Fireworks shows are currently suspended at Walt Disney World Resort, but Disney is clearly hard at work to bring back the magic.

Currently, the only fireworks that Guests can see are the small pyrotechnic effects taking place at Magic Kingdom every evening during the holiday season, and even those could be missed if you blink. But tonight, Disney is testing fireworks at the original Walt Disney World theme park.

Disney shared on Facebook this Tuesday, “We will be conducting some routine fireworks testing around different areas of Magic Kingdom Park this Wednesday night, Dec. 16, from 10:30 to 11:30 p.m. We will do our best to keep noise at a minimum and apologize to our neighbors and Guests for this late-night inconvenience. As a reminder, fireworks performances and other nighttime spectaculars in our parks remain temporarily unavailable until further notice.”

Locals to Disney World as well as Guests currently staying at the Magic Kingdom area resorts (such as Disney’s Contemporary Resort) were able to catch a glimpse of the fireworks being tested throughout this evening.

Take a look:

Full fireworks shows have been suspended at Walt Disney World Resort since the theme parks first reopened in mid-July. As we are still in the middle of an ongoing pandemic, Disney World has made the decision to keep nighttime fireworks spectaculars suspended for the time being in order to reduce the potential for crowds to form in the theme parks and continue to enforce social distancing protocol.

Although work continues to be done on fireworks shows such as the upcoming HarmonioUS at EPCOT, Disney World has not yet shared when fireworks spectaculars will return to the theme parks. However, if you have an upcoming trip, there is some nighttime entertainment that will be available soon. Read more here!
