    How early can you start lining up on Main Street to watch the fireworks at Magic Kingdom?

    Hi Theresa,

    The fireworks are returning! The fireworks are returning! The fireworks are returning! Needless to say, there are SO MANY excited Disney fans (and planDisney panelists!) who cannot WAIT to experience the magic of the nighttime spectaculars again. I am confident that happy tears will be rolling down my face the first time I hold my family and watch the night sky light up while moving music and incredible lighting fill my senses with joy. The fireworks have always been one of my favorite parts of our Disney days and it's beyond exciting to hear that they're returning in July!

    In the past, Guests began gathering along Main Street, U.S.A. and around the hub an hour or so before Happily Ever After began. If there happened to be a nighttime parade before the fireworks show, Guests gathered even earlier and many just hung out there through both the parade and the fireworks show. With all of the new Covid safety protocols, it remains to be seen if Guests will linger in one place for an extended time or things will change a bit. We'll certainly know more in early July! Once you arrive, I'd encourage you to check with a Cast Member or two earlier in the day to see what Guest behavior has been like so you can plan out your evening itinerary. I'm just so happy that your evening will be able to include an incredible nighttime spectacular!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Theresa. I hope you have a truly magical vacation!
