“Wishes” do come true!
There are moments in life, when you stand speechless. Moments that while you are in them, your hair stands on end and afterward, you look around and think, “Did that just happen!?” For example, Cinderella when she thought back on the ball. As the fireworks spectacular “Wishes” comes to a close at the Magic Kingdom, I thought it might be fun to share memories of “Wishes”!
In April 2014, it had been about 14 years since I had been to Disney. My friend was living in Orlando at the time and graciously invited me for a visit.
We met up, and headed straight for the Magic Kingdom. We had dinner with Pooh and Friends at The Crystal Palace and, as if that wasn’t enough, after riding rides and taking in sights it was time for fireworks!
My friend expertly guided me to her favorite viewing spot and although there were thousands of people in the park with us, when Jiminy Cricket’s voice filled the air, it was as if it were just my friend and I standing there. It was breathtaking!
At the time “Frozen” fever had just erupted throughout the world. Anna and Elsa were everywhere and, at least in my car, “Let it Go” was on repeat! The park was abuzz during “Wishes” that night, as we journeyed through all the classic movie wishes. When Elsa appeared on Cinderella Castle, time stood still. As the “snow started to blow wild on the mountain that night”, the entire park, people from all over the world stood there around me, and in unison we all sang every word of “Let it go.” It was a truly magical experience. You could actually hear the crowd singing over the music of the show! My hair stood on end and it’s one of my favorite memories to this day! A fantastic memory to start a great trip!
The next year when I saw “Wishes” again I thought the same thing would happen, but the atmosphere was completely different. Proving once again that, Disney World is ever changing and always a new experience!
Do you have a favorite “Wishes” memory? Feel free to share it in the comments!
I hope all your wishes come true!
