    We trying to schedule our visits to each park as we don't have a park hopper. So if we want to see the Happily Ever After fireworks do we need to be in Magic Kingdom for that day? or can we watch it even if we are at a different park.

    Hello Zoraya,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great planning question. I am glad to hear that you are planning a great visit to the Walt Disney World Resort during the holiday season. It has always been one of my favorite times of year to enjoy the holiday atmosphere and decorations.

    Happily Ever After is one of my favorite nighttime spectaculars. Unfortunately, you cannot see it from any other Disney Theme Park, but you can see it from other Disney Resort Hotels in the area. Happily Ever After is not just a fireworks show. It is a story told with castle projections, beautiful music and pyrotechnics. I recently watched it from the balcony of my room at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa and I felt that I was missing out on some of my favorite castle projections. I would suggest that you plan to make the Magic Kingdom your park of the day that you plan to experience this wonderful production. Keep in mind that during the holiday season, the Magic Kingdom closes early on some evenings for Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party at 6:00 p.m. You will want to avoid those days because Happily Ever After will not be shown. I want to let you know that you can leave a park for a rest break and return to the exact same park if you have non-park hopper passes. I hope that helps with your planning and if you have any more questions, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
