There is more to Disney Enchantment than just fireworks. A large part of the show takes place on Cinderella Castle in the form of projections. The Park’s icon transforms into scenes from classic and newer Disney movies. Music adds to the experience.

Angela Basset is the narrator for Disney Enchantment. Some of the movies that are featured are ‘Coco’, ‘Lady and the Tramp’, and ‘Moana’. More recent movies include ‘Onward’ and ‘Raya and the Last Dragon’. The closing song is the original ‘You Are the Magic’.

One new feature of Disney Enchantment is that the projections are not only on Cinderella Castle. There are also projections on the buildings up and down Main Street, U.S.A. These are not the star of the show, and if you aren’t in a spot where you will clearly see them you will not miss out.

The best place to watch Disney Enchantment is on Main Street, U.S.A. with Cinderella Castle straight in front of you. You will be able to see the fireworks in other parts of the Magic Kingdom, but you will most likely miss the projections.

People will start to claim their spots for Disney Enchantment an hour or more before it begins. Disney will block off areas to help control the traffic. The show could be canceled due to inclement weather.

If you don’t want to fight the crowds and you have a sweet tooth, you might want to consider booking a Fireworks Dessert Party. Depending on which package you choose, you can have the dessert before or after the fireworks. Another option is Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise. Spots for these events fill up quickly, so book as soon as you can. Reservations are available 60 days in advance.

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH, and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married, and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010, we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the Parks. Under the name Paula Brown, I penned the novels 'Dream Wanderers' and 'The Coffee Cruiser'. I also am a co-author of 'Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide'. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida.
