At Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire, look for Tiana and friends from The Princess and the Frog. Not only that, but you’ll see Rapunzel and Flynn from Tangled perform their favorite tunes. Mickey even recruits Olaf, Anna, and Elsa from Frozen to join in! 

This is such a fun show that is offered throughout the day at Magic Kingdom. Currently, this stage show is offered at 10:00 am, 11:10 am, 12:45 pm, 1:45 pm, and a final performance at 4:00 pm.

Finally, the last schedule change will happen a bit later. Currently, Happily Ever After is offered nightly at 8:00 pm. As the seasons change, so do the showtimes for Happily Ever After.

On March 10th, we spring forward for Daylight Savings Time in Central Florida. This date also changes the showtime for Happily Ever After to shift to 8:30 pm.

Happily Ever After changes to an 8:30 pm showtime on March 10, 2024.

As always showtimes can be adjusted throughout the day. Be sure to check the My Disney Experience and Character Locator for daily showtimes during your trip to Walt Disney World.
