This show features different aspects of many animated films including:

Disney’s previous Fireworks spectacular Wishes debuted on October 9, 2003, and had its final show on May 11, 2017, ending its fourteen year run.

Happily Ever After  will be here for the foreseeable future and has plans to delight just as many fans as Wishes did.
