Disney fireworks at Magic Kingdom are incredible- there really is nothing else like it! From seeing the night sky light up with your favorite colors to hearing beautiful Disney music at one of the most magical places on earth, it’s something truly special to experience.

One other neat thing is that you are able to get a good view of the fireworks even if you’re not at the Park. You can view these firework displays from Disney Resort Hotels like Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort, Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort, and Disney’s Contemporary Resort.

But even magic has designated hours. Currently, this season’s fireworks begin at 8:15 p.m. on select nights. However, this week is different, as Magic Kingdom has announced that tonight through Monday, there will be late-night fireworks.

In the Facebook group Walt Disney World Cast and Community, there was a notice posted, informing community members of late-night fireworks shows at Magic Kingdom.

Tonight through Nov. 14, we will be launching fireworks at Magic Kingdom Park between 11:30 p.m. and approximately 2 a.m. We apologize to our neighbors and Guests for this late-night inconvenience.

Disney fans suspect that this notice has to do with the filming of the annual holiday special, The Wonderful World of Disney: Magical Holiday Celebration, which will air on ABC on Sunday, November 27, at 8 p.m. EST.
