Best Nighttime Shows at Disney World
Vacationing in Disney is full of fun adventures. From thrill-seeking rides to chances to meet and greet with your favorite characters, every day provides a new way to enjoy your time together as a family, couple or friend group. While Walt Disney World provides nearly year-round vitamin D thanks to its location in Florida, the surprises don’t stop once the sun goes down. In fact, if you ask any Disney fanatic, the nighttime shows, experiences and memories are amongst the most spectacular. So much so, that’s exactly what Disney names them. If you’re venturing to the happiest place on Earth this year, make sure to speak with one of our trusted travel agents who will ensure your night lights up as much as your day does. Here, a guide to the best nighttime shows at Disney. Specifically, what you can expect under the twinkling glow of the stars—and from the insatiable wonder of Disney:
Happily Ever After
Regardless if you’ve stumbled across your forever-and-ever you can get swept away by the films that made you hold out for the right partner via the Happily Ever After fireworks display. Here, you’ll be reminded of the heart, the humor and the heroism that ties together so many films and storylines from the talented writers and creators. As you tune-in to this 18-minute display around Cinderella’s castle, you’ll witness nods to Aladdin, Brave, The Lion King, Moana, Toy Story, Up and dozens of other movies you’ve seen and loved. How will it all come together? Via lasers, immersive lighting, powerful songs and fireworks!
An Evening of Fairy Tales
One lesson Disney strings through all of their movies is the importance of families. While sometimes those relationships are tested and tricky, they’re also some of the most important to foster and nourish. You can join Mrs. Potts and her son chip as she tucks in her kiddo to bed, starting with the infamous ‘Once upon a time’ opening. Then, you’ll move through Alice in Wonderland, Frozen, Cinderella and more movies, as she sings her babe to sleep. You’ll see images and lights projected against Cinderella’s castle for 14 minutes, then like, chip, it is off to bed!
The Story of Earth
Some of the thrills of Disney aren’t exactly possible—even if your kiddo believes they have supernatural powers. But what is possible is a sneaky educational moment during your getaway, when you take your family to see this show. At the World Showcase Lagoon, you’ll be swept through the creation of our impressive planet, highlighting a fiery birth that begins with fireworks. From here, you’ll see explosions of red and golden lights, volcanos, and then revealing an illuminated surface of globe. We won’t give away the ending—but you can expect comets, songs and more wonders.
A Night When Dreams Come True
For many people—of any age and background—going to Disney is like a true birthday wish, a coin toss in a fountain or a found four-leaf clover. To put the finishing touch on your vacation that has been sprinkled with glitter from day one, consider seeing ‘A Night When Dreams Come True.’ Here, it isn’t just the good guys who welcome you to Disney, but the villains too. Here, you’ll join Mickey Mouse himself as he brings about the spirit and cando of countless characters from Aladdin and Peter Pan to The Lion King, and others. Everything is peachy until the Evil Queen, Ursula, Cruella de Vil, Scar and Maleficent challenge Mickey’s rose-colored dreams. We bet you can predict what will happen—but, it is still worth seeing.
