Are Fireworks Returning to Walt Disney World in July?


Happily Ever After: Google

Earlier today we noticed that a date has been placed on google for the return of Happily Ever After. After much research we have not found a statement or response to this from Walt Disney World.


Walt Disney World has not stated whether they will be providing a night time spectacular during the 50th celebration. The 18 month long celebration will entail a lot of changes and updates. You can find out more here in this article (50th Anniversary Plans Revealed!) about the celebration and what it will entail. With that in mind we have already seen many changes in place. Some of these changes are more character dining experiences, more physically distanced character meet and greets. A few other updates we have seen in the last few weeks are no more temperature screenings, photos with out face coverings and no face coverings while outside except for line queues.

The return of Happily Ever After would be a wonderful change and step in the right direction for Walt Disney World in returning more magic for guests. However we do understand that safety is above all else and the number one priority for Disney and they are taking guest safety very seriously. Disney did announce this month that Special Ticketed events will be returning like the all new Halloween-Themed ‘Disney After Hours BOO BASH’ Coming to the Magic Kingdom Park this Fall, Disney did make a point to make sure that a firework spectacular was not going to be taking place at this event. Typically if a firework spectacular is going to be taking place it is listed under the entertainment of the event. We have not seen anything listed for the 50th anniversary celebration or the all new Boo Bash event.

We do hope to hear from Walt Disney World very soon on this topic as we do miss the nightly firework spectaculars, they have been missed by all this past year and with so many exciting events coming up we do hope that they will be returning soon. You can however watch a previously recorded showing of Happily Ever After while staying at a Disney Resort so make sure to tune in while on your stay!  


As we hear more on this topic we will be sharing it with all of you so stay tuned!
