A LOT changed at Disney World when it reopened with new health and safety protocols in place.
This meant that a lot of entertainment, including parades and nighttime entertainment — like fireworks — is still not happening at the parks. Although we have seen some fireworks testing, Disney has not announced when they will return.
A lot has changed at Disney World since the reopening — character cavalcades have replaced parades, socially distanced character interactions have replaced traditional character meet and greets, and nighttime fireworks and shows have been temporarily suspended.
Some special events, Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, were also canceled last year.

That has left us wondering…what might happen this year with Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party?

A LOT is happening at EPCOT right now! The park is undergoing a major transformation — we’re already in love with the new fountain in front of Spaceship Earth (seriously, we can’t stop taking photos of it).

Last year, the global health crisis shut down all Disney Parks, including Tokyo Disney Resort, which includes two theme parks: Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo DisneySea.
When Disney World reopened, many of the resort’s entertainment options were either modified or shut down due to new health and safety guidelines in place at the parks.
This included much of the parks’ nighttime entertainment options, including the Happily Ever After fireworks show at Magic Kingdom and Fantasmic! at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
