    Hi! We are excited to see the Happily Ever After fireworks! We will spend the day at Animal Kingdom. We have ParkHopper passes. If PH is available from 2p-7p, and the fireworks start at 8p, does that mean we need to be at Magic Kingdom by 7p? Thanks!

    Hi Matthew! Thanks so much for reaching out to me at planDisney! I'm happy to answer your question today.

    If you are looking at the calendar and the particular park you are visiting lists hours for Park Hopper Availability, those are usually the hours you can hop to that particular park. Usually, Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park closes earlier than the other parks, which is why the Park Hopper Availability would be listed as earlier than Magic Kingdom Park's operating hours. As long as Magic Kingdom Park is open past 7 p.m. and you have a theme park ticket with the Park Hopper Option and a Theme Park Reservation for your first park of the day (required for all Guests until January 9, 2024), you should have no problem entering Magic Kingdom Park for Happily Ever After! If you are going within the next few months, just make sure that the fireworks that are taking place aren't for a special after-hours event like Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party or Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party because you would need a separate ticket to enjoy those fireworks. If there's a time listed for Happily Ever After, you should be good with your Park Hopper ticket!

    Have you seen Happily Ever After yet? It's my favorite of the nighttime spectaculars at the Walt Disney World Resort so far. I say "so far" because those Imagineers are always outdoing themselves! In fact, the brand-new nighttime spectacular "Luminous the Symphony of Us" is debuting on December 5, 2023, in EPCOT. Maybe this one will be my new favorite? World Showcase Lagoon is one of my favorite locations at the resort so we shall see!

    Matthew, enjoy your time at the resort and Happily Ever After! I hope it fills you with as much hope as it does for me. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out.
