Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom has held many exciting changes this year, especially the return of Happily Ever After, the Park’s nighttime firework show. This firework show returned following the conclusion of Disney Enchantment, Magic Kingdom’s 50th Celebration firework show, which ended in May 2023.

All Guests can take in the magic of Happily Ever After from Main Street, U.S.A., but Magic Kingdom also offers signature experiences for Guests to enjoy an incredible evening. Recently returning after refurbishment, the Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise now has reservations available for July 12, 2023, and later.

Although watching the fireworks from within Magic Kingdom can be incredible, the crowds can be overwhelming and stressful. This experience offers the opportunity to enjoy the magic in a unique, relaxed environment.

Guests begin their evening by checking in at the Transportation and Ticket Center, where they can begin to relax with refreshments while being greeted by the crew and the backstory of the classic Ferryboat on which they’ll embark for the evening.

Your Ferryboat cruise sets out on the Seven Seas Lagoon, where you will enjoy spectacular views of Happily Ever After. Throughout your evening, you can dine on international cheeses and decadent desserts. Choose from a selection of specialty drinks available, including alcoholic options for Guests 21 years of age or older.

For younger Guests, an ultraviolet scavenger hunt adds extra pixie dust to your evening adventures. Allow them to search for blacklight clues while waiting for the fireworks to begin. Additionally, the experience offers “Mickey Vision” glasses to don, further transforming your Happily Ever After experience.

The price has increased since the last time the experience was available to Guests, and pricing is subject to change. Currently, the experience will cost Guests $130 for adults and $100 for children ages 3 to 9 (tax and gratuity included). Ferrytale Fireworks: A Sparkling Dessert Cruise takes place on select Wednesday and Saturday nights.

About Megan Losey

As a Disney foodie, I love writing about Disney food and snacks. Some of my favorites are the Carrot Cake Cookie from Trolley Car Cafe, the Mickey Beignets from Port Orleans French Quarter, and the Apple Blossom from Port Orleans Riverside. When I'm visiting the parks, you can find me on Main Street taking in the good vibe of Magic Kingdom or relaxing with a drink at the Polynesian watching the fireworks from the beach. As a previous Cast Member, I will always have a special place in my heart for the Magic Kingdom, especially Main Street U.S.A.
