'Happily Ever After' fireworks debut at Disney World's Magic Kingdom
May 12, 2017, 5:27 PM ·
Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom tonight debuted its new night-time fireworks and projection show, Happily Ever After.
The 18-minute nightly show features the expected fireworks blasts high above Fantasyland, complemented by an orchestral score of songs from multiple Disney films, including Aladdin, Brave, The Lion King, The Princess and the Frog, and Tarzan, as well as lasers and projection mapping on Cinderella Castle. Disney is live streaming the debut performance tonight. (*Update: The performance starts at 15:24 in this archive of the live stream.)
Happily Ever After presents a classic good versus evil story, presenting Disney animated heroes before introducing the villains that will challenge them. Don't despair, though, for the good team wins in the end, but not without blowing up what seems like an enormous amount of pyro in the process — as loyal fans expect at the end of their day in the Magic Kingdom.
