We’re just about six weeks away from the debut of the new nighttime fireworks spectacular “Happily Ever After” at Magic Kingdom Park.

Today we’re happy to share a new look into the creation of what will soon go down in Disney theme park history as one of the most elaborate nighttime shows ever created. It will feature the latest in fireworks, pyrotechnics and projection technology, plus fresh animation, a new score and theme song – all of which the creative team used as tools that together tell a story only Disney can tell. “Happily Ever After” will also feature (or reference) more Disney characters than any other show to date.

According to Executive Creative Director Michael Jung, the show will take park guests on a “hero’s journey” that encourages us to dream our biggest dream and never give up.

“Happily Ever After” will debut at Magic Kingdom Park on May 12. Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more information and future behind-the-scenes looks.


  • Who is the narrator in this show?

  • The score sounds amazing! I’d love the know where they get the vocal talent for the recordings. Do they do it locally?

  • Is there any chance of a Soundtrack to Happily Ever After? With a whole new score, both instrumental and vocal it’d be a nice way to keep the memory after seeing the show. And if not in a physical form, perhaps on iTunes?

  • Wow. This looks absolutely breath-taking! I can not wait to see guest reactions and then watch this for myself this November. I feel like this is going to become my favourite entertainment offering Disney offers. Though, it’s going to a hard battle against Fantasmic, but then, they are two different experiences, I guess? Can’t wait!
