Designing a Disney Fireworks Show

FireworksAnyone who’s ever watched a Disney fireworks show has experienced that awesome, childlike feeling of wonder at seeing those spectacular bursts of brilliant color light up the night sky. It takes you back to the innocence of childhood, when life felt magical. But pulling off such a massive pyrotechnics display is not as easy as you might think. It involves a crew of trained professionals, as well as the process of selecting music, playing with color, and choosing individual fireworks as carefully as if you’re choosing actors for a play, in order to create an amazing story in the sky.

And with the Disney Parks celebrating Independence Week, some special Fourth of July fireworks spectaculars are taking place at both the Walt Disney World and Disneyland Resorts.

Check out the video below, in which Steven Davison, vice president of Parades & Spectaculars, gives a behind-the-scenes look at the work that goes into designing a Disney fireworks show. The thinking and planning that Steven and his team go through in planning a fireworks show explains why Disney fireworks are so much more magical than anywhere else. Check it out for yourself and be amazed at the dedication put into preparing those spectacular Disney fireworks shows:
