Believe... In Holiday Magic is a holiday fireworks show at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California. The show runs for much of the Disneyland Resort's holiday season, which typically runs from the third weekend of November to the first weekend of the following January.

History

In 2000, Disneyland premiered a fireworks show called Believe... There's Magic in the Stars to celebrate its 45th anniversary. The show was so successful in its first couple of months that the Disney decided to premiere a holiday version the following holiday season. This version fused together music from various classic Christmas songs in order to create a thirteen minute fireworks spectacular. The holiday version was very popular, especially the finale which culminated in "snow" falling in various areas of the park.

Believe... In Holiday Magic has run every holiday season since 2000, with the exception of the 2005 holiday season, when Disney opted to continue performing Remember... Dreams Come True in observance of the Disneyland Resort's 50th anniversary. In returning the show for the 2006 holiday season, Disney has updated it to include some of the pyrotechnic effects presented in Remember.... Most notable is the increased amount of pyrotechnics launched from Sleeping Beauty Castle. On November 16, 2007 New special effects were added to Sleeping Beauty Castle to be seen in Believe... In Holiday Magic.

The Show

Opening

The show begins with a young woman (as of the 2007 Christmas season) encouraging everyone to remember and believe in holiday magic:
"Does your heart hold the magic of the holidays? Is it filled with warm memories just waiting to be discovered again? Now is the time to open your heart, believe in that magic, and remember those treasured moments...they're still there, deep within you, waiting to touch you once more. So come along as the magic of the seasons leads the way."

  • AS of the 2007 season, the narrator was changed from an old woman's voice to a new younger voice which is believed to be Kellie Coffey.
  • There has been a change in some of the narration, The new voice does not include "Well now is the time to open your heart.."

or "Oh.. They're still there.."

Can You Remember

The song "Can You Remember", performed by country singer Kellie Coffey, begins after the woman finishes her speech. The lyrics are a Christmas version of the song "Remember the Magic", the theme song from Walt Disney World's 25th anniversary celebration performed by Brian McKnight.

Traditional Holiday Music

Following "Can You Remember" is the fanfare from the Mickey Mouse Club March, then instrumental excerpts from various Christmas carols and a Hanukkah song, including:

  • "March of the Wooden Soldiers"
  • "Toyland, Toyland"
  • "I Have a Little Dreidel"
  • "All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth"
  • "I'll Be Home for Christmas"
  • "O Holy Night"
  • "We Three Kings"
  • "Joy to the World"
  • "Silent Night"
  • "Carol of the Bells"
  • "Russian Dance (Nutcracker Suite)"
  • "Arabian Dance (Nutcracker Suite)"
  • "The Christmas Song"

Pyrotechnics Conclusion

After the excerpt from "The Christmas Song" is the conclusion to "Can You Remember", now sung by a chorus led by the female vocalist.

A short excerpt from "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" accompanies the final line of "Can You Remember." The woman's voice then says, "Cherish the holidays forever, and always believe", and concludes the pyrotechnics portion of the show.

White Christmas and Conclusion

The lights then return to normal and "magic snow" falls on guests on Main Street, USA, Small World Mall, and the Fantasmic! viewing area while a rendition of "White Christmas" plays. This rendition is performed by Kellie Coffey. The show concludes with the end of "White Christmas."

In 2007, Disney added over 80,000 LEDs onto Sleeping Beauty Castle to make it look like the castle has snow. In addition to that three snowfalls happen each night, one at the lighting of the castle, another after the nighttime parade, and the final one during the White Christmas segment of Believe... In Holiday Magic. Each Snowfall can be seen on Main Street, USA, Small World Mall, and the Fantasmic! viewing area.

One for the holiday themed version of It's A Small World entitled "it's a small world" Holiday and Disney's LuminAria which was a low-level fireworks show on Paradise Bay at Disney California Adventure Park in Anaheim, California.
