ORLANDO, Fla. – Grab the popcorn and cuddle close.

Disney Magic Moments announced that it would be streaming the “Happily Ever After” fireworks show Friday evening for families to enjoy while being cooped up inside.

If you ask us, the dazzling show is a perfect way to end the night with a bang -- literally.

The virtual spectacle is another extra way for The Walt Disney Co. to keep fans entertained while its theme parks are closed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Disney shared the special announcement on the official Walt Disney World Instagram account.

“When night falls magic fills the skies,” the Disney Parks Blog Instagram account posted in a story complete with a countdown clock. “Tonight, join us from home for a virtual viewing of this pre-recorded spectacular.”

The beloved fireworks and projection show at Cinderella Castle has drawn in thousands of spectators each night, tonights viewing will bring in thousands more, only this time Main Street U.S.A will be empty and fireworks won’t be lighting up the night sky.

The live stream isn’t exactly “live” and it should be noted that the theme parks are still closed. The video is instead a replay of the show from a previous night.

The show will instead be broadcasted in its entirety on the Disney Parks Blog, beginning at 7 p.m.

The 18-minute show features more lights, lasers and special effects than any other fireworks spectacular in the history of Magic Kingdom.

Not to mention the show includes a toe-tapping score filled with contemporary versions of beloved Disney songs.

If you happened to miss the live stream, Hakuna Matata.

You can watch the firework spectacular as many times as you like below.
