One of the many highlights of a Disney vacation is the incredible fireworks shows that the theme parks show on a nightly basis. However, those nighttime spectaculars have been on hiatus since the theme parks reopened after the pandemic shutdown — until now.

Fireworks are returning to both Disneyland and Disney World — Disneyland fireworks will return on July 4 and Guests will be able to watch the fireworks at Disney World on July 1. In celebration of the Happily Ever After fireworks returning to the Walt Disney World Resort, Disney World gave a special preview to the true magic makers — Disney World Cast Members.

Once it returns on July 1, Happily Ever After will be happening every night — weather permitting — until Disney World begins its 50 Anniversary celebration on October 1. At that time, a new fireworks show called Disney Enchantment will premiere at the Magic Kingdom. The Disney Enchantment show will run through the anniversary celebration, which ends in 2023.

Happily Ever After premiered at Disney’s Magic Kingdom in 2017, replacing the show Wishes that was at the Magic Kingdom for 13 years. Happily Ever After embraces all that is good and the power that Disney makes you feel and puts it into one absolutely incredible show.

Go on a dazzling journey of color, light and song that captures the heart, humor and heroism of favorite Disney animated films. Watch in awe as Cinderella Castle becomes part of the story by magically transforming through amazing state-of-the art projection technology you have to see to believe.

This astounding fireworks extravaganza uses lights, lasers and special effects, plus a soaring score featuring contemporary versions of beloved Disney songs.

Discover the magic of movies—and be inspired to find your own happily ever after.
