Watch Walt Disney World’s New Fireworks Show “Happily Ever After” Online

The newest fireworks show, Happily Ever After, debuted at the Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World on Friday, May 12th, 2017.  This new show replaced Wishes, which had a 14 year run at the park.  Disney Parks Blog held a live stream of the show for guests to be a part of the big debut.  If you missed it, have no fear, as you can still catch the video online so that you can see what everyone has been talking about.  We have the video link for here for you if you want to check out!


Happily Ever After debut:

This new nighttime spectacular is presented by PANDORA jewelry and appears to have captivated guests so far.  It is the 3rd firework show to be presented in the history of the park, excluding the themed holiday shows.  Magic Kingdom was jam packed with guests there for the debut and the crowds are expected to return throughout the weekend with the park possibly closing to capacity in the evening.  It has been described as 4th of July levels of crowds.

Disney also confirmed that that Halloween and Christmas fireworks will be performed as normal this year, but with the possibility that there will be changes next year, so it may be the last year you can see the versions as they are if you are a fan of those shows.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
