Fireworks Are Returning To Disney Parks Beginning July 1!
Get ready to light up the skies because the fireworks are returning to Disney Parks beginning July 1. If you’re like most of us, one of the best parts of any visit to Disney is to end your day by gazing up to the sky and taking in the magic that the fireworks bring to any visit, and in just a few weeks, in it’s time to make all new memories and bring back beloved ones as the fireworks spectaculars are finally returning.
As more and more things continue to open and as life slowly returns to normal, there is no better time to start planning your visit to the Disney Parks. With both Walt Disney World and Disneyland being open to all visitors now, and as we have continued to see more communities adjust and ease COVID-19 guidelines, there’s a new sense of optimism with many positive signs moving forward and one of the best signs of that is the announcement that was made that the fireworks are
returning to Disney Parks beginning July 1. Is there anything better than to see more families making travel plans, friends dining out together more often, and more people returning to work? And at Disney theme parks, they’re gradually bringing back more of our beloved park experiences from the recent return of the Festival of the Lion King at Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World to the recent much-anticipated opening of Avengers Campus at Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort and with yesterday’s announcement that the fireworks are returning to Disney Parks our beloved nighttime spectaculars are soon to be lighting up the skies once again.
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, our incredibly popular nighttime fireworks spectaculars are returning to Disney parks!
At Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, July 1 marks the start of nightly fireworks performances at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT. “Happily Ever After” Presented by Pandora Jewelry 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.
As Disneyland park in California welcomes back all guests, the fun starts 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.
