‘Disneyland Forever’ fireworks spectacular returns

Making a triumphant return to Disneyland is the “Disneyland Forever” Fireworks show. This is not only a fireworks display (something Disney does so well) but it is also a show that immerses guests in the wonders of many of the Disney films with projections on the buildings, music we all know and love, and some special guests flying above.


Sleeping Beauty’s castle glows with colors and projections as the show progresses and the fireworks explode above. The guests are brought into the story of the chimney sweeps from Mary Poppins, Peter Pan (with Tinker Bell flying above the castle), Rapunzel, Winnie the Pooh (Heffalumps and Woozles), The Lion King, The Jungle Book, The Little Mermaid, Finding Nemo (with Nemo swimming above the castle), and Frozen.


If you are on Main Street U.S.A., the buildings will also show the projections and during the Frozen sequence snow falls on the crowd. This is one of the added Disney touches that help bring the magic to the show. But don’t worry if you decide to watch the show from the other side of the park. The “It’s a Small World” façade is also a place to see some of the great projections that go along with the music and the fireworks.


As Walt Disney said, “Disneyland will never be completed. It will continue to grow as long as there is imagination left in the world.” And there is plenty of imagination left.

Step into the magic with the Disneyland Forever Fireworks spectacular.

Wind prohibits the fireworks display and there are other considerations. Check for times on the Disneyland app or website.
