As we shared earlier this year, “Wishes” fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park will end its run on May 11 to make way for the brand-new nighttime spectacular, “Happily Ever After.”

We know that “Wishes” means a lot to Disney Parks Blog readers around the world, so we’re giving you a chance to watch it live on March 23, right here on the Disney Parks Blog. The #DisneyParksLIVE stream will begin at 8:55 p.m. on Thursday night. A fresh blog post will appear at the top of the blog on that day/time for viewing. We’ll kick off the broadcast with a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of “Wishes.” And don’t forget to stick around after the fireworks end – we’ll share an amazing update on the new “Happily Ever After” show with all of you!

Don’t forget, you can see “Wishes” yourself at Magic Kingdom Park now through May 11. “Happily Ever After” will debut at the park the following evening, on May 12.

  • Never saw the ‘fresh blog post’. Bummer.

  • I see no link!

  • It our tradition to watch Wishes from our hotel room at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. The magic is real! #DisneyParksLIVE

  • Greetings from Pontrhydfendigaid in Wales, UK. I am going to stay up as late as my eyes will allow and hopefully I will see it, Here’s to my new plan the matchsticks and lots of coffee. My daughters have school in the morning so they are tucked up in their little beds. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to see my favourite Disney show one more time, it will keep me going till our next WDW holiday in July (we will be celebrating our 20th visit).

  • are you guy only going to show it here or also on facebook? and how can i see it?

  • Please don’t stop wishes. I have been going for over 10 years and this is such a great part of the night. I remember when you tried to replace wishes a few years ago and you brought back wishes due to people not liking the new show as much. wishes is what DISNEY is all about.

  • I am trying to see the link to Disney Park live for Wishes firework but can’t see it. Please advise on how to do this

  • We use tab cast with our Chromecast to put it up on the TV. Once you tab cast, then you can make it full screen and it will fill the TV screen (if there is no Chromecast option available for the video itself)

  • Let wishes never be forgotten.

  • Thank you for this last opportunity to see the greatest of all Disney shows, one that never fails to put an emotional exclamation point on any visit to Walt Disney World. It will be sad to no longer hear Jiminy Cricket’s narration. Disney is our happy place and as proud DVC owners, we typically support changes in “the world”, but this was a devastating announcement and will continue to break our hearts. No other special event music will compare to Wishes, regardless of how many talented musicians and composers may be involved. Wishes touched us all.

  • Will this be a live stream via YouTube? If not, will there be Google cast ability? I’d love to watch this on my main display.

  • I’ll have to find a sub for bowling.

  • Will the stream be archived anywhere for later viewing?

  • How do I view the show?

    • A fresh blog post will appear at the top of the blog on March 23 at 8:55 p.m. for viewing.

  • As Jodie said is this Florida time or UK time? So want to watch it as it will be gone when we go on September.

    • It is 8:55 p.m. ET.

  • I’m assuming that’s 8.55pm orlando time. Will it be available to watch afterwards or only during the live stream. As we are in the UK and it would be around 2am for us. A little to late to keep the kids up. Lol.

  • While the family will miss Wishes(nighttime parade) we are very excited to see(nighttime parade) what new magic Disney(nighttime parade) has in store for us!(nighttime parade) What has me really excited (nighttime parade) is we will be in the parks(nighttime parade) this week for a surprise(nighttime parade) trip! The kids think we are going hiking in Georgia! ??

  • A big THANK YOU!! to the team for giving us one last chance to watch live as we’ll miss the last night by 1 week. 🙁 My family and I are sad to see this go, appreciate the new magic to come … and will watch one last time, close our eyes, and make a wish that we were there!!

  • Whether it was our honeymoon, the night we got engaged, our first trip together, or the countless trips in between, my wife and I have ended so many perfect Disney days with the magic that is Wishes. We are definitely sad to see it go. Big thanks to Jen and the DPB team for giving us one last show!
