Despite rumors of aliens and ring UFOs, this smoke ring was actually created on purpose by Disneyland. If the winds are too high, then fireworks spectaculars will have to be canceled due to the severe fire hazards associated. So, this smoke ring may have been an attempt to determine whether the windy night was too intense for a firework show.

Not only that, but sometimes this large ring of smoke can result from the very pyrotechnics used in fireworks shows.
