    I have a question about the Halloween Fireworks show at Disneyland in California. Can you tell me if they happen all week long or only on the weekends?

    Happy Haunts, Jessica! Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for your question. It's a great one since Guests are typically curious about when they can expect to see the iconic firework spectaculars at Disneyland Resort.

    Typically, we notice patterns where projection shows like Halloween Screams with Projections are on display Mondays - Thursdays, while Halloween Screams with Fireworks generally shows on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings. However, I always like to consult the entertainment schedule and event hours page to confirm the fireworks and nighttime entertainment showtimes. As always, schedules and offerings are subject to change, but this page (or the corresponding entertainment section in the official Disneyland mobile app) is a wonderful resource to use in the days leading up to your visit and even during your visit dates! Just be sure to note whether the Halloween Screams show indicates "with Fireworks" or "with Projections" only.

    Jessica, one quick tip for you is that the projections are shown on Matterhorn mountain which offers a unique view into the storytelling behind Halloween Screams. If it were me, I'd prefer to find a vantage point where you can see both Sleeping Beauty Castle and the Matterhorn Bobsleds for a vibrant viewing of this fun, whimsical, and spine-tingling fireworks spectacular! 

    I hope these recommendations are useful to you, Jessica. Please don't hesitate to reach out to us again if we offer any other personal advice in the days leading up to your next visit, or anytime you have a question for planDisney!

    This is Halloween!
