Just yesterday, we learned that Happily Ever After and EPCOT Forever would be returning to the theme parks, which is the first time that Guests will see fireworks since before the pandemic! Park reservations are already almost gone for Magic Kingdom on July 1 as Guests begin to celebrate the show’s big return, but we did not yet have times for either show.

Disney has updated their calendar to display when each show is debuting in terms of nightly times. It seems that Happily Ever After will run at 9:15 p.m. each night at Magic Kingdom, and EPCOT Forever will run once EPCOT closes at 10:00 p.m.

At the moment, Disney has only displayed the showtimes for the fireworks through July, so it will be interesting to see if showtime change month to month. According to the Disney World calendar, the newly extended July hours seem to go away in August, with Magic Kingdom closing at 9:00 p.m., before the current 9:15 p.m. time slot.

Regardless of the possibility of changing showtimes, we know that both shows will be running nightly, which is great news. At some point, we expect HarmonioUS to take over for EPCOT Forever at some point in the near future. No official debut date has been set for HamronioUS yet.
