HEy everybody. I'm watching Believe the fireworks show on my comp, and i've always wondered...at the beginning when they have the firefly looking thing flying around all over the castle, how do they do that?

Yeah, if you watch the light as it finishes it's run, you can see it come to a complete stop and start lowering. (at least in the video I have) I always figured it was just a mechanism hooked to the tinkerbell zip-line. Probably a similar mechanism to the one they use now to fly the "real" tinkerbell around.
It was this light ball that was attached between the two posts now holding the two giant pinwheel fireworks for rember that help a good sized lighted ball that motorized back and forth, up and down. kinda cheezy looking but thats how it was done.
