    Hello, Can you please advise if Happily Ever After fireworks show will be closed Jan/ Feb 24? When viewing the calendar it is saying not available and looks like it’s closed Nov/ Dec 23 too? Thank you, Natalie

    Hi Natalie, welcome to planDisney!

    Fireworks are a must-do on my family's Walt Disney World Resort vacations. My children fell in love with Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios on our last trip and proudly declared it their favorite nighttime spectacular. They especially loved the VIP experience and amazing seats that came with our Fantasmic! Dining Package. My heart belongs to Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom Park. Inspirational Disney storytelling covers Cinderella Castle, extends up Main Street, U.S.A., and takes to the skies with a soundtrack of beloved Disney melodies.    

    The Park Hours and Events Calendar is currently available through late October, but rest assured Happily Ever After will be showing during your January/February 2024 travel dates. In my experience, park hours and events are typically posted two and a half months in advance. Even posted times are subject to change, however, so it's especially important to check the calendar in the weeks leading up to your vacation. Guests visiting Magic Kingdom Park in October, for example, should note that Happily Ever After does not take place on nights that Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party takes place. Generally speaking, Magic Kingdom Park fireworks have an earlier showtime in January/February than during the summer months. Last January, for reference, Disney Enchantment took place in Magic Kingdom Park at 8:15 p.m. most nights. 

    The Happily Ever After experience can be "plussed" with one of the Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties. My husband thoroughly enjoyed the extra elbow room and front-row seats that came with Seats and Sweets. Cherished UK-based Guests can inquire about reservations for Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties up to 60 days in advance by speaking with a Cast Member at the Tours, Recreation number

    Thanks for making planDisney part of your vacation-planning team, Natalie. Stop by and see us again soon!
