Many people have to wait until Fourth of July to see a spectacular fireworks show, but not here – and that’s one reason I love my job at the Disneyland Resort. Along with thousands of guests, I can see amazing fireworks combined with Disney magic throughout the year. Starting tonight through July 4, guests will see a fireworks spectacular that salutes America’s Independence Day: “Celebrate America! A Fourth of July Concert in the Sky.”
Special summer fireworks run every night at Sleeping Beauty Castle through Labor Day weekend. It’s the perfect way to end a day at the parks. (Of course seeing the new “World of Color” show at Disney California Adventure park is also a perfect way to end a great day. I’m just sayin’.)
Summer fireworks at Disneyland began way back in 1956. Five years later, the “Fantasy in the Sky” fireworks show debuted and ran until 2001. The next year a new show began, “Believe … There’s Magic in the Stars.” It ran for three summers. The summer of 2005 exploded with new fireworks in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of Disneyland. Guests were treated to “Remember … Dreams Come True,” a nighttime spectacular, narrated by the legendary Julie Andrews, that took guests on a nostalgic journey through the park’s history. It was a touching tribute to 50 years of magic. Last summer a new show lit up the sky. “Magical” premiered, and that’s the show currently running. Check out this video of the summer fireworks past and present, and then come see them in person.
