As Guests enjoyed the newest Magic Kingdom firework show, Disney’s Enchantment, the performance started with a new announcement. Check out this announcement and how this may affect your next trip to the Magic Kingdom.
50th Anniversary Celebrations
Walt Disney World truly set the stage for “The World’s Most Magical Celebration.” Mickey and Minnie Mouse are now greeting Guests in their new outfits and illuminated displays will be seen on all 4 Theme Park icons including Cinderella Castle, the Tree of Life, Spaceship Earth, and the Hollywood Tower Hotel.
This was also complete with 2 BRAND NEW nighttime displays with Harmonious in EPCOT and Disney’s Enchantment in the Magic Kingdom. This celebration was complete with sweet treats and a new cavalcade as well.
We had all hoped that official Walt Disney World buses would be available for all Guests coming to celebrate this golden anniversary. Unfortunately, independent buses are still in use from Disney Resorts. Many of these independent buses are not handicap accessible. This is a great inconvenience.
As the Guests continued to pour into the Magic Kingdom last night to enjoy Disney’s Enchantment, they were first encouraged to stay a bit longer in the Magic Kingdom.
Announcement Before Fireworks
As Guests filled in the Castle Hub and crowded in through Main Street, they were greeted with a message prior to Disney’s Enchantment. The overhead announcement stated:
“To ease wait times for buses, monorails and watercraft upon exiting after tonight’s spectacular, we invite you to stay and enjoy all that the Magic Kingdom has to offer until the Park closes at 11:00pm. Thank you and please enjoy Disney’s Enchantment.”
My (Donna) family always enjoys the time after fireworks to enjoy the last few moments in the Magic Kingdom. As many are waiting in long lines for transportation, we are enjoying our favorite Disney Park rides at night.

With this overhead announcement we may encounter a few more people in line with us as we wait to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. Hopefully many Guests will enjoy more time in the Parks to help with transportation.
What do you think of this announcement concerning the strain on transportation? Do you think that this will continue to be a concern? Will this affect your family’s next evening in the Magic Kingdom? Share your thoughts with us on our Facebook Page.
