Take a virtual audio trip in this installment of the WDW-Memories podcast, brought to you in immersive binaural sound, experiencing another magical memory from Walt Disney World. In today’s memory, you will join my family as we take our spot on a bridge to watch Celebrate the Magic.
Well hello and welcome to the WDW-Memories Podcast where together we relive that Walt Disney World Magic. My name is Lou and I’ll once again be your host on this magical adventure.
It’s now under 75 days until our Walt Disney World trip in September. The parks are returning to full capacity and special nighttime attractions are returning like the one we’re going to listen to today. Now our trip is in September, and all the announcements about the new shows and attractions say Starting October 1, so I don’t think I’ll get to see and experience the newest fireworks or rides on this trip, so I guess we’ll just have to go back again at some point. Oh well.
Celebrate the Magic is such a cool experience. It is amazing how the Imagineers can take an object and make it a canvas for telling a story, and Cinderella’s Castle makes such a unique canvas. The way they use the turrets and make things crumble or take off or change color, you’d swear it was the castle itself. But the best part is the music, and the way it soars up to the sky, and then that little touch of fireworks to whet your appetite for the main event. I can’t wait to see what they do next.
For today’s memory, we are continuing our second day in the parks on our trip in September of 2016. If you remember from Memory 258, we finally completed the much-promised ride on Splash Mountain. But it’s been a while since we ate our buffet lunch in the Germany Biergarten, and the kids are tiring and needing some food. So we traverse almost the entire park, seeking cheese pizza (you’d think that’d be easy, but it wasn’t), and eventually end up finding a spot for the show and fireworks after, while I run to the nearby popcorn stand. The line is crazy, but they’re efficient and it moves, however it doesn’t give us a perfect pristine recording of Celebrate the Magic, but it’s probably is more accurate to your trips too, and will help you remember and feel that energy of the crowds around you. I’ll make it back to the spot on the bridge to the Teacups where the family is sitting and able to see just fine, and take a seat myself for the end of the show.
Today’s memory is in binaural once again, so I’d suggest putting those headphones on to fully immerse yourself in the memory.
Now that you have your headphones on, let’s join my family as we make our way around the park, and enjoy a castle light show with thousands of our friends.
