Facts About Walt Disney World Fireworks Part 3
No Fireworks at Disney’s Animal Kingdom
While fireworks are the perfect ending to a day at the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, or Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the same can’t be said at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Rivers of Light is the nighttime show, but there are no fireworks in it. The reason is simple, Disney does not want the loud fireworks to bother the animals who call the park home.
IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth
At Epcot the end of the night show is IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth. Most nights the show takes place at 9:00pm. During the Christmas season it is moved back to 9:30. Fireworks are just one element of IllumiNations. It tells “The Story of Earth”. The tale is in three parts. There is a 350,000 pound globe in the story, and fire shoots 60 feet into the air. The show ends with fireworks in a grand finale that you won’t soon forget.
Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular
For years Disney’s Hollywood Studios only had fireworks for special events or holidays. Things changed when Symphony in the Stars: A Galactic Spectacular debuted. The show received rave reviews from Star Wars fans, but Disney was not done. On June 17, 2016 Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular replaced it. The show uses both fireworks and projection to allow guests to relive some of the top moments from the Star Wars movies. The music of the legendary John Williams adds to the experience. Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular is adaptable. Scenes from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story have been added, even though the movie was released months after the fireworks debuted. There’s a good chance that there will be more changes, since more Star Wars movies are set to be released.
