Disney to live stream Happily Ever After fireworks premiere

May 9, 2017, 11:58 AM · Want to be among the first to see the new Happily Ever After fireworks show, which debuts this Friday night at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom? Sure, but what if you can't get to Orlando, or don't want to fight the crowds that inevitably show up for any Disney theme park premiere?

Disney has you covered. The company announced today that it will live stream a broadcast of the premiere performance, starting at 8:50 pm ET on the Disney Parks Blog. (We will embed the video here, too, once it becomes available. *Update: Here it is!)

Granted, watching a fireworks show on your computer or mobile device isn't the same as watching it in person. (Or is it? How many people have you seen watching the fireworks through their cell phone screens in the park? I lost count a loooong time ago.) But the online broadcast might provide a better view of the castle projections that feature prominently in the show, yet might not be as easily viewable from anywhere but the jam-packed front of the hub in the park.

Happily Ever After combines fireworks with lasers, a new theme song, and what Disney says is its most advance projection mapping show yet. The show replaces the nightly Wishes fireworks, which ends its long run on Thursday evening.
