    I see park hours just increased at the end of May. Are fireworks also starting then?

    Hi Edward,

    Hooray for some extra time in the theme parks! Park hours are always subject to change, but it feels like we've been pixie dusted when park hours are extended during our Walt Disney World Resort vacations, doesn't it? I hope you can soak up every moment of magic and fun!

    While many Guests (and planDisney panelists!) are wishing on a star that all of the nighttime experiences will resume soon, there have not been any announcements about the return of any fireworks shows at this point. I'd encourage you to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog or Disney's social media channels for any updates. I'm pretty sure you'll be able to hear me squealing from Virginia when the announcement comes that they'll be able to resume fireworks safely. That's one of my favorite parts of our Disney days, and I miss staring into the night sky while explosions of color, moving music, and the magic of Disney storytelling bring tears to my eyes.

    I do have some great news for you, though. Two special nighttime experiences are currently available! Tree of Life Awakenings is offered on evenings when Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park is open after dark and the Electrical Water Pageant is a fun floating parade that can be viewed at various locations around Seven Seas Lagoon. I hope you'll be able to catch one or both of those during your visit!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Edward, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're thinking through the details of your trip. I hope you have a truly magical vacation next month!
