    Hello Eli,

    What a great question!  Wishes Nighttime Spectacular is absolutely amazing and no matter how many times I see it, I still get goosebumps.  I love questions that let me do a little research to learn even more about some of my own favorites, so thanks for sending in this gem!

    After a little bit of digging, I was able to find an official information sheet on Wishes.  In addition to some fun details (like the fact that there are 683 individual pieces of pyrotechnics - wow!) it shows that the voice of Genie in the show is taken from the 1992 "Aladdin" movie, so I'd have to assume those lines were voiced by Robin Williams.  If so, what a wonderful tribute to his memory to hear him say, "Hello people, up here, come on, we've got some wishes to grant!" almost every night in the Magic Kingdom.

    Wishing you a magical day,

    Beth
