Get ready, friends, because, on April 3rd, 2023, the beloved firework shows Happily Ever After & EPCOT Forever will return.

Well, I hope you’re “Ready to begin…” because fan-favorite nighttime spectacular “Happily Ever After” returns to Magic Kingdom Park on April 3rd, featuring all-new projections down Main Street, U.S.A. “Disney Enchantment” will be offered through April 2nd. Whether it’s your first time, or the park is your home away from home, get ready to reach out and find your happily ever after with us at Cinderella Castle soon.

And as we shared at D23 Expo in September, an all-new nighttime spectacular is planned to debut at EPCOT later this year. Before the new show launches, we will bring back “EPCOT Forever” as an interim show over the skies of World Showcase Lagoon starting April 3rd. Similar to how it appeared in 2021, “EPCOT Forever” is the perfect offering while our Entertainment team preps the Lagoon, including a phased removal of fireworks platforms following the final “Harmonious” performance on April 2nd. A limited-time spectacle of lasers, lighting, special effects, and fireworks, “EPCOT Forever” returns with a collection of songs that offer both a trip down memory lane and a look toward the future.

Wow, I am so excited to see these shows return; I have tears in my eyes just thinking about watching Happily Ever After once again. I never stopped and watched EPCOT Forever because I was busy grieving the loss of Illuminations, but now I am ready to see this nighttime spectacular.
