Disney has confirmed that Magic Kingdom will be testing fireworks for two hours on the 16th. Could this mean a return to fireworks soon? Probably not. Let’s jump into all the details and talk about why.
From 10 pm to midnight fireworks testing will be going on at Magic Kingdom. While this is so exciting for fans, Guests, and local communities who will have a chance to catch a glimpse of fireworks. It does not however mean that fireworks will be returning to the parks anytime soon, as EPCOT was testing fireworks back in September and nothing has come of it as of yet.
Here is the official announcement from Disney about the fireworks testing thanks to reporter @AshleyLCarter1 on twitter!

Disney even puts emphasis on this announcement that just because they are testing no nighttime spectaculars at the parks are available at this time.
Could we see a return of fireworks at Walt Disney World this year? Well, we have some thoughts on that and you can read what we think here.
Could the testing be for Happily Ever After, which was the nighttime spectacular in residence at Magic Kingdom before the closure. OR it could be for a new nighttime spectacular for the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney World. While we are purely speculating here, nothing can be for certain until Disney World makes an official announcement.
If you are staying at Walt Disney World, especially if you are at a Magic Kingdom resort be sure to look up into the sky tomorrow and see if you can spot some beautiful fireworks!
