It appears that Happily Ever After fireworks were tested late on Sunday night at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World. Could the show’s test hint at what we can expect from the show when it returns on April 3rd?

According to Kenny the Pirate, the show’s test made it appear as though the original pyrotechnics could be returning. Those pyrotechnics were reportedly missing from the show when it was first brought back after the pandemic closure. He also states that the title song was left untouched.

For folks like you and I who may overlook the details on things like this because we’re too teary-eyed singing along with the tune that pulls on our heartstrings, maybe we’ll be able to see the difference when the show makes its much-anticipated return.
