    Pippen Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    I’d like to clarify if there is a need to purchase additional tickets in order to remain in the park until midnight to enjoy the fireworks. Could you provide the information regarding any ticketing requirements or any other details I should be aware of?

    Hello there, Pippen!

    The Walt Disney World Resort nighttime spectaculars are my favorite thing to see when I’m on vacation. Holding hands with my family while listening to nostalgic Disney music and seeing the fireworks often brings tears (or pixie dust) to my eyes. 

    Pippen, unfortunately, at the moment, I can only view the Hours & Events Calendar for the four theme parks through early December. You’ll need to wait about two to three weeks to see what events, fireworks, and nighttime entertainment are planned for each of the theme parks. Once that information becomes available, you’ll be able to see if fireworks are planned for a particular date and what time they will begin. 

    For the most part, you only need valid theme park tickets, theme park reservations, and a mode of entry (Disney band, Disney MagicMobile Service, or a physical ticket) to enter the theme parks and view the nighttime entertainment. However, sometimes special ticketed events occur in the theme parks, where the park closes early to Guests who have a regular daytime ticket. These early close times for special ticketed events mean that regular daytime tickets will not be able to watch the fireworks inside the theme parks. 

    I recommend checking the Hours & Events Calendar over the next few weeks to determine which theme park you want to visit on specific days so that you don’t miss the nighttime entertainment. Be aware that fireworks are always subject to change depending on weather and other factors. I hope these tips help you have a Happily Ever After. 

    May the magic be with you!
