Pyrotechnic pixie-dust moments add occasional bursts of merriment each night at Magic Kingdom Park as projection effects transform Cinderella Castle with a flourish of holiday cheer. These magical holiday touches occur throughout the night as part of the seasonal celebrations happening across Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla., through Dec. 30, 2020.

With fireworks and nighttime spectaculars hopefully continuing later this year in some capacity (we’re especially looking at you, Harmonious), Walt Disney World is looking for a leader to direct all the special effects designs, including pyrotechnics, for live shows and facility infrastructure when required. The ideal candidate has a minimum of 7 years of experience in the Entertainment Industry working in show development and operation of live shows.

  1. Here’s an idea: REHIRE the hundreds of very talented and very desperate entertainers, musicians, and techs who have literally heard NOTHING for months.

  2. Well it Looks like we aren’t getting these any time too awful soon. This is ashame considering it can be done and has been done at other parks around the world… Disney World has maintained a slow and steady wins the race posture and it’s working for them since reopening but it’s time for shows and fireworks to return. It can be done… Especially by Disney. They would do it right. Fireworks at Fantasmic and Epcot. And space out the performers in the shows. ITS TIME.
