Walt Disney World And Disneyland Are Bringing Back Fireworks Sooner Than We Thought
While Walt Disney World and Disneyland are now both back open again, and neither is requiring masks for vaccinated guests anymore, visiting the popular theme parks still doesn’t exactly feel “normal.” There’s a lot that has been missing from the parks. There are no parades. Many attractions have had to be altered due to social distancing. But for me personally, and likely many more, the thing that’s been missing most has been the nighttime spectaculars. Disney Parks just aren’t the same without fireworks. But fireworks are coming back next month.
Today Disney Parks announced that three big fireworks shows will be returning to both Disneyland and Walt Disney World. On July 1 we’ll see Happily Ever After back at Magic Kingdom and EPCOT Forever, back in its namesake theme park. In addition, Mickey Mix Magic will start at Disneyland Park on July 4.
Needless to say, this is all happening much faster than we expected. There had been some hints that EPCOT’s brand new nighttime spectacular, HarmoniUS, could be ready to go in time for Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary in October, but I’m not sure anybody expected events like this, designed to bring crowds of people together would be happening at all this summer.
At this point only these three shows have been confirmed to be returning. There’s no word on Fantasmic!, either the Disneyland or Disney’s Hollywood Studios version, or Disney California Adventure’s World of Color. Disney’s Animal Kingdom’s Rivers of Light show was officially “sunset” during the pandemic and no replacement for that show has been announced yet.
