The theme of the new fireworks spectacular is to encourage viewers to find their own "Happily Every After." The show is said to feature new state of the art fireworks, pyrotechnics, and animation. Many new characters and scenes are being added to the show, including moments from "Brave", "Big Hero 6", "Moana", "The Princess and the Frog", "Aladdin", "Zootopia", "The Incredibles" and many more classic Disney films. Something unique to only Disney World is that they will never put on a show without leaving the audience with a message. Each theater show, fireworks display, and parade have a theme and message which are always positive and geared towards all ages. Since Disney's original fireworks show was such a hit, fans are nervous that the update will lose the classic feel of the show. While any true Disney lover is sad to see Disney's classic fireworks show 'Wishes' go, Disney enthusiasts know that the new show "Happily Ever After" will not disappoint. #Walt Disney World
