    Hi there! We are planning to visit Disney world from Australia in January 2025. We want to see if there are any parades and fireworks scheduled for January? We will be there around January 8th.

    Hello fellow Disney fan! Visiting the Walt Disney World Resort sounds like the perfect way to begin a new year!

    One of the many joys of a Walt Disney World Resort is the entertainment provided for Guests! That includes daily parades and evening fireworks shows that are so amazing we like to call them “fireworks spectaculars!”

    Guests visiting Magic Kingdom Park can look forward to the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade! The parade occurs once or twice during the day. It’s just a bit too soon to see the parade schedule for January 2025, but if you check the webpage for the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade you'll see the dates and times for this parade! When you arrive at the webpage, just click the little calendar icon to reveal the parade schedule! There is also the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade that takes place at Magic Kingdom Park! This smaller “parade” features some of our favorite Disney characters!

    Let’s stay at Magic Kingdom Park where Guests enjoy the Happily Ever After fireworks spectacular each night at Magic Kingdom Park! This show is a fan favorite! Similar to the parade, the Happily Ever After fireworks show also has a webpage where Guests can check the date and time for the evening show!

    Climb aboard my magic carpet as we fly to Disney’s Hollywood Studios! Here you will find my favorite evening entertainment – Fantasmic! This is so much more than a fireworks show! Don’t get me wrong, there are fireworks, but this show takes you into Mickey’s imagination! It comes with an entire cast of favorite Disney characters, fireworks, lasers, projections, and waterspouts! The show is set to some of our favorite Disney music! I LOVE this show! You can check the dates and showtimes on the Fantasmic! webpage!

    Finally, follow me around the world to EPCOT! Guests can enjoy Luminous The Symphony of Us as the fireworks spectacular at this park! This new show combines Disney tunes, fireworks, fountains, and lights with an important message about our world community – so very appropriate for EPCOT!

    While most of these parades and fireworks occur daily, keep in mind that all scheduled entertainment is subject to change. I recommend keeping an eye on the showtimes using the links that I provided. Also, you can find daily entertainment schedules and showtimes right at your fingertips by using the MyDisney Experience app on your mobile device! When you arrive at the app, click on the icon that states, “Today’s Showtimes.” When you do, you’ll see a listing of the entertainment scheduled in all the Disney Parks!

    Dreams do come true!
