    We’re going to WDW in January. Do parks still do fireworks even though they close at 7:00 pm?

    Hi Michael, welcome to planDisney. 

    I've just checked the nighttime entertainment, and I'm delighted to confirm that there are three fireworks and nighttime spectaculars to choose from across the parks for your visit. Disney's Animal Kingdom does tend to close earlier as all the animals need some rest, but the other three Parks are typically open much later. It's certainly the case on Jan 21, 2024. 

    You could watch the classic Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios on this night with a final showtime of 9:30 pm. If Magic Kingdom Park is on your itinerary, Happily Ever After is scheduled for 8 pm on Jan 21, 2024, about an hour before the Park closes. That's not all, Michael. A brand new nighttime spectacular, Luminous The Symphony of Us, is showing over at EPCOT. I can't wait to see this as I LOVED the score for its predecessor, Illuminations, and I have very high hopes for this new show. Luminous The Symphony of Us is set to begin at 9 pm at EPCOT. I always recommend double-checking the times closer to the date of your stay with the most up-to-date Park hours and show times available on the Walt Disney World website. 

    So, you're spoilt for choice, Michael! If it was my first Disney vacation, the spectacle of Happily Ever After over Cinderella Castle in Magic Kingdom is unbeatable. A new core memory, guaranteed. You may be interested in booking Magic Kingdom Fireworks Dessert Parties, which combines sweet treats with a prime viewing spot. 

    Enjoy a fabulous vacation at the Most Magical Place on Earth!
