Disney's 'The Magic, the Memories, and You' to close Labor Day. New show to debut at WDW in November
Written by Robert Niles
If you're fan of Disney's The Magic, the Memories, and You show, you'd better hurry down to your local Magic Kingdom, because Disney's announced the show will be going away after this Labor Day, Sept. 3.Tweet
In Florida, Disney will replace the show with a new castle-projection show called "Celebrate the Magic." From the press release:
"'Celebrate the Magic' takes us on a journey to the heart of the most beloved Disney stories and characters," said Show Director Katy Harris. "This amazing show will magically transform Cinderella Castle with spectacular projection effects, choreographed to a new music soundtrack. The show will be full of emotion and storytelling, proving that, with imagination and magic in our hearts, anything is possible."
That sounds a bit like elements from the Disney Dreams show at Disneyland Paris, which also incorporates castle projections. What we do know the new show won't include, however, is the guest pictures which now make up a chunk of The Magic, the Memories, and You. So if you want your chance to see yourself on the castle or the Small World facade, you've got until Sept. 3. The new show will debut in November.
What about Disneyland, you might ask? West coast fans are out of luck on this one. Small World will get its holiday makeover in a couple months, but no new projection show. But, hey, we do get Glow with the Show ears, so there's that we've got over Orlando.
