We then headed over to the area in front of The Chinese Theatre to stake out a spot for Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular – the firework show themed around the beloved series of movies.
I am not sure if these fireworks are being shown now (I think they stopped during the worldwide panini) or if they stopped once Galaxy’s Edge opened, but if you ever got a chance to see the show, you know how awesome it was!
It was not only fireworks, but also fire, fog effects, lasers, and projections mapped onto the buildings around this area. It feels really immersive and is a must-watch in our opinion!
While I held our spots, Steve went to go and buy us dinner from Dockside Diner – a quick service location inside the large boat on Echo Lake.

Disney Movie Magic
Prior to the Star Wars fireworks was the 10-minute projection show, Disney Movie Magic. As the name suggests is a project of scenes and characters from popular Disney movies over the years, set to music.
Fall in love all over again with unforgettable characters and cherished stories. After the sun sets, a compilation of favorites flickers across the iconic façade of Grauman’s Chinese Theatre at the park.
During this 10-minute treat, you’ll enjoy memorable scenes from Indiana Jones and the Pirates of the Caribbean series, plus many more. Be swept away all over again!
