    Are there fireworks in each park every night or only Magic Kingdom? Most of our dinner reservations are around 7 but if we are in Epcot or Animal Kingdom can we make it back to see the fireworks each night? Our family will be there in Feb 2013.

    Magic Kingdom is the only park with a traditional fireworks show nightly.

    Animal Kingdom never has fireworks, as they would be disruptive and dangerous for the wildlife on the preserves.

    In Epcot, there is a show called Illuminations: Reflections of Earth. It takes place nightly in the water surrounded by World Showcase. There are fireworks that go along with it, but it is mainly a show in the water and not the sky.

    In Hollywood Studios there is a show called Fantasmic! It is done on select nights rather than nightly (check the park calendar during your stay for available dates). This show is in an amphitheater and again is more of a show than a fireworks production, although there are some awesome special effects.

    As to whether or not you could make it back in time to see the show, that's hard to predict. It's possible, but with time for dining and travel, it might be tight. While I love Wishes, I don't feel the need to see it every night of our vacation. I think you will find that the shows in the other parks are well worth staying and seeing on their own.

    Hope that helps!
