The Story of Disneyland Fireworks

Did you know: Disneyland Park has offered a fireworks show every summer since 1956!

When the shows originally began, fireworks fuses were lit by hand. However, by the 1960s, an electronic system launched the shells. Shortly thereafter, the popular entertainment spectacles were carefully synchronized to music too!

By the time the year 2000 arrived, Disneyland fireworks had become far more elaborate—featuring both Tinker Bell and Dumbo flying high overhead.

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