As Disney Parks Blog explains, "In ‘Disney Enchantment,’ you’re inspired to believe in magic, with captivating Disney music, enhanced lighting, and immersive projection effects that extend – for the first time – from Cinderella Castle down Main Street, U.S.A. The evening extravaganza features stunning fireworks as well as an emotional original song, entitled "You Are the Magic," by eight-time GRAMMY-winner and former Walt Disney World cast member Philip Lawrence."

On Wednesday evening, viewers were treated to a sneak-peek of "Harmonious" at EPCOT, which Disney calls one of the largest nighttime spectaculars ever created for a Disney park.
