Breaking news! We have a return date for Happily Ever After!!!
Happily Ever After
As the D23 Parks panel opened, Jordan Fisher sang a fantastic rendition of “Happily Ever After,” the beloved fireworks spectacular’s theme song. Then, Josh D’Amaro announced Happily Ever After is returning to Walt Disney World in 2023!
Following that announcement, Disney clarified we were not going to be seeing the return of Happily Ever After like we thought. The announcement stated the song “Happily Ever After” will return to Walt Disney World as part of an updated nighttime spectacular. It is set to debut in 2023.
Here is what we know about the return of Happily Ever After in 2023. A new, updated nighttime spectacular will debut in Magic Kingdom next year. It will feature the song we know and love, “Happily Ever After.”
So what does this mean exactly? Happily Ever After is returning, but not in the exact format we are familiar with. We will likely see changes to some of the scenes we know and love. New and updated scenes may replace them.
Disney released so many great films since Happily Ever After debuted in 2017. Maybe we will see new Coco and Encanto additions to our beloved nighttime spectacular!
With the 50th anniversary ending on March 31, 2023 it seems logical to have the new Happily Ever After debut on April 1, 2023. Enchantment is likely to be touted as 50th anniversary nighttime show, which we think means it will end when the 50th celebration officially ends.
We shared our best guess for the return in this post. We were correct! Our best guess was that it would return in early April. Disney just confirmed the beloved fireworks show will return on April 3, 2023. The show will feature brand new projections down Main Street, U.S.A.
This also means Enchantment will be available for your viewing pleasure until April 2. We are happy that there will be no lapse in entertainment!
Happily Ever After returns to Magic Kingdom on April 3, 2023.
