    Are the fireworks still on

    Hi there, Jorge!

    It is with deepest pride and greatest pleasure that I welcome you to planDisney. And now I invite you to relax, let us pull up a chair, as Walt Disney World Resort once again proudly presents...FIREWORKS!!

    It was an exciting and momentous occasion last week when Walt Disney World Resort announced that fireworks would once again be lighting up the night skies over Cinderella Castle and World Showcase Lagoon, beginning July 1. I've SO missed the Nighttime Spectaculars during this time of Walt Disney World's phased reopening, and I was thrilled to hear about this piece of magic returning for Guests this summer. Of course, I quickly planned a July visit to Walt Disney World Resort to celebrate!

    On July 1, Guests will be able to close out a magical day at Magic Kingdom Park by enjoying Happily Ever After, a celebration of favorite Disney stories, old and new, that encourage you to grab hold of your dreams and make them come true. I can't wait to hear the gorgeous voice of Jordan Fisher, as he sings, "Ready to begin...let the wonder take hold...", as the castle lights up with gorgeous projections and bursts of light. The show includes some of my very favorite Disney songs, including "Out There" from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, "Go the Distance" from Hercules, and "Trashin' the Camp" from Tarzan. (I fell in love with the *NSYNC/Phil Collins version of this song!) Happily Ever After is the perfect finale to a pixie-dusted day at Magic Kingdom Park.

    Over in Epcot, nights will end with Epcot Forever, an awesome fireworks spectacular featuring music that celebrates the park's past, present and future. I literally cried tears of happiness the first time I saw the show and realized they'd included a song from one of my favorite Epcot memories - "Veggie, Veggie, Fruit, Fruit" from the long-retired Kitchen Kabaret. The best part of Epcot Forever, by far, are the "kites on fire" that circle World Showcase Lagoon during the show! I'm so happy this nighttime spectacular will be returning until the premiere of Epcot's future fireworks production, HarmoniUS, set to debut in the near future.

    July can't get here quick enough. I'm ready to celebrate a *sparkly summer* at Walt Disney World Resort, are you?
