Meanwhile, west coast visitors can soon find her at Disneyland Park and also in Disneyland Paris.

Disney Wish Water Show

It has recently been unveiled that guests visiting Disneyland Resort may have a chance for a unique event. A new water short featuring Wish will be presented nightly at Disney California Adventure Park. Just before the current nighttime show “World of Color – Season of Light,” guests can enjoy a quick homage to the new movie.

The entire segment is about 3 minutes long and appears to contain the entire song track.

The Wish show also contains multiple scenes from the upcoming movie and concludes with “Only in theaters November 22”. The Walt Disney Company has positioned the song “This Wish” as one of the Disney movie’s primary tracks.

About Steven

Steven has a complicated relationship with Disney. As a child, he visited Walt Disney World every few years with his family. But he never understood why kids his age (and older) were so scared of Snow White or Alien Encounter. He is a former participant of the Disney College Program (left early…long story), and he also previously worked in Children’s publishing, where he adapted multiple Disney movies and TV shows. He has many controversial opinions about Disney…like having a positive view of Michael Eisner, believing Return of the Jedi is superior to The Empire Strikes Back, and that Toy Story Land and Galaxy’s Edge should have never been built (at least not at Hollywood Studios). Every year for the past two decades, Steven has visited either Walt Disney World, Disneyland, Aulani or went on a Disney Cruise. He’s happy to share any and all knowledge of the Disney destinations (and he likes using parenthesis a lot…as well as ellipses…)
