Happily Ever After

Disney Updates Website to “Happily Ever After – Last Chance To See The Show”

Sadly, here’s some news it seems like no one wants to hear. When Walt Disney World announced the exciting return of several Disney fan favorite entertainment experiences next month, they happened to slide in a little note about fireworks that took social media by storm. While we were singing praises for the return of Wonderful World of Animation, Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage, Turtle Talk with Crush, and Monster, Inc. Laugh Floor – we were also surprised to see Happily Ever After is ending… for good.

In case you missed it, Disney announced: “We also recently announced that all-new nighttime spectaculars “Disney Enchantment” and “Harmonious” would be debuting October 1 as part of The World’s Most Magical Celebration. That means this summer is also your last chance to come out and catch the current fireworks shows before they sparkle into Disney history. “EPCOT Forever” will conclude its limited-time run on September 28, and you have until September 29 to take in the spectacle of “Happily Ever After” at Magic Kingdom Park.”

When we posted the news of Happily Ever After ending permanently the response was overwhelmingly, “WHY?” “NO Disney!” And even “this is FAKE NEWS”. Well, sorry to say that if the initial announcement from Disney wasn’t enough confirmation, Disney has updated their website to show “Happily Ever After – Last Chance To See The Show” as shown in the screenshot below:

Sorry, it’s really happening Disney fans. While we knew “Happily Ever After” would be taking a backseat to Magic Kingdom’s new nighttime spectacular, “Disney Enchantment“, for the 50th anniversary celebration lasting 18-months, we figured “Happily Ever After” would possibly return after the celebration ended. Unfortunately, that will not be the case.

Mark your calendars as September 29 will be the final show of “Happily Ever After”. In the meantime, we’ll be sure to share any new information received about “Disney Enchantment”.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
