Disney Enchantment—Magic Kingdom

We won’t deny it. It was sad to see Disney’s Happily Ever After fireworks show leave the Magic Kingdom 😭, but luckily a NEW show has replaced it!

We 💙 fireworks

Along with the fireworks came dessert parties and more sweets! We’ve got FULL reviews of the dessert parties (including the ones that take place before the fireworks, during the fireworks, and after the fireworks).

Harmonious — EPCOT

Over in EPCOT, Harmonious now lights up the World Showcase every night in a stunning display full of projections, water effects, a unique soundtrack, and more! (Again, a moment of silence quickly for those still sad about the loss of IllumiNations.)


One thing that could make or break your experience is standing in a bad spot for the show. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered with our FULL photo guide of the best and worst spots to view Harmonious in EPCOT!

Kite Tails — Animal Kingdom

While some of the other parks got nighttime spectaculars for the 50th, Animal Kingdom got a new daytime show called KiteTails. This show has had quite the special reaction with audiences! And some people (including quite a few on our team) are DEFINITELY on the KiteTails hype train. Let’s just say, giant kites being pulled around on fast-moving jet skis can lead to some pretty epic moments (and epic, yet purposeful falls 😂).

Beacons of Magic

Hopping back to time in the parks at night, one special thing the 50th Anniversary brought with it are new “Beacons of Magic” looks and effects for the 4 major park icons (and EPCOT’s is actually a permanent new look!).
