Sometimes, it really does pay to spend the extra money for a Theme Park view room at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Resort, or Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa.

Walt Disney World Resort Guests appeared to have gotten a special preview of the Magic Kingdom’s returning fireworks spectacular, “Happily Ever After” in the early morning hours as Walt Disney Imagineers lit up the skies for a “closed” dress rehearsal after-hours.

It has been known for some time now that “Happily Ever After” will return to the skies over Cinderella Castle this April, replacing the current show, “Disney Enchantment,” after the close of Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary Celebration. But it has been almost 2 years since “Happily Ever After” took to the skies, and one Guest, @ericthomaschu, shared a video of the supposed test run he saw just after 1:00 a.m. on the morning of Monday, March 6.

While it is unconfirmed if it really is “Happily Ever After,” what is clear is that this Guest caught the fireworks from Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

Disney World may wait until the Theme Park closes to test the fireworks, but that does not mean that Guests do not see them. There are several Disney World Resort Hotels in the Magic Kingdom Resort Area, EPCOT Resort Area, and even Disney’s Animal Kingdom Resort Area where “Disney Enchantment,” “Harmonious,” and Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ “Wonderful World of Animation,” can be seen. There will not necessarily be audio/visual coordination from the hotels, but the spectacular fireworks add a little extra nighttime magic to your Disney Day.
