    Red Face Believe had a different finale last night!

    Hi everyone,

    I was at an event last night by the parks, and we were watching the last bits of the fireworks. I noticed that the finale for "Believe...in Holiday Magic" was different then usual. It's not that it was horrible or anything, if anything the finale we saw last night had louder fireworks and shells that sparkled (rather then burst into a million sparks as it normally does).

    If you wanna see, I did catch it on my phone (though poorly) here: Instagram


    This is more of a geeky, and odd question but, does Disneyland normally change their selections of fireworks or their sequences mid-season?

    Just curious.
    - Jonathan! :]

    Hi Jonathan , no your not the only one , I noticed it to ... last week they added more fireworks to the last part of the show .
    Actually during the first shows when Believe started this season I noticed that the finally didn't have a lot of "boom" shells at the end. It was same as every year but for my point of view shells sparkling but with less noise.

    They probably added these additional fireworks for a better and spectacular finale . I don't think it has nothing to do with being mid season , its just that they noticed it needed a little more to that ending .

    I noticed those last night too!

    I love it personally, I always thought Believe needed a finale that was more explosive, in a lack of a better word. The usual/other ending was pretty boring after a while anyways, and didn't seem all that spectacular to me. I like how they use the same color palette though. I hope they keep it like that!

    I live in Anaheim About a Mile from Disneyland, (you can normally see the fireworks from my house).


    But the last 2 nights in a row the finale Has been so LOUD, lots of big booms in a row (I have to goto bed really early for work, since I work overnight) So its been waking me up. But I def want to check out. I haven't Personally watched believe since Last year.


    I also noticed this year the halloween fireworks were really loud too.

    Idk Maybe Disney is testing out some new Fireworks.

    I thought Disneyland had done away with salute shells in general. I couldn't see or hear any in that finale. The "booms" could have been made by the fact that the shells were physically larger, right? The elimination of salute shells was to appease the residents living nearby, I thought. Their 4th of July show was beautiful but relatively quiet compared to most 4th of July shows I've seen.

    I would rather have quiet fireworks than loud burst your eardrum fireworks.

    Maybe because the cold air it makes it a bit thinner so therefore the sound gets amplified? Just a guess.

    Re: Believe had a different finale last night!

    Thanks for the replies everyone. I go to a university nearby Disneyland, and around that time we normally hear the fireworks and catch a glimpse also - it looks like they might've switched it back to the original ending.

    Thanks again for the answers! Happy holidays

    Nope! They've actually gone with a really grand ending without the original finale. It is REALLY explosive.

    Well, here's a video of the New Finale I shot last night. In my opinion, this finale is way better than the old one.

    For the new Finale Scene click on the 1:10 mark.

    Ahhh! Thanks for filming it! I'm with ya, I really think it really gives you that oommph. I wonder if that means NYE will be even more explosive at the end?
