It is definitely a “must see” when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. “Wishes” was awesome, and now its successor, “Happily Ever After” will carry the torch of nighttime entertainment for the next however many years. This is the next generation of high-tech, imagineering excellence, that will thrill millions of Disney guests to come.
