Jordan Fisher has spent the last few weeks speaking out about his nostalgia for the Happily Ever After fireworks show at Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort. The beloved show was retired in September 2021 and replaced with Disney Enchantment.
Though fans were uncertain when Happily Ever After replaced Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams as Magic Kingdom’s official Cinderella Castle firework show in 2017, it quickly touched the hearts of Disney Parks Guests. Some Walt Disney World fans were hopeful that Enchantment would have a similarly positive reception, but unfortunately, many were disappointed. A few devoted Disney Parks fans even started a petition to bring back Happily Ever After.
