BREAKING: Fireworks Return to Walt Disney World with Low-Level Bursts Added to Cinderella Castle Holiday Projection Show

Just in from Magic Kingdom tonight, the very first fireworks have returned to Walt Disney World with low-level bursts added to this year’s new Cinderella Castle holiday projection show.


Dubbed “pyrotechnic pixie-dust moments” by Disney, these add occasional bursts of merriment each night at Magic Kingdom as projection effects transform Cinderella Castle with a flourish of holiday cheer.


These are more along the lines of pyrotechnics as opposed to the full-on fireworks we’re used to seeing during nighttime spectaculars. The different bursts go off in 15-minute intervals along with transitions of the four varying castle designs. You can check out the castle designs in our initial debut post here.

When the projection show debuted earlier this month, fireworks did not accompany the projections—nor were they advertised, so this is a special surprise and delight for guests tonight. These special “fireworks” will remain through the rest of the holiday season.

Fireworks testing recently took place at the Magic Kingdom after park close, though that was more so related to “Project Nugget”, or preparations for a new nighttime spectacular ahead of Walt Disney World’s 50th anniversary.

Nice to have that bit of magic back, as small as it may be.
