    Do the Disney World parks still have nightly fireworks shows?

    Hi Bernard,

    Welcome to planDisney! And thanks so much for your question. So many of my family's Walt Disney World memories revolve around fireworks: sitting together in the grassy area of the hub at Magic Kingdom for Happily Ever After; snacking on popcorn in the Fantasmic! amphitheater at Hollywood Studios; and finding just the right spot in the World Showcase to watch fireworks at the end of a fun-filled day at EPCOT.

    Unfortunately, during the phased reopening of the theme parks, as part of the enhanced health and safety measures on physical distancing, activities that encourage people to gather in large groups, such as fireworks and parades, have been temporarily suspended.

    We all hope conditions allow those iconic features of a visit to the Walt Disney World parks to return in the coming months. In the meantime, random character cavalcades take place in each of the parks daily to give guests a chance to wave and snap photos of favorite characters as they pass in special vehicles.

    And, during the holidays, from November 6 through December 30, Cinderella Castle will sparkle nightly with special projection effects to give it a festive look. 

    You can keep up with all the updates on new and returning attractions and entertainment on the website. Or watch the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news. And please, check back with us whenever you have more questions about planning your magical visit to Walt Disney World. We're always here to lend a hand!
