Guests are piling into the theme parks at Walt Disney World now that fireworks and nighttime spectaculars have officially returned. Typically, you will see Guests claim their spot early around the hub in front of Cinderella Castle to get the perfect view of Happily Ever After — or around World Showcase Lagoon for EPCOT Forever.
However, a handful of Disney World Guests were able to spot both fireworks shows — at the same exact time!
Reddit user WannabeWalt shared a video last night (August 13) to the social media platform, along with the caption:
MK and Epcot fireworks at the same time
In the video, you can see Guests watching Happily Ever After from outside of the theme park at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. Before you know it, the video quickly pans to the other side of the Resort, where EPCOT’s fireworks — EPCOT Forever — could be seen also lighting up the night sky!
Not only did these Guests get to watch Magic Kingdom’s Happily Ever After, but also got to catch a glimpse of EPCOT Forever behind them, which if you ask me, is certainly a magical moment!
