Based on a similar format used in the Fantasy in the Sky fireworks at other Disney theme parks, fireworks and pyrotechnics are co-ordinated to orchestrated classic Disney music such as "A Whole New World". The show opened on September 12, 2005, debuting at the park's nighttime inaugural ceremonies. From September 16, 2010 to October 31, 2010, Disney in the Stars was replaced by Disney's Nightmare in the Sky, a Halloween-themed fireworks performance.
In celebration of Hong Kong Disneyland's 10th anniversary, the show features Projection mapping onto Sleeping Beauty Castle in September 7, 2015 as the preview. The projections in each area are different in order to evenly distribute crowds and to encourage people to view the show multiple times from different locations. The show then progresses all-new scenes from Disney films, including; Frozen, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Peter Pan, The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, The Princess and the Frog, Tangled, Big Hero 6, Finding Nemo, Cars, Brave and Inside Out.
