JUST ANNOUNCED: Fireworks Spectaculars Are Back at Disney Parks This Summer

By the D23 Team

Summer is here and Disney fans are prepping for all their favorite activities—from movie nights with their favorite films to an exciting day at a Disney theme park. For fans hoping to have that perfect day at a Disney park, we have wonderful news! As more communities adjust and ease COVID-19 guidelines, there’s a new sense of optimism with many positive signs moving forward. This includes Disney theme parks, which are gradually bringing back more beloved park experiences, as our friends at Disney Parks Blog just announced.

A Disney tradition since 1957, fireworks shows are what Walt Disney called the perfect “kiss goodnight” at the close of a magical day, and this summer the skies above Disney theme parks will sparkle with color once more. Beginning in July, just in time for the nation’s Independence Day celebrations, nighttime fireworks spectaculars are returning to Disney parks!

Walt Disney World
Starting July 1, Walt Disney World Resort will present nightly fireworks performances at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT. Happily Ever After will transform Cinderella Castle with lights, projections, and pyrotechnics, as moments from favorite Disney stories encourage you to grab hold of your dreams and make them come true. And as part of the ongoing transformation of EPCOT, EPCOT Forever will produce a spectacle of fireworks, music, and lighting effects over World Showcase Lagoon, highlighting the themes of innovation, exploration, imagination, and celebration at the core of the park’s past, present, and future.

Disneyland Resort
Just in time for Independence Day, Disneyland Park will start the fun on July 4 with Mickey’s Mix Magic presented nightly throughout the summer. State-of-the-art projections, show lighting, and lasers will transform Main Street, U.S.A., Sleeping Beauty Castle and the façade of it’s a small world into a dazzling, family fun dance party that goes sky high with fireworks to celebrate the leader of the club, Mickey Mouse.

As a reminder, valid park admission and a park reservation are required for park entry and must be linked to your account. Visit Disneyworld.com/update and Disneyland.com/update for important information, including park attendance requirements.
