Show Details

The theme song for Magical isn’t actually original to the show. It first was heard during Tokyo Disneyland’s “It’s Magical,” a castle show that debuted for their 15th Anniversary. The following year, Epcot borrowed most of the soundtrack from “It’s Magical” to premiere “Splashtacular,” a stage show that took place in front of the park’s famous Fountain of Nations.

The music in the Princess segment was actually first featured in the Magic Kingdom’s “Magic, Music, and Mayhem” which was shown during the short-lived Pirate & Princess Parties

The version of “A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes” played after the show’s conclusion is actually sung by American Idol contestant Kimberley Locke. It originally was featured as part of the Disney Mania 3 CD collection.


Sing along with the entire show. Below are the lyrics for Magical, the fireworks spectacular at Disneyland! Just be sure not to sing louder than the soundtrack!

The second star to the right,
Shines in the night for you.
To tell you that the dreams you plan
Really can come true.
The second star to the right,
Shines with a light that's rare.
And if it's Neverland you need
It's light will lead you there.

It’s magical, it’s magical, it’s magical, it’s magical!
It’s wonderful, it’s magical, it’s wonderful, it’s magical!
It’s beautiful, it’s magical, it’s beautiful, it’s magical!

<Tinker Bell Flies Over the Castle>

It’s magical, it’s wonderful, it’s beautiful, exciting!
It’s magical, it’s wonderful, it’s beautiful, inviting!
Magical, Magical, Magical!

Follow the dreams in you,
See them through,
Find what you're wishing for!
It happens magically, watch and see,
Happiness will spread its wings and soar!

Make a wish on a shooting star.
Wish for magic and see where you are.
Feel your heart open up and you'll see
Your hopes are so free and it’s so unbelievable magical
Wonderful, wishing makes your dreams come true!

Starlight star bright, make me wish come true tonight!
I wish that my little Pinocchio, might be a real live boy!

Blue Fairy
Little puppet made of pine,
Wake! The gift of life is thine.

<Instrumental Pinocchio medley>

Chim chim-in-ey, chim chim-in-ey Chim chim cher-ee!
Chim chim-in-ey, chim chim-in-ey Chim chim cher-ee!
Chim chim-in-ey Chim chim Chim chim cher-ee!

Narrator / Chorus
Up where the smoke is all billowed and curled,
'Tween pavement and stars is a magical world.
When there's hardly no day ‘nd hardly no night,
Just things half in shadow and halfway in light.
On the rooftops of London, O what a sight!

Mary Poppins
You see children, everything is practically perfect in every way
Or my name isn’t Mary Poppins!

<Instrumental Mary Poppins medley>

Baby mine, don’t you cry.
Baby mine, dry your eyes.
Rest your head close to my heart,
Never to part, baby of mine

Timothy Mouse
You can do it Dumbo! You can fly, you dont need a magic feather!

<Dumbo Flies Over the Castle>

<Instrumental Dumbo medley>

You are so precious to me.
Cute as can be.
Baby of mine.

<Instrumental Enchanted music>

No matter how you're heart is grieving,
If you keep on believing,
The dream that you wish, will come true.

I can’t believe, not any more.
It’s just no use.

Fairy Godmother
Oh, come come now Cinderella.
Dry those tears, and you shall go to the ball!
Now, the magic words, everyone say them with me
And oh what magic you’ll see!

Bibbidi! Bobbidi! Boo!

<Instrumental princess music>

Oh, isn’t it lovely ladies?

Oh yes Fauna, it’s charming!

Enchanted, isn’t it Merriweather? And now the perfect PINK finale!

No, blue!

Ooh! Pink!

Oh! Blue!

Pink! Pink! Pink!

Blue! Blue! Blue

Oh, ladies! Ladies, please!
It’s all beautiful and when we believe,
Why, that’s when any wish can come true!
And you know what we call that?


It’s magical, it’s wonderful, it’s beautiful, exciting!
It’s magical, it’s wonderful, it’s beautiful, inviting!
It’s magical, it’s wonderful, it’s beautiful, exciting!

Narrator / Chorus
Wishes can come true!
Have faith in your dreams and someday
(Have faith in your dreams)
Your rainbow will come shining through!
(Your rainbow will come shining through)
No matter how your heart is grieving,
(Trust your heart)
If you keep on believing...
(Just keep on believing)
Make a wish on a shooting star,
(Make a wish)
Find the joy in the child that you are
(Find the joy)
Feel your heart open up and you'll see
You're hopes are so free and it’s so unbelievably magical!
Wishing makes your dreams come true!
