    Does anyone know how long will fireworks last?

    I was hoping some of you CM's out there would know when the last day for the fireworks will be this year.
    We are planning a trip the week and weekend of September 12-17.
    My daughter hasn't seen the fireworks yet, and I can't find any schedules for those dates. I know the park closes at 8:00 during the week, but what about the weekends when it is open to 10:00, 11:00, and 12:00?
    Any info would be greatly appreciated!

    Re: Does anyone know how long will fireworks last?

    I'm with you on this question, hopefully someone knows. It kind of sounds like all bets are off, as far as guessing what they will do. Some have speculates that they will show fireworks even during the week due to the 50th, and others are sticking with just the weekends. I will give a churro/ dole whip to the correct answer!

    The rumor is that fireworks will run every night for the 18-month 50th celebration.

    Re: Does anyone know how long will fireworks last?

    The decision of what to offer and when for the off-season entertainment still have not been made. The park folks are calculating numbers, both on the costs of the offerings, and how much they have made in additional attendance, and looking forward (using hotel bookings, etc.) to figure out what they should do.

    In the past, the parade was offered once daily in the off-season, usually in the early evening hours (to allow the CM's to attend school during the week), and that EITHER the Fireworks or Fantasmic! was offered on Friday thru Sundays.

    Based on some inside info, and that what the following is, some thoughts on what they MIGHT do...

    At DCA, Block Party Bash has been popular, but not driving additional attendance. Looks like ti will become a weekend only parade, though since they have advertised it so much, it might remain a daily parade.

    At Disneyland, expect the Parade of Dreams to be offered once during the wwek, and twice on weekends

    The Fireworks should be offered at least on the weekends, and might remain daily.

    The biggest question is what to do with Fantasmic! for the off-season. Will attendance on the weekends in the off-season pay for both the Fireworks and Fantasmic!...

    A decision is expected within the next week or two.

    Re: Does anyone know how long will fireworks last?

    I hope it comes soon. I have been assuming that the fireworks will only run on weekends since Disneyland closes at 8pm in the off season. I had also heard that they need to save their pollution credits and the only way to do this is only run them on the weekends.

    Anyways, Darkbeer knows much more about all this than I do, so please keep us updated.

    Re: Does anyone know how long will fireworks last?

    Thanks guys. I was hoping to hear the fireworks would still be offered on the weekends! I think its great if they decide to keep it up for the duration of the official celebration. After hearing from us how great they are, my daughter really wants to see them, and I'm sure many people do as well.

    I forgot to add, the decision on the Electrical Parade at DCA has been made, its last day is September 5th, and will go to a refurb status, with a scheduled return in May of 2006.

    Darkbeer,

    As always, thanks so much for the great info!!

    Can you please tell me what time the ELP will be on Sept. 5th?

    Also, with the ELP in mind, do you think they might have the fireworks on Sept. 5th as well? (crossing my fingers.....)

    I'm less concerned about closing time than I am pollution credits. By the end of October, it is dark enough by 6:00 PM (6:30?) to show fireworks ...... and if they're bringing the crowds in, they may extend the operating hours.

    But shooting off fireworks every day as opposed to just weekends is a 71% increase in air pollution discharge ........

    I had called Guest Services a couple weeks ago regarding "Remember..." and they said that all of the 50th Celebration events will be daily through the remainder of the 18-month celebration. But, that Fantasmic! will be going dark after Labor Day(2 days before we get there!)

    I'd expect Fantasmic! to be back for the Holidays.
