What is the perfect way to end a perfect day at Disney? Fireworks!
That wasn’t a trick question! Fireworks can turn a great day at Disney into a perfect one—granted you have a good spot.
I think the spot you have for the show can make or break the fireworks for you. Your view can be ruined if you’re behind a tall person, a person with a balloon, or the worst of all—a kid on the shoulders!
The good thing about watching these Disney fireworks videos on YouTube is that you don’t need to find a spot an hour or two before the show is meant to start!
Here are some of Disney’s most fantastic fireworks shows that almost makes up for the fact that we can’t see them in real life.
Disney Fireworks Videos
Happily Ever After
Wishes was the nightly fireworks show at Magic Kingdom for 13 years.
It was the only fireworks show that I remember seeing as a kid, so I was really sad to see it leave. Like many Disney fans, I was worried that I wouldn’t love the new fireworks show as much as I loved Wishes.
Although nothing could ever beat the nostalgia of Wishes for me, I was blown away by Happily Ever After.
I have come to love this show so much, and it is a must-see every time I visit Magic Kingdom. Here is a high-definition video of Happily Ever After.
It was filmed very far back and on a tripod, so you can see all of the marvelous details without getting dizzy from a shaky camera.
Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular Fireworks
A lot of times I am late to seeing the Star Wars fireworks show!
Fantasmic is my favorite nighttime show, but I always rush out of the arena to try and catch the end of the fireworks.
I am always able to get a spot, but I’ve never been able to get a very good view of the whole show. This show has it all: fireworks, projections, light beams, and Yoda!
I found this great video of the full show that was filmed from a great spot!
I have never seen the full projections before, and I am blown away. I might have to skip Fantasmic the next time I am visiting Hollywood Studios just so that I can see all of the details in this extraordinary show with my own eyes!
Not So Spooky Fireworks Spectacular
If you have ever had the pleasure of visiting Disney World during spooky season, then you know it’s one of the best times to be at Magic Kingdom.
There are so many things to love about Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party! The characters, the shows, and of course, the candy!
It is all perfection. My favorite thing to see (besides the Sanderson Sisters) is the fireworks show!
It has everything we love about Disney fireworks shows, but it is themed to be a little spookier than what we’re used to at Disney.
Well– it’s not that spooky! But it is simply perfect, and my favorite fireworks show!
Minnie’s Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks Show
I’ve never seen the Christmas fireworks at Magic Kingdom, but thanks to YouTube, now I have! Don’t you just love the internet?
Disney and Christmas are two of the happiest things that I can think of. I need a little more happy in my life right now, so this firework show feels like a bit of a no-brainer!
Make it Big!
If I had it my way I would be able to watch these fireworks with my own eyes. Watching these videos makes me feel hopeful!
I am looking forward to Disney opening its doors back up when it is safe for all of us. Until that day comes… we have to get creative. If you have a projector, set up a bedsheet and watch the fireworks all together!
If that isn’t available to you, cast the YouTube video to your TV and turn off all the lights. It will be like you’re really there… but with far less people around!
