    What is the difference between Happily Ever After fireworks/show at 8pm and Once Upon a Time fireworks/show at 7pm? We would like to see Tinkerbell, but have a dinner reservation at 8pm. I am wondering if I can go to Once Upon a time at 7:30pm?

    Hi Stephanie!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Once Upon a Time and Happily Ever After (presented by PANDORA Jewelry) are both amazing, magical shows that feature Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom Park. However, Once Upon a Time is more of a short 14-minute projection/musical production, while Happily Ever After would be considered the main featured nighttime fireworks show. Tinker Bell is known to show up as a special guest during Happily Ever After!

    I'm not sure where your dinner is, but you may be able to modify the reservation time if you definitely want to catch Happily Ever After. It's really a great show!

    I hope this helps!  Please
