The Nighttime Spectacular Wishes

Welcome to this month's Blogorail Green Loop. Today we are discussing some of the amazing nighttime spectaculars at the Disney Parks.

One of the most magical nighttime shows at Walt Disney World is held at the Magic Kingdom. Since 2003 Wishes has graced the sky nearly nightly. This show is hosted by Jiminy Cricket and The Blue Fairy and takes us through wishes of various characters both good and bad. 
To me this show depicts the magic that is Disney and my favorite place to view this nighttime spectacular really shows the beauty and magic of Wishes. 
This past September I was lucky enough to have a dinner at California Grill. We chose a time where we could enjoy a view of Magic Kingdom at night and watch Wishes during dinner. California Grill is located at the top of the Contemporary Resort and features an observation deck to view Wishes from. If you eat at California Grill anytime during the day you are more than welcome to bring your receipt up to the front around the time Wishes shows and you can go out to the observation deck.  
When it is time for Wishes the lights go down in the restaurant and they pipe in the music both in the restaurant and on the observation deck. From here you can see pure Magic over Magic Kingdom. For me, this is now my favorite place to watch the fireworks from. I can't describe how emotional I get when I see Main Street and Cinderella's Castle with the fireworks overhead. It is pure Magic.

Candlelight Processional at Epcot

Welcome to this month's Blogorail Orange Loop. Today we are sharing some of the fun you can find at Disney during the holidays.

Visiting Walt Disney World during the holiday's is extra magical. Seeing the parks all decorated and all of the events held you can't help but be put in a happy mood. My favorite event that Disney holds during the holiday season is the Candlelight Processional at Epcot. 

This event is held every year starting in mid November and goes until around January 1st. Candlelight Processional tells the Christmas story in a glorious way. There is an orchestra and featured are the Voices of Liberty, who you can usually see at the American Pavillion. The choir is made up of both castmembers, they wear green robes and make up a tree, and then of local choirs who wear gold robes. 

The biggest part of the show is the narrator of the Christmas Story. Each year several celebrities come to read to the audience the Christmas Story. Narrators such as Neil Patrick Harris, Whoopi Goldberg, Jodi Benson, and many many more. Each one has their own way of telling the story so you can see the show over and over again and feel a difference each time. 

This show is held at the theatre in America at the World Showcase. You have two ways to see this amazing show. You can do standby, but this can be a long line to wait in depending on the narrator, or you can do a Candlelight Package. The Candlelight Package allows you a meal and the special seats for the show. I highly recommend to the package so you don't have to worry about getting seats. 

I can't begin to tell you how emotional this show makes me feel. I will be honest and say I cry tears of joy each time I see it. The mix of the narrator, voices of liberty, orchestra, and choir this is a moving and is a can't miss experience!
