Walt Disney World Resort will be altering the start time for one of its most popular, yet in many ways, controversial shows.

Disney Enchantment, the brand new nighttime firework spectacular, has been starting at 8 p.m. nightly for quite some time, but that will be changing soon.

According to Disney’s website, the firework spectacular will start at 9 p.m. on Valentine’s Day (February 14) and it is set to begin at 9 p.m. each night beginning March 13. This is largely due to Daylight’s Saving Time, but also can be attributed to Park Hours increasing as crowds begin to grow in the spring.

Disney’s official description of Enchantment reads:

An Incredible Journey Awaits

Be swept up in a world of wonder filled with friendship, love and fun as you watch this nighttime spectacular unfold. Inspiring everyone to believe in magic, Disney Enchantment will feature captivating Disney music, enhanced lighting, stunning fireworks and—for the first time—immersive projection effects that extend from Cinderella Castle down Main Street, U.S.A. at Magic Kingdom park.

Disney Enchantment is a brilliant centerpiece to The World’s Most Magical Celebration—celebrating the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort.
