    We are planning a trip to Disneyland/DCA in July. We would like to see fireworks and World of Color, but I've heard that Disney only does those on the weekends. Does Disney (weather permitting) ever have these shows during the week during July? Thanks!

    A great, big, beautiful welcome to planDisney, Traci! Thank you so much for sharing your question with us and it's always an honor to help fellow Guests plan their next magical vacation!

    In my family, everyone knows that my perfect Disney day prioritizes the nighttime spectaculars and live entertainment that Disneyland Resort is known for! There's just something so special about watching fireworks soar over Sleeping Beauty Castle and seeing those amazing Disney stories come to life. I completely understand why you'd want to know the planned showtimes in advance of your visit so that you can prepare, accordingly. 

    I'm happy to share that World of Color - ONE has traditionally had weekday showtimes, while fireworks at Disneyland Park may occur on select nights. However, we're still too far out from your July visit date to know exactly which nighttime spectacular offerings will be scheduled. One of my most frequently used resources is the Hours and Events Calendar on the Disneyland website or the official Disneyland mobile app. This page will display the park hours, live entertainment schedules, planned refurbishments, and more, up to 4-6 weeks in advance. So, my best recommendation is to check back in late May or early June to see the showtimes for your visit dates populated in the Hours and Events Calendar. Then, you can get back to all the fun of planning your trip with these important details to maximize your time and the experiences you'd like to prioritize! As you alluded to in your question, schedules are always subject to change, especially in the event of inclement weather, but the Hours and Event Calendar is still a great starting point for your planning!

    Speaking of incredible themed entertainment, have you heard the news that Fantasmic! is expected to make its triumphant return on May 24, 2024? I'd have to believe that it will be ready for you to experience in July and I would definitely encourage you to add that to your itinerary for at least one day of your visit. I can't wait to see if there will be any new scenes or other changes to this heartwarming, inspiring, adventurous tale in Mickey's imagination!

    I hope this has been a helpful place to start, Traci. If we can lend any other recommendations or ideas for your upcoming visit, I'd love for you to visit planDisney again! We always welcome Guests to come back and share their questions with us. In the meantime, I wish you unforgettable memories with your loved ones in 'The Happiest Place on Earth!'

    Magically yours,
