We always find a reason to include a fireworks show at Disney Parks and Resorts. It’s doesn’t matter if it’s during Halloween time, the Fourth of July or celebrating the maiden voyage of a new cruise ship, fireworks always make an event more magical! This week’s Take 5 falls on New Year’s Eve, so we wanted to take a look back at some spectacular fireworks shots from around Disney Parks throughout the past year. Here’s to a sparkling start to the new year!

  • How about New Year’s Eve fireworks shot from the Top of the World lounge?

  • I must say, the Disney Imagineers are doing a great job at continuing Walt’s vision using the technologies available today. I was 40 for my first trip to Disney, took my Mom for her first time at 64, my 7 year old has been 3 times and can not wait to see what new magic awaits us our next trip. Thank youºoº
