Everyone who goes to Disney World likes to end their day on a high note! Especially by watching Disney fireworks! Over at Magic Kingdom, the Disney Enchantment fireworks show will take guests on a journey filled with adventure, wonder and empowerment inspiring everyone to believe in magic! It will also feature music, enhanced lighting, amazing fireworks and immersive projection effects that will extend from Cinderella Castle to Main Street U.S.A. Even if you aren’t inside Magic Kingdom, you can still catch the fireworks show at several nearby resorts!

5 Best Disney World Hotels to see the Fireworks 1

Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort

The first is a favorite of ours! Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort is a Disney resort located on the monorail line. You can take the monorail to the Magic Kingdom or to the other resort hotels on the monorail line (Grand Floridian and Contemporary). Surrounded by tropical flora, this visually appealing retreat makes you feel as if you are vacationing on a tropical island. In the evening you can watch the Magic Kingdom fireworks from the resort beach.

Epcot’s Harmonious Nighttime Show

Harmonious has a runtime of 20 minutes and will take place nightly, weather permitting. The show takes guests on a thrilling journey through new interpretations of classic Disney songs. 15 favorite Disney songs have been reimagined by a culturally diverse ensemble of 240 artists from around the world. This includes musicians, composers, arrangers, vocalists and more. These songs play amid choreographed moving fountains, lights, lasers, fireworks and other special effects that light up the night sky over World Showcase Lagoon.

Let’s take a closer look at the key scenes and music from Harmonious:

  • Harmonious will open with a medley of songs including “How Far I’ll Go” from Moana and “Go the Distance” from Hercules. Both are performed by American Idol finalist and GRAMMY nominee Danny Gokey who is joined by vocalists Elisha Garrett and Ninet Tayeb. 
  • Favorite songs from The Lion King are then performed in both English and Zulu by the Ndlovu Youth Choir from Johannesburg. 
  • Vocalist Bryson Camper and legendary gospel artists Karen Clark Sheard and Kierra Sheard then take us through a rendition of “Dig a Little Deeper” from The Princess and the Frog
  • French Pop Star Damien Sargue then performs a rendition of “Out There”from The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

    Guests are then taken through songs from Brave performed by GRAMMY and Emmy-nominated violinist Máiréad Nesbitt and platinum-selling electronic artist, violinist and multi-talented entertainer Lindsey Stirling.
  • Harmonious winds down with a medley featuring sections from movies including Mulan, The Jungle Book, and Aladdin. The vocal talents of Wang Liugi, Hollie Hammel, Aditya Rao, Gaayatri Kaundinya, Jorgie Shkara and Sanaa Marahati are featured.
  • Harmonious concludes with the inspiring ballad “Someday” from The Hunchback of Notre Dame which will be combined with the new EPCOT theme song from composer Pinar Toprak.

There will be a total of 15 songs featured and 13 languages represented in Harmonious. Five floating platforms will be positioned like a compass on the World Showcase to support the show’s equipment.
