If you not one of the lucky ones to be able to witness the Disney magic in the flesh this New Year’s Eve, then worry no more this is the next best thing.

Walt Disney world will be putting a live stream of the grand New Year’s Eve performance “fantasy in the sky” firework display along with the musical accompaniment from classic Disney films such as Peter Pan, Aladdin, Pinocchio and many more. The Park goes all out for the fireworks at any time but on New years eve they make it event more special with a spectacular finale.

You can catch the live stream on the Disney Parks Blog or the Disney Parks YouTube Channel. Beginning roughly at 11:45pm EST, and beforehand there will be a special countdown on the programme at 11:59pm to make sure you don’t miss out on this explosive start to 2019.

If you have been lucky enough to Visit any of the Parks, then they are asking for you to contribute and possibly be part of the broadcast by posting photos on Twitter using the hashtag #DisneyParksLIVE.

If you are one of the lucky ones then there is plenty to see and do along with extra time to play as Magic Kingdom and Epcot will stay open until 1am, Hollywood Studios open until 12am.

If you are on the west coast, then Disneyland stays open until 2am and California adventure open until 1am.

Personally, as I have been to Disney World during this time and trust me it will be magical as well as entertaining. But by offering the live stream this gives you the chance to celebrate the new year with Mickey and friends from the comfort of your own home.


Orlando Makes Me Smile Fireworks Commercial

This 30-second commercial is of course advertising the nightly fireworks show at Walt Disney World creating timeless memories for families with children, old and young alike.

Orlando has theme parks to suit every taste including of course Universal Orlando, Seaworld Orlando and Legoland Florida to name just a few.

If you should get the opportunity to visit any of these attractions we would love to see the pictures.


… Fantasy in the sky

Children and adults alike from all corners of the World hold a huge fascination for fireworks and of course all things Disney so it comes as no surprise that almost every night of the year, Walt Disney World resorts hold a fireworks display over the iconic Cinderella’s Castle.

With the addition of some clever lighting and HUGE fireworks lighting the night sky, the magic and fantasy are brought to life. Effects include bright pearls, huge chrysanthemums, horse’s tails, stars, palms and brocades to name a few in this wonderful 9-minute display which is choreographed alongside some of the most iconic musical scores in the World and it just goes to prove that when you wish for stars, you shall see them.
