Seven Rare Disney Characters in Happily Ever After to Try to Spot

(Photo: Disney Parks Blog)

One of the things I love about “Happily Ever After,” the new nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park, is the surprising number of “rare” Disney characters you can spot in the show. And by “rare,” I mean those characters you love but rarely see elsewhere in the parks.

Thanks to the projection technology of this beautiful new show, characters like the Emperor and Shan-Yu from “Mulan”; Syndrome and his Omni-Bot from “The Incredibles”; and WALL-E and EVE from “WALL-E” all have special moments in the show.

Here are seven rare Disney characters in Happily Ever After that I’m sure you’ll be delighted to find in this new nighttime spectacular.

Remy from “Ratatouille” – At one point during “Happily Ever After,” the castle is transformed into Gusteau’s, the restaurant mentioned in the film, with Remy overlooking a Parisian landscape in the distance.

Joy & Sadness from “Inside Out” – This duo appears when the castle appears to be stacked – and then flooded – with colorful memory orbs.

Hiro & Baymax from “Big Hero 6” – This crime-fighting genius and his BFF, Baymax, appear to make an impressive blast off from Cinderella Castle.

Ralph & Vanellope from “Wreck It Ralph” – The gaming duo, Ralph and Vanellope, appear when the castle is wrapped in a candy motif. (Note the castle clock in the picture above, which has transformed into a mint).

“Happily Ever After” is performed nightly at Magic Kingdom Park. For the latest showtimes and information, be sure to check your My Disney Experience app or the park’s Times Guide on the day of your visit.

A sweet way to end the day in Magic Kingdom Park just got sweeter, with new desserts and a second location for viewing the Magic Kingdom Park “Happily Ever After” fireworks spectacular. You can book the Happily Ever After dessert party to enjoy these sweet treats and a reserved viewing area for the fireworks.

Based on your preference, you can choose from two viewing areas: Plaza Garden Viewing (if you want to better see the castle projections) and Tomorrowland Terrace (where there’s reserved and covered seating).

And those new desserts! Here’s a peek at the 10 desserts included with the Happily Ever After dessert party, where all but two are new:

  • A Villains Chocolate Cupcake inspired by Ursula with purple buttercream and chocolate crispy pearls.
  • Pineapple Delight is a Dole Whip-inspired treat, light and fresh with whipped pineapple panna cotta with pineapple compote and a fresh pineapple spear.
  • Chocolate Dipped Strawberries – dark chocolate, of course, are back.
  • Chocolate Marshmallow Tart salutes Frontierland with a reimagined s’more: a graham cracker tart with chocolate custard topped with marshmallow meringue and a chocolate bar.
  • Macarons, a sweet nod to Gaston’s Tavern in Fantasyland in flavors such as pistachio, raspberry, lemon, chocolate, coffee and vanilla.
  • The bold Cheesecake Brownie Bite is in honor of the heroes in “Happily Ever After,” with a brownie topped with chocolate chip cheesecake and whipped cream. Add a drizzle of chocolate and more chocolate chips. This one is a repeat and guest favorite.
  • Strawberry Tart inspiration comes from Main Street, U.S.A., an all-American dessert with a vanilla tart shell filled with lemon curd and raspberry sauce. Add a little strawberry mousse, strawberry crisp pearls and a little whipped cream with a fresh berry.
  • The “Happily Ever After” Cupcake is the signature dessert – red velvet cake with yellow buttercream icing.
  • Perfect for Instagramming with a “Happily Ever After” chocolate garnish.
  • Chocolate Almond Cake features raspberry sauce in the center and a fresh raspberry on top.
  • And Mickey is the muse for the Oreo Mickey Treat, whipped Oreo panna cotta topped with two chocolate ears and sprinkled with chocolate pearls on top of an Oreo.
