History

Disneyland Park has offered a fireworks show every summer since 1956.

At first, fireworks fuses were lit by hand, but by the 1960s an electronic system launched the shells, the shows carefully synchronized to music.

By 2000, the fireworks had become far more elaborate, with Tinker Bell and Dumbo flying overhead.

To reduce noise and pollution, Disney patented an air launch pyrotechnics system, which was put to use in 2004. The Company later opened the patent on the system so that others could enjoy the benefits of "greener" pyrotechnics.
