Disney has announced to nearby residents that there will be an after-hours test of 'Happily Ever After' at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom March 9 2023.

This is likely to be one of the final tests before Disney hosts a special Cast Member and media preview opportunity on Tuesday, March 14, 2023, from 11:30pm – 12:00am.

The updated 'Happily Ever After' will feature all-new projections down Main Street, U.S.A., using the new projectors installed for the 50th anniversary. The 50th anniversary show, "Disney Enchantment" will be offered through April 2 2023.

The ones that project Strobe Lights onto the Castle.

It’ll be Disney’s Not-So-Spooky Spectacular by then.

Is there any way for me to see Enchantment during August 2024?

Magic kingdom on the whole is in dire need of help

Maybe unpopular opinion but I think MKs entertainment all around is in dire need of help. FoF is a disaster now a days, the cavalcade is Meh, HEA is still a good show but I wouldn’t say it’s mind blowing. HEA either needs an upgrade or a night parade to accompany it. Which I guess the latter is what’s in the plans.

They vaporize guests who shoplift.

Main Street Lasers?

Honestly.... I don’t understand why Main Street's Lasers are so on and off... As far as Main Street's Projections, I wonder what the average Guest thinks, The Projections were marketed when HEA returned.

They're only allowed to have one show running at 100% at a time. It's luminous' turn
