After months of anticipation, the new nighttime spectacular “Wondrous Journeys” has finally premiered at Disneyland for the Disney 100 Years of Wonder celebration.
The show, which takes place primarily at Sleeping Beauty Castle and Main Street, U.S.A. features nods to every Walt Disney Animation Studios feature film to date, from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” to “Strange World.” Additional projections can be seen on the façade of “it’s a small world” in Fantasyland.
Aurora is shown during the “Once Upon a Dream” number from “Sleeping Beauty.”
During the “Encanto” segment, the castle transforms into the Madrigals’ casita.
The “toy ships” segment shows different vehicles and large creatures from Disney’s animated canon represented as playthings. Films referenced in this segment include “Lilo & Stitch” and “Treasure Planet.”
Next, the castle is painted with the “Colors of the Wind” during the “Pocahontas” segment.
We’re off to Neverland as Peter Pan, Wendy, Michael, and John fly over the rooftops of London.
We then head to San Fransokyo and the world of “Big Hero 6.” As “Immortals” plays, Baymax takes to the skies and flies overhead.
The show features an original song, “It’s Wondrous.”
We also caught a view of the show from “it’s a small world”
You can watch the video from there below, or watch the view with projections on Main Street, U.S.A., here.
Testing for the show has been ongoing in the last week. We managed to catch a glimpse at a test run including fireworks last week.
