Believe... In Holiday Magic is a holiday fireworks show at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, launched in 2000.[1] The show runs for much of the Disneyland Resort's holiday season, which typically runs from the second 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 Disney decided to premiere a holiday version the following holiday season. This version used music from various classic Christmas songs together 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 and 2015 holiday season, when Disney opted to continue performing Remember... Dreams Come True in observance of the Disneyland Resort's 50th anniversary and Disneyland Forever in observance of the Disneyland Resort's 60th Diamond Celebration.

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. In the 2010 holiday season, castle lighting was changed and searchlights used for Magical and Halloween Screams were added into the show.

For the 2016 holiday season, following the conclusion of Disneyland's 60th Diamond Celebration, projection mapping on Sleeping Beauty Castle was added for certain segments of this show using the same technology that was installed for Disneyland Forever. The searchlights that appear on either side of Sleeping Beauty Castle, which were also installed for Disneyland Forever (initially using Magical searchlights technology) were also implemented in certain portions of this show beginning in the 2016 holiday season.

In 2017, the Main Street USA projections and Rivers of America water screen, also installed for Disneyland Forever, were also implemented in the show.

In 2019 holiday season, the show has returned with some of the elements formerly presented for Mickey's Mix Magic and recently returned Disneyland Forever, which most notable of that is the increased amount of small-sized firework shells on top of the rooftops of It's a Small World and Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway.

The show was cancelled for 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing closure of Disneyland Park amid a regional stay at home order issued by California Governor Gavin Newsom.

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."

"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:

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.

"Christmas Songs" 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 Bing Crosby and composed by Irving Berlin from “Very Merry Christmas Sing Along Songs” and it was released in November 2002. The show concludes with the end of "White Christmas", and "Jingle Bells" plays. This rendition is performed by Mickey Mouse, and the gang and composed by James Lord Pierpont from “The Twelve Days of Christmas Sing Along Songs” and it was released in September 1993. The show concludes with the end of "Jingle Bells", and "The Best Christmas of All" plays. It was composed by Kevin Quinn[disambiguation needed] from "Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse" and it was released in November 2001. The show concludes with the end of "The Best Christmas of All", and "O Holy Night" plays. This rendition is performed by NewSong and it was composed by Adolphe Charles Adam and arranged by David T. Clydesdale from the album "The Christmas Shoes" it was released in October 2001. While the boys are dancing with red, yellow and green worship flags and the girls are dancing with white praise dance streamers in the stage and the setting up the disco ball in the ceiling and with white pinspot it works now! Lights on check it works! Yeah! While the show concludes with the end of "O Holy Night".

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 (Original show was removed in ???? and replaced with a new show in ????, a snowfall happens during the ring the bells sequence), 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 (RTB), Small World Mall (RTB), and the Fantasmic! viewing area. (RTB) = Something plays a big role during the ring the bells sequence (The Wreaths on Main Street, USA And The Light Towers By Small World Mall)
