    Mickey Mouse spotted loitering in the sky during Wishes!

    Greetings, I'm back with what I feel is a special treat.

    serendipity
    –noun
    1.an aptitude for making desirable discoveries by accident.
    2.good fortune

    I've mentioned several times my love of Wishes! and photography in general (e.g. Capturing the Blue Fairy). In preparation for trips to the World, I did a lot of research into the various fireworks presented at Disney parks around the world. One thing I never understood is why Wishes! at the Magic Kingdom has never incorporated the spectacular Mickey Mouse burst from Remember Dreams Come True from Disneyland. There is photographic evidence that this particular fireworks pattern has been shot off before on the Orlando property, so I can't believe that it's not physically possible to achieve. For me, this would be a simple plus to apply to an already wonderful show.

    Well, on my last trip, I got about as close to this happening in Orlando as could be without the Mickey burst being added officially to the show. What made it possible was nothing by blind stupid luck or serendipity.

    I usually don't like heavily Photoshopped pictures; but, this was one of the moments I think a little application of the clone stamp tool pays off.

    First the unedited version as it played out in real life.



    After a bit of help from Photoshop, the sight that I hope one day will grace the skys above the Kingdom.

    I guess somedays, it's better to be lucky than it is in Anaheim.

    Re: Mickey Mouse spotted loitering in the sky during Wishes!

    I remember once seeing the show from the Tomorrowland bridge and the guy next to me had his camera ready because "they have a Mickey Mouse shaped firework", he said to his family. I didn't have the heart to tell him it was only done in California.

    In a way though, it's kind of neat that this is done only at Disneyland. It has been a signature feature of fireworks since 2000's Believe...There's Magic In The Stars and has been in every show since if I remember right.

    Something else just popped into my head, when I was at Tokyo Disneyland watching Winter Magic in the Sky, I was surprised to see their own Mickey Mouse shaped fireworks!

    Theirs actually formed Mickey Mouse's entire profile: ears, head, mouth and nose! Only a few came out perfectly, they launched several.
