastic story. Really, we’re talking about my top 2 or 3 fireworks in the world, and this is coming from a guy living in Louisville, KY who gets to watch Thunder Over Louisville each year. Bottom line, don’t leave early, don’t use this time to go see some other attraction with no line, take this time to build memories with your family. My kids still talk about the Fireworks at Walt Disney World, and we will forever have that memory to share together.
Today’s memory is in binaural, so I’d suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now sit back. Relax. Close your eyes. And come with me as we watch some of the greatest fireworks in all the world.
