Tokyo Disney Resort Suspending Disney Light the Night Fireworks Starting January 8th

Among the first normal entertainment (along with Nightfall Glow) to return back in September, Tokyo Disney Resort has announced that the Disney Light the Night fireworks show will be suspended again beginning January 8th as cases of COVID-19 spike above 2,400 new daily cases in the Tokyo area.


The nightly five-minute fireworks show is typically presented between both Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea and is visible from almost anywhere across both parks. Disney Light the Night and the Nightfall Glow evening mini-parade resumed performances on September 1st last year as the Tokyo Disney Resort slowly inched towards some semblance of normality. This move leaves Shanghai Disneyland’s Ignite the Night as the only nightly fireworks spectacular at a Disney park right now.

You can watch a showing of Disney Light the Night after its September resumption on our YouTube channel.

There are no plans to halt performances of Nightfall Glow or close the Tokyo Disney Resort at this time. The resort has moved closing time back to 8pm for both parks, Ikspiari, and Bon Voyage ahead of the January 8th start of the State of Emergency declaration. Stay tuned to WDWNT as the COVID-19 situation continues to develop in Japan for the latest news regarding Tokyo Disney Resort.
