The Disney Enchantment fireworks show is returning to Magic Kingdom! But, fans of Happily Ever After don’t need to worry. The show is returning exclusively for Disney After Hours events at the park in 2024, and isn’t replacing the beloved Happily Ever After.
Guests who arrive early with an After Hours ticket at Magic Kingdom will be able to watch both Happily Ever After and Disney Enchantment in the same night.

After Hours events at Magic Kingdom will run from 10pm to 1am on select nights January 11 through April 8, 2024.
The return of Disney Enchantment is a bit of a surprise. The show had mixed-to-poor reviews with many feeling it failed as a 50th anniversary show for Walt Disney World and failed as a successor to Happily Ever After. It’s not a bad show, but it wasn’t a classic.
But, if Disney wants to roll out a fireworks show just for the After Hours nights without designing a brand new show, bringing back Disney Enchantment makes sense. The idea of seeing both shows in the same night should cover a lot of Enchantment’s shortcomings.
