More Entertainment Returning; Happily Ever After and EPCOT Forever to be Retired in September

| | |

In a news release put out this afternoon, Disney mentioned several of our favorite entertainment options will be returning to Walt Disney World! We have been awaiting news of this for weeks!

Ever since The Festival of the Lion King returned, we had hoped to see even more entertainment options coming soon! Turns out, we are!

Starting August 1, the “Wonderful World of Animation” will return to  Disney’s Hollywood Studios! This cinematic nighttime experience leverages projection mapping technology to transform the park’s iconic Chinese Theater on a magical journey through more than 90 years of Disney animation.

On August 15, a tale as old as time will return to Theater of the Stars on Sunset Boulevard with “Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage.” The heartwarming tale of Belle and Beast will once again swirl to life in this lush stage performance, with colorful costumes, gorgeous scenery and the songs you know and love.

We’re also excited to share that you’ll soon be able to visit those monsters of comedy in Monstropolis and chat with a certain sea turtle at The Seas with Nemo & Friends. Mike Wazowski will begin welcoming humans to the Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor at Magic Kingdom Park on August 8. And beginning August 21, you can get your most pressing questions answered during Turtle Talk with Crush at EPCOT. Duuuude!

Valentine's Day Walt Disney World

But, wait… there’s more very sad news…

It was recently announced that all-new nighttime spectaculars “Disney Enchantment” and “Harmonious” would be debuting October 1 as part of The World’s Most Magical Celebration. Well, Disney has just confirmed that means this summer is also your last chance to come out and catch the current fireworks shows before they sparkle into Disney history. “EPCOT Forever” will conclude its limited-time run on September 28, and you have until September 29 to take in the spectacle of “Happily Ever After” at Magic Kingdom Park.

So, are you ready to book your trip this summer to see them for the very last time?
