Remember... Dreams Come True was a fireworks display commemorating the 50th anniversary of Disneyland. Described as an "E ticket in the sky", the show features fireworks, lower level pyrotechnics, isopar flame effects, projections and lasers set to the soundtracks of some of Disneyland's most famous rides and shows. It was created as an homage to Disneyland, its lands and attractions, and its continuing legacy.

The show was produced by Walt Disney Creative Entertainment, under direction of VP Parades and Spectaculars Steve Davison and fireworks designer Eric Tucker.

The show was offered seasonally since 2009, showing Remember... Dreams Come True from winter to spring, Magical: Disney's New Nighttime Spectacular of Magical Celebrations during the summer time, Disney's Celebrate America: A 4th of July Concert in the Sky during the first week of July, Halloween Screams during Fall, and Believe... In Holiday Magic during December. The final performance of Remember... Dreams Come True was on November 2, 2014. On February 3, 2017, the display will return to Disneyland for a regular run.[1]

Conclusion

The conclusion is also provided by Julie Andrews. She tells the audience that Disneyland has grown to become the "Happiest Place on Earth". The song "wishes" plays and Tinker Bell comes back for a return flight. The show ends in a cavalcade of fireworks then Julie Andrews says "Remember...Dreams Come True!". After the show the song "Remember When" performed by LeAnn Rimes is played throughout the park. This song was the official song of the Happiest Homecoming on Earth, celebrating the 50th anniversary of Disneyland and Disney Parks worldwide. For Christmas in 2005, however, while Disneyland opted to continue with Remember... Dreams Come True for the 50th anniversary, the snowfall finale still returned and the song "White Christmas"; both from Believe... In Holiday Magic; would be played instead of "Remember When" by LeAnn Rimes with Julie Andrews commenting that the most special time for believing in dreams is during the holidays with family and friends.

Soundtrack

The entire soundtrack to the show can be found on A Musical History of Disneyland and on The Official Album of the Disneyland Resort. The soundtrack reappeared on the Official Album for the Year of a Million Dreams with new narration to coincide with the end of the 50th Anniversary. The score was arranged by Greg Smith.

This fireworks show was also used during the 2006 and 2007 Grad Nite programs - the show itself remained almost unchanged except for the soundtrack being replaced with one consisting primarily of contemporary music (different each year) and projection to match it. The show is renamed to Grad Nite Explosion for these events and runs for approximately 10 minutes at 1:00am and 3:00am. Video screens along with additional lighting effects are also added on either side of the hub (already in place as part of Club KIIS).
