What is the Magic Kingdom Park fireworks show at Disney?
Magic Kingdom hosts an 18-minute fireworks show every day, with lasers and projections display, around the incredible Cinderella Castle, the most famous spot in this park. The show is called “Happily Ever After”, and “draws in the sky” traditional Disney characters, such as Mickey’s friends, and new ones, such as Moana, Valente, Big Hero, Zootopia, the Princess and the Frog, and Aladdin. Both the fireworks and the setting are incredible, not to mention the background music. It’s a super production! Disney knows, like no one else, to stir people’s emotions and create a magical moment.
Happily Ever After infos
The Happily Ever After fireworks show is intended to “close with a flourish” your experience of spending a day at Magic Kingdom park. It’s a very exciting and beautiful moment. Fireworks shows usually take place around 9:00 pm or 10:00 pm, close to the park’s closing time. You can check the show time on the day of your visit by looking at the Disney website (available in Portuguese), on the flyer you pick up at the park entrance, or through the Disney app.
Best spots to see the Magic Kingdom Fireworks Show at Disney
The first tip to see the Magic Kingdom fireworks in the best possible way is to get there early. As the park is super crowded during the day, and everyone wants to enjoy this spectacle at night, people tend to settle down near the castle much earlier. If possible, try to arrive about an hour in advance, to choose a good place and then sit down to wait for the show.
Below, we show an average of the best spots to see the show. The green area is the best of all, as it is exactly at the center. It’s right between Casey’s ice cream parlor and Plaza Restaurant. Another good spot is the purple area at the end (or beginning, depending on the perspective of the map) of Main Street USA, which is the entrance or exit to the park. There you are farther away from the castle, but close to the train station. The location is ideal for those who want to leave right after the fireworks, and avoid the HUGE flow of people leaving the park.
Avoid getting behind the castle, in the red area. There, the fireworks end up being misaligned, as the show was created and designed to be viewed from the front, that is, at any point on Main Street USA.
Firework Shows at Other Disney Parks in Orlando
The other Disney parks also have fireworks shows, all super fun and worth checking out. Disney Hollywood Studios, Disney Epcot Center and Disney Animal Kingdom have different shows – the first is a newer show, with a Star Wars theme; the second talks about the land and the union of peoples; and the third is the most recent, with an animalistic and super technological theme. All are amazing fireworks that mix music, impressive projections and special effects, Disney characters and a lot of emotion.
