Have you heard? Fireworks are returning to Disney World!
Starting July 1st, we’re seeing Happily Ever After come back to Magic Kingdom, along with EPCOT Forever in EPCOT. And people are clearly excited — Park Pass reservations are going FAST! But the return of these nighttime spectaculars brings up other questions…namely about the After Hours BOO Bash event debuting in August.
BOO Bash is this year’s “replacement” for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, but it’s being marketed more as an After Hours event and less as a holiday party. However, while both Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party and select After Hours events have featured fireworks in the past, as of now, fireworks have not been announced for BOO Bash.
But should the return of fireworks change that? Well, we asked our readers on Instagram! And a whopping 93% of ya thought that yes, Disney should add fireworks to BOO Bash.
Since fireworks were a part of holiday events in the past, it’s not too surprising that most of you want to see ’em back. And considering BOO Bash tickets are considerably more expensive than they were for Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, it would certainly give guests a little more bang for their buck.
But of course, we have to remember that BOO Bash is a completely different event than previous Halloween parties. It’s shorter, with limited entertainment options (aka we’re not seeing parades either, just cavalcades). We also haven’t heard anything about themed ride overlays or character meet-and-greets just yet. We have just heard a bit about cavalcades and a few character pop-ups. So since other elements of Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party aren’t returning (at least as of now), does that mean fireworks won’t, either?
Now, we say “as of now” because there IS a chance Disney just hasn’t announced BOO Bash fireworks yet. After all, the return of Happily Ever After and EPCOT Forever was JUST announced! We may learn about a BOO Bash fireworks show as the start of the event draws closer. But of course, there’s no guarantee.
Regardless of what actually happens, it seems like a ton of you would LOVE to see fireworks at BOO Bash! What do YOU think? Let us know in the comments — and stay tuned to our Instagram for more fun polls!
