    during our stay happily ever after is only happening on the day we were plannin on doing animal kingdom. are u able to see the show without entering the magic kingdom? where do u suggest we see it wo coming in?

    Hello Susan!
    I absolutely love the new Happily Ever After Nighttime Fireworks Spectacular in the Magic Kingdom Park! I had the opportunity to see Happily Ever After in May and June of 2017 and it was simply amazing. If you you do not have the Park Hopper Option on your Walt Disney World tickets then you will have to watch Happily Ever After from a place outside the Magic Kingdom Park because you are planning on using your park tickets to enter Disney's Animal Kingdom on that particular day.  The two best places that I have found for watching Magic Kingdom firework shows from outside the Magic Kingdom Park are the beach at Disney's Polynesian Village Resort and the Ferry Boat Launch at the Ticket and Transportation Center (the TTC). Keep in mind that these two locations are farther away from Cinderella Castle in the Magic Kingdom Park so you will definitely see the large fireworks and lasers but you may miss the projections on Cinderella Castle and some of the lower fireworks. My recommendation to you is to purchase the Park Hopper Option for your tickets so you can see Happily Ever After from inside the Magic Kingdom Park to get the full effect of this awesome nighttime spectacular.  I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is truly magical in every way!

    Keep Dreaming Big!
