Magic Kingdom Will Be Testing New Fireworks Over the Next Couple of Nights

As Walt Disney World Resort prepares for its 50th Anniversary beginning just over a month away on October 1, Disney is hard at work making sure all celebratory moments are ready to go! We previously shared the news that we are saying goodbye to Magic Kingdom’s nighttime spectacular “Happily Ever After“. While the news saddens us, we are excited to say hello to a new highly anticipated nighttime spectacular called “Disney Enchantment” arriving on October 1 at Magic Kingdom Park. Well, it seems like Disney is going to be testing a few new fireworks the next couple of nights for the new show!

Walt Disney World Cast and Community took to Facebook to share the notice as follows for Disney Resort Guests: “Around Magic Kingdom tonight (Aug. 30) and Wednesday night (Sept. 1), some of our neighbors may hear the sound of fireworks a little later than normal. That’s because we are trying out some new fireworks in short bursts between 10:30 pm and 1:00 am. We will do our best to keep noise at a minimum and apologize to our neighbors and Guests for this inconvenience.”

Disney has previously shared, “In “Disney Enchantment,” we join dreamers like Tiana, Miguel, Rapunzel, and brothers Ian & Barley from “Onward,” and we set out on an incredible journey with adventurers such as Moana, Raya, and Judy Hopps. Joe Gardner from Disney and Pixar’s “Soul” takes us into “the zone,” where we discover a whimsical world inspired by the style of legendary Disney artist Mary Blair and filled with beloved characters from classic stories like “Beauty and the Beast” and “Alice in Wonderland” to contemporary tales including “Luca” and “Wreck-It Ralph.” Everything builds to a climactic moment, as Tinker Bell takes flight, spreading shimmering gold pixie dust and empowering us all to believe in ourselves and the magic all around us.”

“Disney Enchantment” isn’t the only theme Park nighttime spectacular we are looking forward to for the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Another Disney Park is preparing for the big debut of “Harmonious”. That’s right – EPCOT is saying goodbye to EPCOT Forever and preparing for their new nighttime spectacular featuring stunning fireworks to light up the World Showcase lagoon.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
