Walt Disney World is taking a page out of Tokyo Disneyland’s book for their new nighttime projection show. “Once Upon A Time” will make its debut in the Magic Kingdom on Nov. 4, replacing the classic “Celebrate the Magic” show fans have come to know and love.

According to the Disney Parks Blog, in the new show, “Mrs. Potts from ‘Beauty and the Beast’ shares bedtime stories with Chip, taking them (and all of us) on a magical trip through the most adventurous scenes from favorite Disney films like ‘Cinderella,’ ‘Peter Pan,’ ‘Alice in Wonderland’ and ‘The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.'” Scenes will include Peter Pan’s magical journey from London to Never Land, the Mad Hatter’s curious tea party and the fateful duel between Gaston and the Beast. The show (and bedtime story) ends with a colorful projection of characters from Disney films over the years.

The show uses projection mapping technology, as does “Celebrate the Magic” to create an immersive, 3D-like experience. The show covers Cinderella’s Castle and prepares guests for the Wishes fireworks show. “Celebrate the Magic,” which first opened in the Magic Kingdom in 2012, is set to end its run on Nov. 3. Various editions of the nighttime show have included a romance edition, summer edition, a holiday edition and even a villain edition.

This isn’t the first major change Disney has made to its nighttime lineup of shows. In August, they announced that the Main Street Electrical Parade was ending its run. This month, Disney also announced that Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights would be replaced by the new holiday spectacular, “Jingle Bell, Jingle BAM!” The holiday show will feature projections, snow, music, fireworks and, of course, magic.
