    How do you know if/when the firework shows and parades will be going on again?

    Hi Tracey!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question.

    As a frequent visitor of Walt Disney World Resort since the reopening last July, I've been encouraged with the progress being made to bring back entertainment options Guests have come to know and love. Slowly but surely, Walt Disney World is Returning to a World of Magic, and more and more magical things are happening each day! I was very encouraged to hear that more Guests were being seated in indoor entertainment venues last week, such as Country Bear Jamboree, and Mickey's PhilharMagic, and that face coverings are now optional in all outdoor areas in parks and resorts.

    Nothing makes my heart happier than ending the day at a Walt Disney World theme park than enjoying an amazing Nighttime Spectacular. Whether it's Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios or Happily Ever After at Disney's Magic Kingdom Park, there's just no better way to celebrate than with some awesome Disney entertainment. I'm on the edge of my seat to see what's in store with Epcot’s upcoming fireworks spectacular, HarmonioUS, but good things come to those who wait, right? 

    I'm keeping a very close eye on the Disney Parks Blog, and on Walt Disney World on Facebook and Twitter for any announcements about fireworks returning to Walt Disney World Resort. I can't wait until fireworks can once again light up the sky over Cinderella Castle - cue the tears, and pass the tissues! In the meantime, I'll be enjoying Character Cavalcades - "mini-parades" throughout the parks, with appearances from all my favorite Disney Characters. While the Festival of Fantasy parade is also temporarily paused, these fun appearances throughout the day have become a really fun entertainment addition during Walt Disney World's phased reopening. I kind of hope they'll continue the cavalcades (and Flotillas in Disney's Animal Kingdom) - they're really fun!

    Thanks again for visiting planDisney - please come back for tips and advice to help make the most of your Disney vacation.
