Disney has today revealed a replacement castle show for Celebrate The Magic at the Magic Kingdom. Once Upon a Time will replace the show on November 4th as the castle receives a brand new story to prelude Wishes.

It would seem that the live action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast in the works, and the 25th Anniversary of the animated movie, has influenced Disney and this show. Mrs Potts is taking the centre stage as she shares bedtime stories with Chip.

Cinderella Castle will open itself like a book as Disney stories are projected onto the castle. As the story unfolds, the castle will come alive with many of Disney’s classics including Alice in Wonderland, Winnie the Pooh and of course, Beauty and the Beast.


As the show plays out, the grand finale involves fireworks and lots of other appearances from other Disney animated classics.

While it is a shame to see Celebrate the Magic end, it has had a relatively good run and I am excited to see whats next for the Magic Kingdom. Celebrate the Magic will end of November 3rd…

What do you think of Once Upon a Time?
