    Hi!!! Is once upon a time 15 minutes before happily ever after or after the show?? Curious for planning😊

    Hi Kelly, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question.

    Based on my experience, I’ve found that Once Upon a Time is typically scheduled after Happily Ever After. The length of the gap varies; I’ve seen it as short as 15 minutes and as long as 30 minutes. So please make sure that you check Magic Kingdom Park’s hours before your vacation so that you can double check your planned timing!

    Oh and if you want the perfect place to see both shows, I highly recommend booking a Fireworks Dessert Party with Plaza Garden Viewing. You get a perfect view of the shows, without having to stake out a place for an hour beforehand and you get some delicious treats… what’s not to love?

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
