Guests will be thrilled to learn fireworks return to Walt Disney World July 1st!
What could be more perfect this year than a summertime visit to a Disney theme park? As we continue to see more communities adjust and ease COVID-19 guidelines. There’s a new sense of optimism with many positive signs moving forward. Disney is encouraged by it too, seeing more families making travel plans. Friends are dining out together more often and more Americans returning to work. And at Disney theme parks, they’re gradually bringing back more of our beloved park experiences.
A Disney tradition since 1957, fireworks shows are what Walt Disney called the perfect “kiss goodnight” at the close of a magical day. This summer the skies above Disney theme parks will sparkle with color once more. Just in time for the nation’s Independence Day celebrations, Disney’s incredibly popular nighttime fireworks spectaculars are returning to Disney parks!
Walt Disney World
Fireworks Return to Walt Disney World July 1 to mark the start of nightly fireworks performances at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT. “Happily Ever After” will transform Cinderella Castle with lights, projections and pyrotechnics. Moments from favorite Disney stories encourage guests to grab hold of their dreams and make them come true. In addition, as part of the ongoing transformation of EPCOT, “EPCOT Forever” will produce a spectacle of fireworks, music and lighting effects over World Showcase Lagoon. EPCOT Forever will highlight 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.” These icons will transform into a dazzling, family fun dance party that goes sky high with fireworks to celebrate the leader of the club, Mickey Mouse.
