As we near the end of September, there are only a few more days to catch Happily Ever After before it officially retires.

In case you haven’t yet heard, Happily Ever After will “sparkle into Disney history” on September 29 to make way for a brand-new nighttime show called Disney Enchantment, which will debut on October 1 at Magic Kingdom in honor of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary.

Now, as we quickly approach September 29, we wanted to remind Disney World fans that there are only 11 days left to catch Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom.

Yes, you read that correctly — there are only 11 more days that Magic Kingdom will air Happily Ever After before it officially retires and makes way for the debut of Disney Enchantment on October 1.

If you plan on catching Happily Ever After before it “sparkles into Disney history”, keep in mind that the nighttime spectacular now has a new showtime. Instead of showing at 8:45 p.m., the nighttime spectacular will begin 30 minutes earlier — at 8:15 p.m.

If you plan to see Happily Ever After before its last performance on September 29, plan accordingly and continue to check the My Disney Experience app for the most up-to-date information and showtimes.
