A MUST SEE for anyone going to Magic Kingdom! Projections on the castle are unbelievable, the music and fireworks are inspiring! If you really want to do something special, get the dessert party with garden viewing. Then after you eat (desserts, coffee, juices, fruit, cheese) you get a band for special seating in a sectioned off area in front of the castle!

My wife and boys just loved this fireworks show! Having to stand and be constantly pushed forward by cast members was not fun though.

Wonderful display of fireworks and lights to tell an enchanting storing.

Gets very crowded so get your spot early. This is highly recommended and worth staying to see. My entire family loved it!

Happily Ever After is a fantastic show, although everything you read about the crowds is true or worse. We visited the Magic Kingdom on our first day and two hours before the show began, they began putting up the ropes and managing the crowds that were already trying to stake out their places. Fortunately, we had had a very long day and opted to head to our room early.
Good news though - A few days later we were again at MK, but had made reservations for the Tomorrowland Terrace Fireworks Dessert Party. Problem solved! This was hands-down the best $160 we spent during our 9-day stay.
Reservations are $80/person, payable when you make the reservation. You are asked to arrive an hour before the fireworks begin, and are served a fantastic buffet of elegant small desserts, coffee and other drinks. Bets of all, you are seated at a table right at the railing, which puts you about eight to ten feet above the sweaty hordes below. Perfect view of the whole show with your feet up and your tummy full of delicious treats! What could be better? And yes, the Photo Pass photographer comes around to take a nice picture of you relaxing to prove how smart you were to book this. Highly recommended!
