Photo Gallery: Magic Kingdom’s Happily Ever After

Last April, we watched Happily Ever After from our favorite viewing spot. No, not in the hub. We love taking in Magic Kingdom’s best nighttime spectacular from Sleepy Hollow Refreshments. Disney purists might not appreciate our choice. After all, we don’t get to see every Cinderella Castle projection. But the payoff is worth it. We never have to stake out a spot early, so we’re slamming rides until just before the show starts. And standing to the side of the castle creates some stunning views, especially when the fireworks are going off.

No matter where you watch, Happily Ever After is worth keeping the kids up late at least once during your vacation. But don’t rush for the exits after it’s over. You’ll never make the first bus, monorail, or ferry anyway. Enjoy your time in an emptying Magic Kingdom.
