Disney’s Magic Kingdom Has a New ‘Halfway to Halloween’ Fireworks Show You Can Watch at Home (& It Includes Jack Skellington)

If there’s one thing Disney World fanatics miss more than the sugar-crusted churros, it’s probably the over-the-top fireworks show at Magic Kingdom. But even though the theme parks are closed until further notice, you can still enjoy the iconic display with your family.

How, you ask? Disney just announced that it’s streaming the fireworks for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween party later this evening. The Jack Skellington-themed display marks the theme park’s “Halfway to Halloween” extravaganza, which features a combination of lasers, pyrotechnics and state-of-the-art projections.

The news comes a few weeks after Disney released a video of the “Happily Ever After” show that is normally shown over Cinderella’s Castle. The 18-minute-long video features both the fireworks and the accompanying light show with zero—we repeat, zero—screaming children in the background.

Not only does the video offer a rare front-row seat to “Happily Ever After,” but it also allows you to experience the show without any wavering heads blocking your view. (If you know, you know.)

“Watch as the castle you know so well becomes a canvas for the heart-tugging story of the importance of chasing your dreams, no matter what, and finding your happily ever after,” the Disney Parks Blog wrote.

That not enough for you? The Disney PhotoPass Service also released never-before-seen firework images that can be used as free wallpaper. This means you can make the Disney fireworks the background of your phone, computer or Zoom video chat.

Let’s just hope the kids are better behaved during the 18-minute video than they are during the real thing.
