More fireworks testing is taking place on Walt Disney World property! When do you think nighttime spectaculars will return?

For many, Disney isn’t Disney until fireworks return. The full Disney experience isn’t the same without some kind of nighttime spectacular in the parks. Whether you catch the Star Wars Spectacular on your way out of Hollywood Studios or stake your spot on Main Street an hour before Happily Ever After begins, the nighttime entertainment is a special part of your time at Disney.

Disney World has been testing fireworks on and off for the past several months and have even posted job listings for its return. Not too long ago, Epcot tested the music for the temporary fireworks show, Epcot Forever, instead of the new Harmonious show. It led us to wonder if maybe Epcot was going to use that show again before debuting Harmonious.

Now, more testing is making us wonder when we will actually get an announcement.

Testing, Testing

According to many reports across social media, Guests staying at the Epcot-area resorts last night, May 20, got a mini fireworks show! It’s unclear if there was any music accompanying the fireworks so we don’t know which show they were testing.

The resorts closest to Epcot include Beach Club, Yacht Club, and the BoardWalk. Depending on the view you have, even Guests staying at Riviera can see Epcot fireworks!

When will nighttime return?

I do think we will see fireworks again by the fall at the very latest for this reason.

Things have also been moving very rapidly in recent weeks with the decrease in mask wearing and physical distancing. I think it’s completely possible we could see something in the next couple months. Wouldn’t 4th of July be the perfect time to bring fireworks back!? Disney is definitely headed back to normal, and I am here for it.

  1. Fireworks are outdoors. I would think they would be back sooner rather than later, but trying not to get hopes up for our late summer trip.
