    When are fireworks returning to Epcot and the other parks?

    Hi there, Ralph!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! It's FIREWORKS!!! I was so excited this morning to see the breaking news that FIREWORKS ARE BACK at Walt Disney World, beginning July 1.

    Just in time to celebrate Independence Day, fireworks will once again light up the sky over Cinderella Castle. Fireworks have been a beloved tradition at Walt Disney World Resort since 1957, and have long been the perfect way to end the day at Magic Kingdom Park. Disney fireworks are beyond amazing, and I can confess that when I see them, I tear up every...single...time. 

    I've visited the Walt Disney World theme parks numerous times since the reopening last summer, and I've missed the nightly fireworks so very much. I can't wait to visit again soon and once again see the Happily Ever After Nighttime Spectacular in Magic Kingdom Park! Not only will Magic Kingdom fireworks return, but Epcot will also have a triumphant return of fireworks with the return of Epcot Forever, a Nighttime Spectacular celebrating the park's past, present and future. 

    It looks like it's going to be a sparkly summer at Walt Disney World Resort! I hope you'll soon be making plans for a summer visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth.
