A brand new Cinderella Castle nighttime projection show is set to debut at the Magic Kingdom on Novmeber 4!

Called “Once Upon a Time,” this heartwarming new show will features Beauty and the Beast’s Mrs. Potts sharing bedtime stories with Chip. Here Guests will go on a magical adventure through favorite Disney movies, including flying over London to Never Land with Peter Pan, watching Winnie the Pooh fly towards the top of the Castle with a colorful balloon, enjoying a whimsical tea party with the Mad Hatter, and more. The show will culminate with classic scenes from Beauty and the Beast, including Belle waltzing with Beast, Beast’s duel with Gaston, and him turning back into a Prince. The conclusion will include a grand finale of additional appearances by beloved Disney characters.

“Once Upon a Time” will take its inspiration from a projection show from the Tokyo Disney Resort. Much like the current show, “Celebrate the Magic,” “Once Upon a Time” will utilize projection mapping technology to cover every nook and cranny of Cinderella Castle in vibrant images that appear almost three-dimensional.

Celebrate the Magic” will end its four year run on November 3.

    I hope they use the shape and contours of the castle as a “character” in the show. I felt like the original “Magic Memories and You” did that more effectively than “CtM” – which I nonetheless liked a lot.
    I’m looking forward to the new show – my first reaction to the show title was that they were bringing the ABC TV show to the castle, which I would not have wanted.

    My kid in the college program tells me that some friends of his saw late night testing and that it looks amazing.

    I’ll miss “Celebrate the Magic”. We’ve seen it two or three times, now, and there’s always a moment that I find stunning. But I’m looking forward to this one when we go (in less than 5 weeks), too!
