When Disney World reopened last year, a lot had changed due to health and safety guidelines.
And one of the things that changed was Disney temporarily suspending its nighttime entertainment, which means guests haven’t seen a fireworks show in the parks in over a year, save for some occasional fireworks testing. But we’re starting to see some indications that we might see fireworks return in some capacity to the parks soon!
Not only have we been following the construction progress of Harmonious, EPCOT’s upcoming nighttime show, but we also previously saw a Disney job listing for a Principal Fireworks Designer. Well, we have now noticed ANOTHER job listing for a Fireworks and Special Effects Designer!
The job summary reads: “The Fireworks & Special Effects Designer develops/executes pyrotechnic and special effects designs for live shows across property, including Parks, Resorts, Special Events, and Disney Cruise Line.” Other responsibilities include ordering pyrotechnic products, supervising crews, and participating in creative development, and more.
In addition, the position involves developing and executing special effects and pyrotechnic designs for live shows, providing evaluations of existing shows, providing proper documentation of “all live show effects plots” at Disney World, developing and providing input with special effects budgets, and more!
If you or anyone you know is interested in the position, some of the requirements include three years of experience in the entertainment industry with live shows, as well as a working knowledge of current industry and technology standards in fireworks and special effects. Disney’s preferred qualifications, though, mention those who have previously worked for the company in live show development. You can read the full job description and apply here.
Disney has not yet released any details about when fireworks might return to the parks, but it does seem like the company is preparing to bring them back soon with these most recent job listings. We’ll continue to follow the situation and let you know what we find out!
