    Do you know why is Wishes ending 5/11/17?

    Hi, Susan!

    Our beloved "Wishes" will retire on May 11, 2017, to make way for the new "Happily Ever After" fireworks show. This new Nighttime Spectacular at the Magic Kingdom will feature fireworks, new technology, projection, music and more. "Happily Ever After" will debut on May 12, 2017.

    Evenings in the Disney theme parks are so exciting with Illuminations: Reflections of Earth at Epcot, Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Rivers of Light at Disney's Animal Kingdom. I will certainly be needing mid-day naps so I can stay up late enough to enjoy all of this nighttime fun!

    Wishing you happy days and magical nights during your Walt Disney World vacation!
