    Hi! I am excited about the news that Frozen Holiday Surprise will happen nightly during the holiday season! Will Happily Ever After still happen on nights when there is no Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party?

    Welcome to planDisney, Ashley, and let me be the first to offer you a Merry Christmas this (very early) holiday season! 

    Ashely, just as Olaf famously said, "I've always loved the idea of summer, and sun, and all things hot!”, I love the holiday season at Walt Disney World! The gingerbread houses, decorations down Main Street, U.S.A., and now, the new Frozen Holiday Surprise all make me happier than a warm hug! I can't wait to see Cinderella Castle lit up with (Frozen) holiday cheer!

    Now, Ashley, while Frozen-themed lights sound Magical, my favorite fireworks show of all is Happily Ever After, so I appreciate your question. On nights when Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is NOT scheduled, you can still enjoy this iconic show. Make sure to pack your tissues, because even after all this time, I still get a little misty as the music plays and the skies light up. Ashley, you can check showtimes in advance on the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Currently Happily Ever After is scheduled for 8:00 PM on November 11th and 12th, 2023 (times subject to change). You will also be able to see times to view the Frozen Holiday Surprise show once those are released. 

    I hope this helps and has you... "Ready to begin..." as you're looking ahead to holiday fun at Walt Disney World. If you have any additional questions, please come on back to planDisney. 

    Wishing you a wonderful visit!
