Walt Disney World’s Once Upon a Time Nightime Projection Show Closing for Refurbishment

Disney has announced that they will not be performing the Once Upon a Time projection show starting March 5th at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World.  The show is expected to be closed through March 9th, and then expected to return.  There is no official word as to why the show will be closing, but many speculate that it could be related to “Happily Ever After” replacing “Wishes” as the fireworks finale at the theme park.  “Happily Ever After” is expected to first be performed for guests on May 12th.  We may see many other changes and short-term refurbishments around the area as they prep for this new spectacular.

We are very interested to see what, if anything will be changed after this refurbishment and if it will be noticeable to guests.  We will keep you posted as we learn more about this refurbishment and new details that are revealed about “Happily Ever After”.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
