When You Can See ‘Happily Ever After’

While the show will still be performed every night, it is essential to know that the starting time for the show has been pushed from 9:00 p.m. to 9:20 p.m. This pushback is due to the sun setting later in the day. Happily Ever After requires a fully dark night sky. The show will likely return back to its 9:00 p.m. start time once summer is over.
