    On the days that Disneyland California shuts at 8pm for special events, do you still have the fireworks?

    A warm welcome from all of us at planDisney to you, Rishi. Thanks for stopping by to share this question with us. Oh boy! It won't be long until you will be walking down Main Street, U.S.A. with Sleeping Beauty Castle in the distance. 

    It looks like Disneyland After Dark: Star Wars Nite will be taking place on the day of your arrival. You are correct that Disneyland Park will close early due to this special ticketed event. While there have been fireworks at this event in previous years, I haven't seen anything published on the Entertainment Schedule quite yet. However, in the past, the fireworks have typically taken place during the hours of the special event.

    While the fireworks are for the after-hours event, you should still be able to view them from outside of Disneyland Park on the Esplanade between both theme parks. I recommend checking the Disneyland app during your visit for showtimes and keep in mind that fireworks are always subject to cancellation. 

    The Season of the Force and Pixar Fest will both be in full swing during your visit. When it comes to the Season of the Force, I'm really looking forward to the return of Hyperspace Mountain. It's a must-ride and I highly recommend experiencing this version of the attraction. When it comes to Pixar Fest, I can't wait to sink my teeth into all of the eats and treats

    Well, Rishi, I hope the information I've shared is helpful as you get ready for your magical adventure. Let us know if there's anything else that we can help with. Here's wishing you a magical visit to the Happiest Place on Earth. Let the countdown to the magic begin!
