'Once Upon a Time' replaces 'Celebrate the Magic' at Disney World

October 26, 2016, 11:37 AM · Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom is changing its night-time entertainment line-up next week, retiring Celebrate the Magic after a four-year run.

Replacing that projection mapping show will be another: Once Upon a Time, which has been playing at Tokyo Disneyland. A longer show with a more developed narrative than Celebrate the Magic, the Disney World version of Once Upon a Time will be narrated by Mrs. Potts from Beauty and the Beast, who will tell "bedtime stories" as the castle displays scenes and images from Disney's animated films, including Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh, and more, including Beauty and the Beast, of course.

Celebrate the Magic closes on Nov. 3 and Once Upon a Time starts the next night, Nov. 4. The initial schedule has the show playing each night at 15 minutes before the park's closing.

Featuring - uh - alternate takes on many of those same characters. Yeah, I know that phrase was in use long before the TV show, but the show is the first thing that came to my mind. Prolly because I'm currently catching up on it (I'm in season three)...

It was once a good show, but I lost interest this past season.
