Happily Ever After Nighttime Spectacular
This new fireworks show is the most stunning show Disney has ever put on. “Happily Ever After” does not disappoint as it replaces the previous show, Wishes.
This 18 minute show takes place at the end of the day at the Magic Kingdom Park. This show is so much more than a few fireworks set to a soundtrack. It is going to be the highlight of your visit to Disney World.
Complete with lasers, lights, projections, and the newest state of the art fireworks – I guarantee you haven’t seen anything like this before.
10 minutes before the show, an overhead announcement is made throughout the park to notify guests that show will begin soon. It gives you a little warning so you can find a nice viewing spot.
I used to enjoy the Wishes show from behind the castle, but I recommend watching “Happily Ever After” on mainstreet or in Town Square. You want to be in front of the castle because of the unique projection images on the castle.
Many of your old favorites and new favorites are featured in this show! Little snippets from The Little Mermaid, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Brave, Moana, UP, Aladdin, Tarzan, The Lion King, Toy Story, The Jungle Book, Monsters Inc, Frozen, Tangled, Pirates of the Caribbean, Hercules, Peter Pan, the list goes on!
One of my favorite parts is when the movie “UP” is represented. The projection on the castle shows the house floating up and away with the hundreds of balloons. It’s simply magical.
*Huge Bonus* I love that they featured the Pirates of the Caribbean theme song. That is one of the best pieces of music ever composed for a disney movie. It’s iconic and so recognizable. I’m so glad they put it in there!
