Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams!

Hi my friends! Happy springtime!

Tonight is the final performance of Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams!

In my previous article I covered the announcement of the debut of Happily Ever After, the new fireworks display!

I wanted to share a video of Wishes that I took last summer! This has been my favorite WDW fireworks display since it’s debut! I have some personal memories attached to it from two different relationships, which holds a certain place in my heart.

However, I love the theme of the show – how to NEVER give up on your DREAMS and how you CAN achieve them! Every time I’ve watched the display, I cry throughout the entire show, it touches my heart!

Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams

Did you know…

  • 683 fireworks are shot off during 557 cues!
  • Wishes debuted in October 9, 2003 at the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World.
  •  It replaced Fantasy In The Sky show, which had run for 32 years.

Wishes is currently sponsored by Pandora jewelry. I have not heard if there a sponsor for the new show.

 

Enjoy the lyrics to Wishes below!


[BLUE FAIRY]
When stars are born, they possess a gift or two.
One of those is, they have the power to make a wish come true.

Star light, star bright,
first star I see tonight.
I wish I may, I wish I might,
have the wish, I wish tonight.
We’ll make a wish, and do as dreamers do,
and all our wishes (all our wishes),
will come true.

When you wish, upon a star
Makes no difference who you are
Anything your heart desires will come…to…you.

[JIMINY CRICKET]
Pretty, huh? I’ll bet a lot of you folks don’t believe that, about a wish coming true, do ya? We’ll I didn’t either.
Course, I’m just a cricket, but lemme tell you what made me change my mind.
You see, the most fantastic, magical things can happen, and it all starts with a wish!

(Tinker Bell flies down)

If your heart is in your dreams,

[CINDERELLA]
I wish…I could go to the ball

[SNOW WHITE]
I’m wishing…someday, my prince will come

No request is too extreme,

[ARIEL]
Ha-ha. I wish…Ohh…I wish I could be part of that world

[PETER PAN]
I wish…we’d never have to grow up. Off to Neverland, ha-ha

When you wish upon a star,
As dreamers do.

[PINOCCHIO]
Look Jiminy, someday I wish I could be a real boy

[ALADDIN]
Genie, I wish for your freedom

Wishes.

JIMINY – You know, any wish is possible.
All it takes is a little courage, to set it free

(music)

[JIMINY]
A wish is a powerful thing, especially when it comes from the heart.

Fate is kind.
She brings to those who love,
The sweet fulfilment of their secret longing.

[JIMINY]
Like a bolt out of the blue,
fate steps in and sees you through.
When you wish upon a star,
your dreams…come true.
Ha-ha.
Sometimes, wishes can be granted in the most unexpected ways.

[GENIE]
Whoa! 10,000 Years can give ya such a crick in the neck.
Hello people, up here, come on, we’ve got some wishes to grant!

[JIMINY]
Uh oh, now don’t worry.
Just remember, always let your conscience be your guide.
Let your conscience be
your guide…let your conscience be your guide…

[SNOW QUEEN]
Slaves in the magic mirror, come from the farthest space.
Through wind and darkness, I summon thee.
Let me see thy face.
A blast of wind, to find my fate.
A thunderbolt, to cast my spell.
Alas, grant me my wish as well.
HaHaHaHaHa

[JIMINY]
You know folks, you gotta be careful what you wish for around here, or you’ll get yourself in an awful mess.
But just when things look bad, fate steps in to see you through.
We’ll I’ll be, it’s the Blue Fairy!

[BLUE FAIRY]
Remember, we must always believe in our wishes, for they are the magic in the world.
Now, let’s all put our hearts together, and make a wish come true.

Star light, star bright,
first star I see tonight.
I wish I may, I wish I might,
have the wish, I wish tonight.
We’ll make a wish, and do as dreamers do,
and all our wishes,
will come true.

[JIMINY]
You see, its just like I told ya.
Wishes can come true, if you believe in them with all your heart.
And the best part is, you’ll never run out of wishes.
They’re shining deep down inside of you.
‘Cause that my friends is where the magic lives

Wishes! Dream a dream (fate is kind)
Wishes! Set it free (she brings to those who love)
Wishes! Trust your heart (the sweet fulfilment of)
Just Believe (their secret longing)
Just Believe (just believe)

Like a bolt out of the blue,
fate steps in and sees you through.
When you wish upon a star, your dreams…come…true

Make a wish, and do as dreamers do (just do as dreamers do)

Make a wish!
(Wishes!) Dream a dream!
(Wishes!) Cross your heart!
And your wish…will…come…true!

[JIMINY]
Ha-ha, see what a little wishing can do?

Disney ‘Wishes’ Exit Music Lyrics

[JIMINY]
Thanks folks, for making this little gathering of ours so extra magical.
From our family and friends to yours, goodnight, and may all your wishes come true.
So long!

Star light, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish, I wish tonight

Oh, a world of wishes.
A world where dreams come true.
So make a wish, see it through.
Dare to do what dreamers do

Wishes,
Dream a dream
Wishes,
Set it free
Wishes,
Trust your heart,
Just believe

We’re all just children, reaching for our dreams.
There shining high above us, and even though it seems, so far (so far).
We put our faith and hope on a shooting star.

Wishes,
Dream a dream
Wishes,
Set it free
Wishes,
Trust your heart
Just believe (oh, believe)

Star light, star bright
First star I see tonight
I wish I may I wish I might
have the wish I wish tonight
We’ll make a wish, and do as dreamers do
And all our wishes (all our wishes)
all our wishes
will come true

Oh, wishes
Wishes
