Celebrate The Magic – Complete Video of new Castle Projection Show

Celebrate the Magic

A new digital projection castle show officially premiered this week. Each night guests at the Magic Kingdom will experience the new nighttime show, filled with special effects and magic, projected onto Cinderella Castle. In “Celebrate the Magic,” 189-foot tall Cinderella Castle becomes a shimmering canvas, transforming the Castle into a rocket, a gingerbread house, a circus tent, a jungle, a video game, the Cheshire Cat and more. Dozens of favorite Disney and Pixar characters also appear in playful animated sequences. Right now Cinderella Castle is decorated with holiday lights, which adds an extra element of magic as well.

Celebrate the Magic

“Celebrate the Magic” is a journey to the heart of the most beloved Disney stories and characters, according to show director Katy Harris. The show features many new segments, including Brave and Wreck-it Ralph, and also incorporate favorite elements from the previous projection show , “The Magic, The Memories and You!,” which ran from January of 2011 to September 2012.

Here’s a short video with highlights from the show and a few comments from the show’s producer Katy Harris.

The spectacle is scheduled most nights, with up to two shows per night, depending on theme park operating hours and other special ticketed events. If you can’t make it out to the park to see it in person, I’ve included a full length version of the show below the jump:

  1. I was extremely disappointed with the show. It lacked the excitement that MM&Y had. The show didn’t interact with the castle like before, which made it seem like it was really just the back drop and the could have projected it on any other building. There were places in the show that looked like they were lacking something, almost as if they had spaces built in for photos. They show was cute, but dull. Anyone who hasn’t seen MM&Y will probably enjoy it because they don’t have something to compare it to.

  2. Must say that the video looks better than the show I saw last night. Maybe it was because I was too close to the castle or maybe it was because not all the elements appeared to be working (e.g. no sword fighters in pirate sequence, long pauses between sequences). I didn’t think it was as good as the original show … this one just appears to be projected onto the castle as if it were a screen. The original appeared to use the castle more creatively. I used to go to the park just to see the show. Now I can stay home and watch the video. It’s better.
