Tonight is the night — Happily Ever After will show at Magic Kingdom for the very last time before it sparkles into Disney history 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.
Happily Ever After is a fan-favorite nighttime spectacular that debuted at Magic Kingdom on May 12, 2017. What makes this show so different from its predecessor, Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams, is that this nighttime show includes what Disney calls “projection mapping” on Cinderella Castle as well as lasers and searchlights, in addition to pyrotechnics. This is also something that will be included in the upcoming nighttime show, Disney Enchantment, which will officially debut to Guests on October 1, 2021.
The iconic song that plays during Happily Ever After is sung by Angie Keilhauer and Jordan Fisher. If you never had a chance to catch Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom, the official description reads:
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.
