It looks like I am finalizing my trip for February and will be in the parks Thursday-Saturday. In a way this is good because I should have some extended hours at least one or two days and potentially fireworks. However, I do know that Fantasmic will be closed during my week in California. That is a big bummer since I love it, but you survive. I'm also going to miss Pirates and Splash Mountain.
My question is, how are fireworks handled when not paired with Fantasmic? Do they run around the same time as usual and then the rest of the night just plays out like normal or do they run later than they would when paired with Fantasmic? Do the fireworks run twice? I highly doubt they would run twice but you never know. Anyone experienced the parks on a weekend without Fantasmic that can give me an idea on what to expect?
