For 13 years, Jiminy Cricket narrated our favorite Disney wishes during Magic Kingdom's fireworks finale every night.

But now, it's time to wave goodbye to our little conscious guide as Disney prepares to reveal its new nighttime spectacle, Happily Ever After.

Happily Ever After will debut at Magic Kingdom Park on May 12, replacing the current show Wishes, which ends on May 11.

According to Disney, the new show will feature more lasers, lights and projections than ever before, along with a soundtrack of contemporary versions of popular Disney songs from films like Moana, Brave, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, The Princess and the Frog, and more.



The show is also expected to rely heavily on Disney's projection mapping technology, featured in its current Hollywood Studio's "Star Wars" fireworks show.
