(Music begins with “Wishes” theme.)
Good evening, this is Julie Andrews. Once upon a time, there was a Magic Kingdom made of hopes and childhood fantasies. A timeless place, where every land was filled with wonder. A place where everyone who entered its gates would be given the gift of the young at heart — the power to wish upon a star and unlock its magic. Are you ready to wish upon a star? Then it’s time to open your heart and remember… dreams come true.
Star light, star bright,
First star I see tonight.
I wish I may, I wish I might
Have the wish I wish tonight.
We’ll make a wish, and do as dreamers do.
Do as dreamers do.
And all our wishes…
All our wishes…
Will come true.
When you wish upon a star,
Makes no difference who you are!
Anything your heart desires will come to you.
In 1955, a magical place was born, and in this marvelous kingdom, there lived many delightful friends who made our dreams come true. An enchanting place where storybook heroes and daring adventures waited around every corner.
If your heart is in your dreams…
I wish I could go to the ball!
I’m wishing… someday, my prince will come!
No request is too extreme!
(Laughs.) I wish — oh, I wish I could be part of that world!
I wish we’d never have to grow up. Off to Neverland! Haha!
When you wish upon a star,
As dreamers do.
Look Jiminy! Someday, I wish I could be a real boy!
Genie, I wish for your freedom!
Tonight, we’re going to share a wonderful dream come true together. In 1955, an amazing man named Walt Disney dreamt of a Magic Kingdom.
(TINKER BELL flies from Matterhorn.)
To all who come to this happy place, welcome! Disneyland is your land. Here age relives fond memories of the past, and here youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future. Disneyland is dedicated to the ideals, the dreams, and the hard facts that have created America, with the hope that it will be a source of joy and inspiration for all the world.
(Train whistle sounds.)
Your attention, please! The Disneyland Limited now leaving for a grand circle tour of the Magic Kingdom. Board!
(Music changes to ragtime anthem. Music changes to Main Street Electrical Parade theme.)
Disneyland’s Main Street Electrical Parade!
(Music changes to Enchanted Tiki Room theme.)
Ole! Ole! It’s chowtime!
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room,
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room…
All the birds sing words,
And the flowers croon,
In the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room!
Oh my goodness!
(Music turns ominous as thunder claps.)
The gods have been angered by all the celebratin’!
(Music transitions to Indiana Jones Adventure theme. Fire effects.)
As you enter the Chamber of Destiny, do not look into the eyes of the idol!
(Music changes to Indiana Jones theme. Music changes to Haunted Mansion theme.)
Welcome, foolish mortals, to the Haunted Mansion. I am your host — your Ghost Host. Is this haunted room actually stretching…
Or is it your imagination? This chamber has no windows and no doors. (Laughs.) Which offers you this chilling challenge: to find a way out! (Laughs.)
Of course, there’s always my way.
(Thunder claps. Music changes to “Grim Grinning Ghosts.”)
Serpents and spiders, tail of a rat, call in the spirits, wherever they’re at! Rap on a table — it’s time to respond. Let there be music from regions beyond!
Hurry back. Hurry back. Be sure to bring your death certificate (Laughs.)
Dead men tell no tales.
(Music changes to Pirates of the Caribbean theme.)
Hike your colors, you bloomin’ cockroaches! Stand by at your guns… Fire at will!
(Cannon fire. Fireworks as the battle continues.)
Avast, you scurvy scum! Hold ’em lads, hold ’em! Ay, that’ll show the bilge rats! Another broadside, and you goes down with the tide! Surrender, you lily-livered lubbers! Put up your white flag!
(Train whistle sounds. “Wishes” theme begins again.)
Wishes, dream a dream.
Wishes, set them free!
(Music transitions to “Shenandoah.”)
VULTURE (from Splash Mountain)
So, you’re looking for a laughin’ place, eh?
(Sounds of BR’ER FOX, BR’ER BEAR, and BR’ER RABBIT laughing. Music changes to “Everybody’s Got a Laughin’ Place.”)

C’mon, everybody — here we goooooooo!

Red-24, I’m going in. Cover me!
(Sounds of blasters and droids. Fireworks and laser effects.)
Hey, sorry folks. I’m sure it’ll go better next time. It was my first flight, and I’m still getting used to my programming!
(Star Tours music climaxes and goes silent. Music changes back to “Wishes” theme.)
Today, Walt Disney’s Magic Kingdom has grown to become the “Happiest Place on Earth” to millions the world over. A place where anything is possible — where every dreamer may wish upon a star.
(TINKER BELL flies around the castle.)
Wishes! Dream a dream. (Fate is kind.)
Wishes! Set it free. (She brings to those who love…)
Wishes! Trust your heart. (The sweet fulfillment of…)
Just believe (Their secret longing.)
Like a bolt out of the blue,
Fate steps in and sees you through!
When you wish upon a star,
Your dreams come true.
Make a wish, and do as dreamers do.
Just do as dreamers do.
Make a wish!
Dream a dream!
Trust your heart!
And your wish will come true!
Remember… dreams come true.
