Walt Disney World apologized to its guests and neighbors for the late-night inconvenience.

The resort is likely testing for the anticipated return of its nighttime spectacular, “Happily Ever After,” which returns to Magic Kingdom on April 3 following the conclusion of the 50th anniversary celebration. Disney said when the show returns it will feature all new-projections down Main Street U.S.A.
