Although the Walt Disney World Resort differs in its philosophy for entertaining guests than its west coast counterpart, Disneyland — as the latter relies far more heavily on locals and keeping them amused — the Magic Kingdom’s nighttime fireworks program remained mostly unchanged for over a decade. Conversely, within that same time period, Disneyland has had three different shows debut. In other words, it may just be time for ‘Wishes’ to be retired.
Reporting from the new Disney Cruise Line facility in Toronto, Deb Wills of AllEarsNet has confirmed via Twitter something we reported several months ago, that a new musical titled ‘Wishes’ will debut on-board the Disney Fantasy when she sets sail early next year.
Although details have surely changed since we first reported the new show (which we first knew to be titled ‘Reflections’), here are some of the role descriptions we first shared:
Specific roles that appear to be tied to the new show include:
With casting calls for the Disney Fantasy (maiden voyage March 31, 2012) beginning soon, we have learned that the new production being created exclusively for the Disney Fantasy will be titled ‘Reflections.’ This news comes via the resume page of choreographer Darren Lee on his agents’ website. Interestingly enough, Lee’s resume also lists ‘Toy Story’ at the Hyperion Theatre at Disney California Adventure, the show once announced to replace ‘Aladdin,’ before Disney Parks abruptly announcing an indefinite extension of ‘Aladdin,’ a move we used to feed our inane assumption that the staged musical version of ‘Newsies’ would be moving into the park.
Beginning tomorrow, guests can call 407-WDW-DINE and reserve spots for a new fireworks viewing/dessert reception area located at the Tomorrowland Terrace Noodle Station. The cost for the event is $17.99 per adult and $9.99 per children (ages 3-9). The event is currently scheduled to run nightly from June 23 through August 28.
