Some characters include Tiana, Miguel, Joe Gardner from Pixar’s “Soul,” Rapunzel, Moana, Raya and brothers Ian and Barley from “Onward.”

Officials said the show will take guests beyond the ordinary, to a land of magic, where they’re swept up in a world of wonder, filled with friendship, love and fun.

Disney said during one part of the show, guests will see a whimsical world that is inspired by the style of legendary Disney artist Mary Blair, who is best known for her work in “Alice in Wonderland,” “Cinderella” and the classic Disney attraction “It’s a Small World.”

The entire show builds up to an incredible fireworks finale that is complete with Tinker Bell taking flight.

“Since opening day in 1971, dazzling fireworks shows have provided that perfect exclamation point at the end of a fantastic day at Magic Kingdom Park,” said Mark Renfrow, show director at Disney Live Entertainment. “From ‘Fantasy in the Sky’ and ‘Wishes,’ to holiday spectaculars and ‘Happily Ever After,’ each new show has raised the bar, and the best is yet to come! I can’t wait for everyone to see what we’re creating with ‘Disney Enchantment.’”
