    What time should I expect all the nighttime shows to be throughout May 2023? For example, Fantasmic in HS, fireworks in MK and Epcot?

    Planning our magical evenings around the fireworks spectaculars in the Disney Parks is an important part of any Walt Disney World Resort vacation! Rhiannon, I happen to know just the place to help you with your question! Let’s head to the Walt Disney World Resort website!

    The Walt Disney World Resort website knows that some Guests want to plan as much as possible! For that reason, Guests can find the start times for all of the fireworks spectaculars right on the website! When you arrive at the website enter the name of a fireworks spectacular in the search bar located at the top of the screen. The names you’ll want to search for are “Happily Ever After” (Magic Kingdom Park), “EPCOT Forever” (EPCOT), and “Fantasmic” (Disney’s Hollywood Studios).

    When you enter your search, you’ll see that each show will appear. You will also see a calendar icon with a date. If you hover over the calendar icon you can change the day to your preferred date for when you’d like to view the fireworks show! The showtime for that evening will appear. The website lists dates about two months in advance. So, as of today, Guests can view dates through the beginning of May 2023.

    Rhiannon, you’re visiting at such a great time for fireworks spectaculars! Fantasmic has returned to Disney’s Hollywood Studios with excellent reviews! And, fan favorites Happily Ever After and EPCOT Forever will both make their triumphant return to the parks on April 3, 2023! 

    Happy planning!
