On October 1, 2021, Disney launched its 50th Anniversary celebration at the Walt Disney World Resort. Cinderella Castle received a beautiful, decorative makeover, there were gold statues of classic Disney characters throughout the Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Hollywood Studios, and Animal Kingdom, and two new nighttime spectaculars premiered. The first new show was Harmonious at EPCOT and the second show was Disney Enchantment at the Magic Kingdom, which replaced the incredibly popular show, Happily Ever After.
There are a lot of things that Guests absolutely love about Walt Disney World’s 50th Anniversary, including the limited-time food and merchandise. However, Disney Enchantment has received mixed reviews. Disney knows how to put on a fabulous fireworks show, but a lot of Guests felt that Disney Enchantment did not live up to what they expected for Disney’s 50th. Not long after the premiere of Disney Enchantment, Guests took to social media to beg Disney to bring Happily Ever After back to the Magic Kingdom.
One of the people who really wants Disney to bring back Happily Ever After is Jordan Fisher — an actor and singer who is well-known in the Disney universe and actually sang the song for Happily Ever After. Fisher has taken to social media multiple times to show fans his love for the show and to ask Disney when Happily Ever After will come back.
The first tweet he sent was simply him looking at the camera, asking when the show is coming back. He then said, “Shouldn’t it come back?” and tagged Walt Disney World.

Fisher then followed up with a tweet a few days later that played the Happily Ever After show, and he invited his followers to listen along, saying, “cry with me”.

Disney has not said what will happen to either Disney Enchantment or Harmonious once the 50th Anniversary ends. The 50th Anniversary is scheduled to run through March 2023. With the D23 Expo coming up next month — September 9 through September 11 — it is possible that Disney may share the future of the nighttime shows at its Parks panel. Disney began showing Happily Ever After in 2017, and it replaced another popular show — Wishes.
