Disney World’s 50th Anniversary is turning into the party to end all parties.
We’ve seen tons of new merchandise, themed treats, special golden statues — what else does a celebration need? How about a brand new fireworks show over the iconic Cinderella Castle? We’re at the official opening night of Disney World’s new Magic Kingdom nighttime show, Disney Enchantment. And, we’re definitely not the only ones here — check out the crowds that turned out to watch this show’s debut!
Disney Enchantment is a fireworks show, but it also includes immersive projections that extend all the way down Main Street, U.S.A., enhanced lighting, Disney music, and an original song entitled “You Are the Magic.” We’ll bring you all the info on the new show, but right now let’s take a look at how many people came out to watch today. First of all, here’s what crowds looked like this morning at park open, just to get an idea of what we’re dealing with:
When we went over to the front of the castle around 7PM, we noticed people were already camping out their spots for the show, which doesn’t start until 9PM!

As the time was getting closer for Disney Enchantment to begin, people were lined up and down Main Street, U.S.A. getting ready for the show. At least they got to see a really pretty sunset while they waited!
Just look at all those people!
Back in front of the castle, the crowd had grown as well.
These people are DETERMINED to get a good spot for the first showing of Enchantment!
Here’s another angle for ya!
Cast Members were working to direct people on where to go for viewing.
We hope these people brought a way to entertain themselves until the show.
Once it got dark, those crowds just got bigger.
There was not a lot of wiggle room!
People were even standing BEHIND Plaza Restaurant waiting for the show. Uh, WHAT?!
The anticipation for the show is building!

People finally got to see what they’d been waiting for!
