For visitors visiting Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort on August 31, be prepared not to see the traditional fireworks light up the night sky. Disney has canceled the fireworks portion of Happily Ever After, but says the Cinderella Castle screenings will remain.
Disney sent a push notification to visitors through the My Disney Experience app. The notice said the following:
Happily Ever After will be changed tonight to only include the Cinderella Castle screening without fireworks. Customers can visit EPCOT for a spectacular night view of EPCOT Forever, with valid entry. We apologize for the inconvenience.
Disney didn’t say why the fireworks were canceled, but last night smoke was seen coming from the Magic Kingdom as Disney tested its new fireworks show, Disney Enchantment on August 30. Disney Enchantment will take over for Happily Ever After on October 1. , when Disney World begins its 50 anniversary celebration.
It is not known if tonight’s cancellation is related to the fire and smoke seen last night.
Here is some more information about Happily Ever After from the Disney World website:

While Happily Ever After may be canceled for tonight, August 31, Disney has not said if the show will resume normal operations on September 1. Disney also plans to continue testing Disney Enchantment on September 1, so it will be interesting to see how the fireworks display the progress.
