    fireworks cancelled tonight?

    Can anyone confirm that the fireworks were in fact cancelled at the party tonight? I was guessing with the Santa Ana winds they would and I didn't hear them, so I'm wondering if they'll set them off tomorrow, should wind conditions be more favorable...

    I am of no real help in answering your question, but wanted to send my condolences to anyone who missed out on Halloween party fireworks! They're one of my favorite things I've seen at DL, so that would be a huge let down for me.

    I know, it's such a bummer for them, since that's sometimes the main reason people go! I'm just thinking that they could set them off tomorrow and I could take advantage and see them!

    I'm assuming they were cancelled. World of Color was cancelled due to winds so I would guess the fireworks probably wouldn't be going either.

    The Santa Ana Winds are blowing fierce here in Newport. My home is at an elevation of 700 feet and its bad. Without a doubt the fireworks were cancelled. They say the winds are going to last until Sunday evening so I'm pretty sure they won't be going off tomorrow or perhaps even Sunday depending on the conditions.

    Its the fall now. And with that comes this rule -- always see the fireworks on the first day of your vacation. You can always see it the next day if they get cancelled. But if you skip it the first day and then wait until later in your vacation to do so you risk missing them altogether.

    Yeah the winds are so bad right now they have to cancelled them. It is so bad one of our trees from our house fell down last night so I don't think they will do them at all this weekend send I also have hear it is going to last until Sunday.

    Must have been shockingly bad winds. A CM once told me that World of Color almost never cancelled and that it would take a hurricane to cancel it. She was exaggerating, of course (we're earthquake territory here, keep those hurricanes east of the Mississippi), but it made the point.

    Wind does this to the night shows.
    Fireworks no lfying characters, the lower high elements or no high elements, then nothing. A far bigger problems for Halloween Screams than other shows.

    Fantasmic. No high fireworks, a tiny part of this show. If it rains hard it gets cancelled because it messes up the little water screens.

    WoC. The water is not shot up as high. If blowing toward the viewing area it can be drenching quite easily.

    I can definitely confirm the winds were crazy last night. I was driving on the I-5 from Irvine and was being blown all over the place.

    Re: fireworks cancelled tonight?

    Down here in San Diego County, the winds were pretty fierce last night. It doesn't surprise me that the fireworks were cancelled. With everything so dry in SoCal, a blowing ember from the fireworks could set off a major fire.

    I didn't have the issue of a tree going down (my condolences, Capt Hook), but palm fronds from my neighbors' palm trees are all over our yard. It's still a bit breezy down here. It's supposed to be so, through Sunday, and rather warm too. Fortunately it should cool down a little more by Monday.

    Winds have been pretty mild here this afternoon...I'm going to head down and hope they pick up again once the sun goes down and perhaps get to see Halloween fireworks!

    So what happened? Did they show Halloween Screams? Or was it too windy.
