Fireworks Return to Disney's Theme Parks Next Month

June 15, 2021, 12:19 PM · Fireworks and nighttime shows are coming back to Walt Disney World and Disneyland this summer.

Disney announced today that its Magic Kingdom fireworks show, Happily Ever After, will return July 1 at the Walt Disney World Resort. The same evening, the Epcot Forever show will resume nightly performances on the World Showcase lagoon.

On the west coast, Disneyland will present Mickey's Mix Magic nightly starting July 4. That show leans more on projection mapping than pyro, with displays on Main Street USA, Sleeping Beauty Castle and the It's a Small World facade.

Disney, like many other theme parks, suspended nightly fireworks during the pandemic. But with capacity restrictions now lifted and attendance rising, parks are actually going to start needing shows like fireworks again to help distribute those larger crowds.

Disney firework shows tend to be more complex than other parks so little wonder they had to take longer adapting.

I’m waiting for Disneyland to announce their Hail Mary(The Main Street Electrical Parade) any day now.

Disney is cheap and put it off as long as they could.

All theme parks in Disney are so good to watch particularly the firework at night make these parks more beautiful. I have enjoyed the colorful views of fireworks in these parks with my friends. One of my friends sent me source with review which I will visit to hire a writer but first I will read reviews about that writer.
