Walt Disney World continues to make fairy tales come to life. Last year, they announced that the “Once Upon A Time” projection show would be replacing “Celebrate the Magic.” Now, the Magic Kingdom nighttime lineup will have an ending fit for any princess: Happily Ever After.

Disney announced the “Happily Ever After” nighttime spectacular will be debuting at the Magic Kingdom park, replacing the classic “Wishes” fireworks show. The new show, which will combine Disney’s magical storytelling, fireworks, projections, original score and more, is set to make its debut May 12. Using projection mapping, the show will also feature Disney characters from films such as “Moana,” “The Princess & the Frog,” “Big Hero 6,” “Zootopia” and more.

According to the Disney Parks Blog announcement, the show “will inspire guests to seek out and find their own ‘Happily Ever After’ by showcasing some of the greatest adventures Disney characters have taken to achieve their dreams.”

“Happily Ever After” isn’t the only new and improved addition to the parks. Animal Kingdom’s after-dark “Rivers of Light” will be opening Feb. 17 and will feature live performances, floating sets and breathtaking fountains. Also recently announced were Pandora — The World of Avatar, which will transport guests to the mysterious world of Pandora in Animal Kingdom starting May 27; and “Star Wars“-themed parks, which will open at both the California and Florida resorts in 2019.
