    Hello, Heather!

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney. I am glad that you sent us your question! Some of my most cherished memories were created during large family trips to Disneyland Resort as a child. Playing with my cousins at "The Happiest Place on Earth" was so much fun, and I love that my kids can now experience the same fun with their cousins at our favorite vacation destination. 

    The Nighttime Spectacular schedule for your vacation is not yet available, as the Entertainment Calendar only extends out to early June at this time. For reference, on Monday, June 10, 2024, the Together Forever - A Pixar Nighttime Spectacular with fireworks is scheduled to begin at 9:30 p.m., subject to change. This is part of Pixar Fest, which ends on August 4, 2024.

    During the "off-season", fireworks usually soar above Disneyland Park on Friday through Sunday evenings in my experience. In the past, Mickey's Mix Magic (without fireworks) has been the designated Nighttime Spectacular during the rest of the week. Even without the fireworks, Mickey's Mix Magic is a lot of fun! It includes spectacular projections and lights on Main Street, U.S.A. and Sleeping Beauty Castle, and it is accompanied by upbeat music that always has my kids dancing in the street! I suggest checking the Entertainment Calendar as it gets closer to your trip to verify which evenings might have fireworks. Keep in mind that fireworks are sometimes canceled at Disneyland Resort due to weather-related conditions, even if they are listed on the schedule. 

    World of Color - ONE is another nighttime option that my family loves! Located in Disney California Adventure Park, this incredible performance showcases how one person can make a difference. I hope it takes place during your visit! My family also enjoys the World of Color Dessert Party, where Guests can enjoy the show from a reserved viewing area with treats, sweets, and, most importantly, chairs!

    Heather, I am keeping my fingers and toes crossed that you can catch a Nighttime Spectacular fireworks performance during your visit! If you have other questions, I am happy to help!

    Magic Happens!
