    We are planning our second Disney vacation for Jan 2019. How far in advance does Disney post their fireworks schedule. Right now it doesn’t look like there are any scheduled when we will be there (Jan 16-23)

    Hi Chris,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I'm glad to hear that you'll be returning for another vacation at the most magical place on earth! 

    I have some good news for you! I just checked the park hours calendar, and it looks like fireworks and nighttime experiences are posted for Magic Kingdom Park, Epcot, and Disney's Hollywood Studios for January! Just make sure that you have the "Fireworks and Nighttime Entertainment" box checked at the top of the page, and you should be able to see the times for Happily Ever After (my favorite!), Fantasmic!, and IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. I did notice that Disney's Animal Kingdom isn't listing their nighttime show on that main calendar, but if you pull up the page for Rivers of Light, you may change the date over on the right-hand side under "Hours" and see when it's showing during your visit. It looks like it's currently scheduled for 6:30 p.m. for January 16 - 19, and 6:45 p.m. for January 20 - 23. There's no better way to end a magical day than with a spectacular nighttime show, so I hope that you'll be able to enjoy all of these during your week at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip, Chris, and have a truly magical vacation!
